    What a shame that the Repub party of today doesn't even remember what their hero Ronald Reagan actually did while he was president.

    Yes it's true that Ronnie blew up the National Debt VASTLY more than President Obama - and Ronnie raised taxes on middle class Americans while President Obama hasn't - but to say that there's no connection is obviously bullshit.

    They BOTH advocated making the rich pay their fair share of taxes.

    "COMMIE"?
    For real?
    LMAO!
    FYI - its not 1955.

    And what was the result of Ronnie reducing taxes on the rich?
    Reagan more than tripled the National Debt!
    No president comes close to Ronnie for blowing up the National Debt!

    30+ years later and all that Reagan debt is still waiting to be paid off.

    I thought the Buffett rule was only what you can eat while in the restaurant. You're not allowed to take any food home with you.

    And a question for you, RickRick.

    What is Mr. Obama proposing - besides "taxing the rich" - for a second term, should he be re-elected?

    ON THIS PLANET - Mitt Romney's tax rate SHOULD be 30%.
    BUT Mitt has used every slick tricky tax loophole and every selfish method of tax avoidance possible - and Mitt has cut his tax rate down to 15%.

    MULTI-MILLIONAIRE MITT is paying a lower tax rate than his secretary.

    Warren Buffett has said that's wrong.

    President Obama has said that's wrong.

    AND FORMER PRESIDENT REAGAN HAS ALSO SAID THAT'S WRONG.

    But the greedy and corrupt Mitt Romney thinks it's "MARVELOUS".

    Mittens is the poster boy for tax loophole abuses.
    And the foolish Repubs have chosen him to be their party's nominee!

    Thanks, Repubs!

    What is each of our "fair share"?

    http://www.ntu.org/tax-basics/who-pays-income-taxes.html

    The link is just income tax. Think about the effective tax...not just income tax. How many taxes can you name 50, 100...more?

    If we as a society are too fucking stupid to figure it out and everyone needs to pay their "fair share" maybe we should just have one flat tax only for each US, state, county & city governments with zero deductions and zero loop holes. Then start with an across the board (you pick the percentage) spending cut (not a reduction in the increase but a real cut)? If there's still a deficit, increase taxes by the same amount of across the board cuts.
