I heard Stuart Varney say the other day that 10% of Americans pay 90% of the taxes.
I also hear politicians say they just want to make things fair. I know many people don't pay any taxes (income taxes) but receive a lion's share of services. How is paying nothing while other people are paying a lot...fair?
The "motherland" did not give them any opportunity. Individuals took personal risks, invested their money to make those opportunities for themselves. Their hard work is what made them, not the government.
I agree everyone should pay the same rate. Are you willing to, because you will have to pay a much larger percentage of your earnings to the government to pay the "same" rate as the wealthy?
I'm so tired of hearing the socialist politically correct assertions about the wealthy being passed off as fact when the truth is far different. You want an equal level playing field? Then pay the same rate as the wealthy. You can make voluntary contributions of earned become to the federal government. So will you?
Last warning, get it back on topic, GM to open factory in China.

I hope GM makes tons of money on the Chinese and repays all of the loans. The more successful GM is in China, the better.
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
If GM makes cars that sell in Shanghai, will you have to pedal them; like Fred Flintstone?
