Be careful what you wish for.
We could always move the tax rates back to where they were when Reagan was in office.
It might actually pay for all of our military traipsing around the world.
Your comment tells us you have no clue what the real problem is. The fact the you think we can tax our way out of this is sad.
you stupid elitist pricks all have a big laugh about the EVIL CONSERVATIVE and you pat each other on the back to cheer on yet more and more government, more regulations, more taxation, theft and erosion of the civil society.
You know, it takes a truly exception level of delusion to think that it's the elite in this country who want more taxes on themselves, and the average working people who want to cut all benefit programs and social safety nets for the average working people.
Yes, I'm sure all the billionaire power-brokers in this country are all Democrats who just hate it when Republicans pass tax breaks and pro-corporate laws that benefit themselves greatly. "Oh no, please make me pay more taxes and take away these laws that allow me to lord over the poor like a God!" I can hear Donald Trump and the Koch brothers saying.
Tell me, what color is the sky in your world?
It's the moronic who believe we can tax our way out of this mess. sounds like you don't get that we NEED to cut all kinds of social programs and "safety nets" because we can't afford them in their current forms. We haven't' been able to afford them for decades. They are in dire need of drastic reforms. Have you bothered looking at what the bulk of our debt is coming from? It's not war and it's not military spending, although we can stand to make quite a few cuts there. It's 3 programs which are growing at a rate that far outpaces the growth of our economy. Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. These three programs make up the lion's share of our debt and are continuing to grow in costs at a rate that makes them fiscal cancers. No amount of taxing is going to fix this. We can cut all defense spending and tax all the wealthy at 100% and STILL not make a real dent in our problem. The sooner people pull their heads out of their asses and realize this reality the sooner we can force the corrupt scum we keep voting into congress can be forced to start doing their jobs.
And it's my right to take my business elsewhere.
Why is this modded flamebait? I tend to view this as a reactionary policy done by a person who clearly thinks far too much of his establishment. That's his right. Since I view his policy in that light it's my right to go somewhere else. The policy also strikes me as hypocritical as I'd be willing to bet that he has several cameras and probably audio monitoring throughout the establishment (also his right) and yet wants to ban others from doing the same thing.
It reminds me of those few gun stores where they ban their customers from carrying a gun while their staff is openly carrying. Sure, it's their right to ban such but it's still hypocritical.
How is it hypocritical for gunshop owners to ban the carrying of loaded guns in the shop? You think the gunshop staff is going to rob YOU at gunpoint?
So when you emigrate to Canada because your land is now a desert, make sure to drag along a few billion tons of topsoil with you.
Why do people like you seem to believe a warmer planet means more deserts? Fact is a warmer planet means a wetter planet as well since water that was once locked in ice is now freed up and enters the water cycle. Please show me where they have proven that a warmer planet means the lower Us becomes a desert. They haven't. If anything researchers have said a warmer planet would mean more land to grow food on as well as longer growing seasons. More people die every year all over the world from cold weather related complications than do of warm weather.
