Taxes, the rich people need to pay theirs.

Barockeva, they do. The top wage earners pay most of the taxes.

The rich pay 80% of all taxes (as in the top 10% of earners).
40% of working Americans pay NO TAXES (Social Security isn't technically a Tax)

And involuntary manslaughter isn't TECHNICALLY murder, but they still end up dead. Social Security is taxy and taxish if not technically a tax. If we imposed a 90% flat income tax and called it 'juice money for when you're old' it'd still be a tax.

They're gonna tax me anyway, repubs or dems. I'm just tired of paying for a war I'm not getting any oil kickback from yet (did ya pay for gas this past summer?). I'd rather spend a trillion on education and healthcare if I have to pay in, and I do.
