If taxes continue to go up to the point where we have no middle class since Obozo is all about tax and spend wealth redistribution what would you call it?

The bottom 90% of income earners has had a salary increase of $59 over the past 40 years while productivity has doubled. The top 10% has increased $116,071. So, we could actually do with some wealth redistribution, thank you very much. I'm guessing you're in the 90% bracket, so you'd benefit from that.

As for taxes, they're lower than they've ever been. Given the state of our infrastructure and debt, I'd say it's time to raise them, especially on the wealthy who haven't had rates this low for a long time. It hurts the country when they don't pay enough.

I'm fine with raising taxes, but there's a stipulation to that. Massive spending cuts, and neither party, dems especially want to cut anything that's not military.

We're going to be at 20 trillion in debt by the end of Obama's 2nd term here. That to me is a problem. When the government proves to me they can balance a budget and stop putting so much pork into bills that no one apparently reads anyway, then I'll care about taking more from the job creators.
