I completely agree. But of course instead of raising taxes on the rich, they take thousands of dollars away from my grandmother every year because they dont take enough out of her taxes during the year... And she has been working her entire life and they will not help her at alll to fix the problem...

Taxing the rich will provide the government with more money, but what will it be spent on? The real issue with the budget isn’t the funds coming in, but what the funds are being spent on. If taxes are raised on the rich and on businesses, why would businesses want to continue production in this country? In the 1950s and 1960s people took pride in what it meant to be American made, now if it’s cheap and will do the job for a little while, its good enough.

There is something compellingly wrong with the system. I feel that the richest will never pay their fair share as they pretty much control who gets elected.......and they would never elect anyone who would raise their taxes. It' refreshing to see a handfull of millionaires and billionaires declaring that they would like their taxes raised. I don'tmind paying the rate that I pay, but it would be nice if it was fair across the board.

I just don't think you can categorize people as "rich".. Each person has earned their money differently and has a different life... Just because you make a certain amount of money doesn't mean its pure profit.. Those people could own companies and the amount that goes out isn't even taken into consideration... Although I think we should all pay taxes I just don't necessarily think all the responsibility should be placed on those who are defined as rich.

Jeff (Phoenix HUM/114) Yes in the 1950's and 1960's Americans were proud to make American products and sell them, which in turn made this country so successful. Today, American people have lost that sense of pride. I feel everyone should pay their fair share and a flat tax percentage should be instated. However, the government needs to be watch what they spend the money on instead of throwing money at big businesses that are to big to fail.

I don't agree with this solution. The redistribution of wealth from those of us who work very hard to those that choose not to work hard is socialism at its worst. But playing devil's advocate, let's say I did agree. I don't think adjusting the top rate would matter. Most people who would be in the top tax rate do not earn their money as "taxable income". Remember, the top tax rate is a "marginal" tax, not an aaverage tax. An example is Mitt Romney. He would still be paying an average tax of 14% because most of his earnings are capital gains, not taxable income tax.

I agree to a certain point that was a different erra i think we should start taxing countries that import goods into the usa to sell for profits like the usa use t do. I worked in transportation for years china pays hardly anything and most time nothing at all. How is that right.

Taxes are a hard thing to fix in generalizations, and throwing emotional words on a poster and elicit a feeling is despicable.

Tax the "rich" more sure, guess what, they'll find a way around it, or to not have to pay so much. There's a reason they're considered "rich" and currently may or may not pay enough in taxes.

The overall distribution of wealth I think causes more of a problem then trying to tax one "class" more than another.

Lol, defeated Communism? And created the Internet? Wow, okay, the Federal Government Indoctrination Program or Department of Education wasn't created until the 1970's, 1979 to be exact by Carter, so the tax rate had nothing to do with it(I'm not even sure how you can make that correlation). The Cold War ended with Reagan in the 80's not the 60's, I guess this is talking about when Johnson invaded Vietnam, and nobody paid those high taxes, read up on history and you find that there were so many loopholes, the rich didn't have to pay those taxes. Why punish rich people for being successful? The government is the one who bailed the failing corporations out. And if you want better roads, tell Obama to quit blowing stuff around the world, and use some of that money to build stuff here. Btw, over taxation, and taxation itself was one of the reasons we fought the British, can you seriously not see, we as a society are becoming what we fought against?

Nothing happens in a day. The things listed resulted from decades of taxing the rich, providing for the poor and middle class, job growth from the post-war needs of the Greatest Generation and their kids (the Baby Boomers) and lot of hours by millions of workers over decades.

Johnson did no start the Vietnam War. Regan did not end the cold war. The year something happens is not the cause or the solution. It take and took millions decades. There are walls at the CIA, NSA, FBI, MI5, MI6 and other agencies around the world that testify to that, along with military graveyards and civilians who will never be known for what they did. Truth hurts and cannot be pissed away with simple dates or claims. A reasonable tax structure that taxes the rich did create or contribute to the properity of the Eisnehower,Kennedy and Johnson years. FYI those taxes were raised under a Republican, Eisenhower. Reagain raised taxes (he did not lower them). Check your history.

Totally for taxing the rich. If you have more cash, you can afford to be taxed a little more.
