Productivity isnt up.
Nor is the amount of employed, but rather unemployment is still up.
Do you realize that the so called rich pay the majority of the taxes now? Something rediculous like at least 50% of the income comes from the so called rich?
How bout, instead of raising the taxes we instead look at cutting spending first? Wouldnt that make sense?
So you are saying everybody should make the same amount of money as each other?

After several attempts to edit my previous post I have been unable to do so. It keeps telling me it's been edited but it hasn't. The I meant to write in the first sentence that poverty level is generally classified as $18000 or less and many people below that line are liable for hardly any federal income tax and many times are liable for ZERO income tax.
