CRY ME A RIVER I live on planet earth. The top 10% pay more than half of all federal taxes and the top 1% alone pay over a quarter of all federal taxes. that's coming from The Congressional Budget Office. So that means that 11% of americans pay more than 79% of americans. What a "free ride". Look at the big piture CRY ME A RIVER. These really rich people are going to start really laying people off if the goverment takes more of their money. Listen, I don't think anyone should be paying more taxes. If goverment officails can't work with the money they're already getting maybe it's time to get new representatives. Also, if you're busting your ass everyday and you're not moving up in the world find a better job even if it's not your "dream job". Stop telling yourself there's nothing out there.

bawhahahahaha!!!    

Funny that Democrats, or the braindead that voted for Obama, aren't too proud to demand money that isn't theirs and that they didn't earn; but yet they are too proud to admit that they want the Government to come into their homes, whip their chins and asses for them like a little baby and tuck them in at night. Do you fools realize the two aren't mutually exclusive? In demanding for someone (Big Brother) to take care of you since you're incapble of taking care of yourself, you're essentially admitting you're an incompetent, lazy child. No wonder all you people look like sh@t. I wouldn't be able to look myself in the mirror either if I were you.

First of all, in what country can you take 65% of 6 and get 3.5? I guess the same country where a man can make more money fighting, than another man can make educating the youth.

Wow    

First of all, he's Canadian so he needs to STFU about paying taxes. If it wasn't for this country, he wouldn't have a job. This country and its people gave you a job and it expects you to pay taxes as everyone else does. Second our president won't be taking 65% of anything from him. The only people who need be worried are the super-rich (read: billionairs, MULTI-millionaires). He's a "professional" wrestler, so he isn't raking in multi-millions or billions.

Yeah Yeah    

drew , I am happy with my job thank you very much. But unlike you and most of the people on here, I happen to care about my fellow Americans, and I know that everyones situation is different and prosperity doesn't come easy for everyone. I also know that not everyone wants to be rich, they would just like a decent living wage. Not everyone is capable or competent enough to get a good paying job or have the time and money to invest in an education. If you like working a job that you don't like, good for you. Also instead of the really rich laying off their employees because of taxes, maybe they should try decreasing their pay and not giving themselves million dollar bonuses. "Which for some companies are at the tax payers expense". that everyone on here fails to mention. I guess if your rich it's okay to throw lavish parties or to give executives million dollar bonuses at the tax payers expense. And you sure as hell can't tell me that the wealthy haven't had it had it easy for the past 8 years,.

Wow, the stimulas plans were pushed through by both parties, without anyone really reading it and with addendums that ALLOWED over compensation..hence the millions of tax payer money to corporations. Also, the wealthy HAVE had it easier for centuries...that is why people want to BE wealthy! For some reason, people on here are referring to others who make in the 6 figures as wealthy...as one, I can guarentee you that is not the case. Before you say anything, we have little credit card debt, live in a middle class neighborhood, have only one car payment...take realistic vacations. We live WITHIN our means, and don't feel compelled to run out and get the latest gadget, piece of jewelry, or clothing. Between income tax, sales tax, local wage tax (4.5% in our neck of the wood), Tax on gasoline, property tax ($6,700), we are already giving up more than HALF our salary in taxes.

You speak of the unemployable, untrainable, unable to find time to be trained...we already HAVE programs for hard to place people. What we need is the government to allow, encourage, provide incentives for industry to retain and attract employees HERE in our country. Do I think many of these Corporate bigwigs are over compensated, you bet your sweet ass, but if they are a private company, without stimulas $$, then c'est la vie....are not at least pretending to still be a capitalistic country? And God forgive me, but I think you are well compensated if you get $7 an hour for making a burger. I know it would be great if minimum wage was $20 an hour, I believe in compensation based on the skill involved, etc. I am dying to know what percentage of your time and money do you donate to charity....we are at about 10%, and YOU?

moi ~ Very soon, the "folks" on welfare will have to give a piss test before they recieve a check! I am ALL for this and feel it should be implemented immediately! Maybe it will force some on these folks to get a job and stop having babies they can't afford.

Ive noticed how everbody here against Obama/Republican hasnt mentioned a word about the WAR America is still in. How its still eating up Billions of America's money & finally who's idea it was to start a war...

You can blame Obama for everything you can think of, but as long as you know that Mr Bush f*cked up the country waayyyy before Obama was even heard of.

P.S: To the fool who obviously hadnothing constructive to add & are was saying that Obama uses a telepromter. I would rather have Obama using one & getting his speeches correct than have that brain dead fool (Bush) effing up every word he managed to put together...

Thank you.

I did not bother to read all the Comments because it was very evident from the begining that all the Obama defenders where going to come out of the woodwork. Well, as was said by another President, "if you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen". Obama is going to have people who do not agree with him. Every President does. Disagreeing with him does not make one un-American and if we every want to get beyond racism in the country minorities need to QUIT PULLING THE RACE CARD! Sheesh, some woman on a reality cooking show did that last night and there was NO evidence of racism...so knock it off! Anyway, you cannot pull the race card with Obama....he is both black AND white.

What is happening is this. His approval ratings are dropping. Go ahead and look it up. They dropped 5% points from Feb to March and his disapprove ratings have risen 9%. That is a 14% swing. Let's see, he won the election by 7%...sounds like if the election were today he would lose. Of course, I am sure that the ratings would be the same for McCain if he had won, too. That is just the way things work out. And for those of you who like to whip on the "rich people" realize that "rich" will be determined by this administration and it will probably include you in the future.

The rich deserve to pay more, since they make more and have more. This effects people who make more than $250K a year. Nobody I know! Since us poor folk have to suffer through this economic crisis, the rich should feel the pinch, too. It's payback time!
