No more tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires

No more tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires

Why is the tax rate of one of the richest men in America, Warren Buffet, less than his secretary's?

Middle-class families should not pay a higher rate in taxes than the wealthiest Americans, but that is our current reality.

In his State of the Union, the President called on Congress to adopt the Buffett Rule—making the tax code fairer and simpler while asking millionaires and billionaires to pay at least 30 percent in income taxes.

Stand with the President and join the call for a more equitable and commonsense tax code.

      let's start by electing non-millionaire chief representatives...they don't worry as much as about upsetting their wealthy friends and funders...progress on this issue requires more than lip service

      I have trouble understanding WHY we give tax breaks to these people in the first place given that we are supposed to be a government "of the people and for the people." These people aren't worried about paying next month's mortgage payment, paying for a kid's braces, or--in some cases--putting food on the table tonight.

      What's so hard to understand about SHARED SACRIFICE? Particularly when the cause of the global meltdown was the greed of these vulture capitalists (thanks Rick Perry; that's the only five minutes you get from me).

      The simplest explanation, however, can be found in the fact that lobbyists outnumber "congresspeople" by more than five to one. In other words, the people we elect to represent US have sold their souls to the devil in return for campaign "donations/bribes" and only God knows what else.

      Although I'm not a member of the tea party I support Term Limits. I also believe lobbying should be made a capital offense. Let's start a petition to get the states to promulgate a Constitutional Amendment imposing Term Limits and outlawing lobbying!

      Fair's fair. This is supposed to be a democracy.

      I'm signing because this country was founded as a land of freedom and democracy, not where the votes of our elected officials are to be sold to the highest bidder, as they currently are. Democrats and republican alike.
