Finally something we can agree on! I've been saying that for a while! Tax an imported product so that the price is the average price of a US made product. See how long exporting jobs will last. Oh, and add to it any outsourced call centers pay a 50% tax.
I don't know what poll you saw, but all the ones I saw on TV, and in newspapers showed 65% of Americans did not want the healthcare reform that was being proposed passed into law.

I find it hard to stomach all the vehement angst against the rich.
I am not rich. Not by any means.
But please try to think about this in another, more generalized context; If you and your neighbor had a garden and your neighbor worked hard all summer long to procure food and you watched t.v., would you demand - quite literally legally ensnare - him/her to give you some of that food simply because they had more? Really?
Americans should band together and replace all current politicians with unknowns. Hell, they can't do any worse than what we have now! Pull back all expenditures and review/prioritize what is being spent. If it is not for security, infrastructure, or health, then it doesn't get spent. Do that and THEN you can start to plan for other things that help AMERICANS, NOT anyone else!

That is a dangerous statement.
I take the bafoons words as a direct threat to me.
I worked 50 years and paid my taxes gladly.

It's an idea to float. But instead of suggesting an alternative, you attack without any. Dare I say "typical" of todays political climate...? Yes, I dare say.
