    Howard Dean: "The Truth Is Everybody Needs To Pay More Taxes, Not Just The Rich"



    HOWARD DEAN: The only problem is -- and this is initially going to seem like heresy from a progressive is -- the truth is everybody needs to pay more taxes, not just the rich. And it's a good start. But we're not going to get out of this deficit problem unless we raise taxes across the board, to go back to what Bill Clinton had and his taxes. And if we don't do that, the problem is the pressure is going to be on spending even more.

    This may be the last Christmas of online shopping without paying sales tax.
    A proposed online sales tax has been offered as an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act, much to the ire of opponents.

    Poll shows support for raising taxes on the rich

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Americans prefer letting tax cuts expire for the country's top earners, as President Barack Obama insists, while support has declined for cutting government services to curb budget deficits, an Associated Press-GfK poll shows. Fewer than half the Republicans polled favor continuing the Bush-era tax cuts for the wealthy.

    There's also a reluctance to trim Social Security, Medicare or defense programs, three of the biggest drivers of federal spending, the survey released Wednesday found. The results could strengthen Obama's hand in his fiscal cliff duel with Republicans, in which he wants to raise taxes on the rich and cut spending by less than the GOP wants.

    Once again I say Flat TAX.
    Everyone pays the same %, no deductions.
    Boy will I never make friends with the 1% er's.
    Say around 25% and I would bet the people and the goverment would be better off than ever, shortly.
    One FLAT TAX for everbody.

    And what would that flat tax be for guys making the -15% wages that I make, I feel like I'm getting taxed at about 35-40%, also I really don't give a crap about the "1%'ers" and I like my deductions thank you.

    1%ers don't really pay the tax. It's an income tax therefore a billion dollar income would be sheltered off and a mere salary would be taken. Isn't that right Mr Buffet?
