Well their talk of higher taxes can only mean they want higher taxes on us but not them.

Fine, so while they visit and ask for higher taxes they can, at the same time, put their money where their mouth is.
Maybe we should have people volutarily agree to help out social security, pollition, bridge tolls. You are missing the point, one of the previous posters already explained, there is a problem with the tax system and congress needs to address the problem.

It must be difficult for the extreme right when one of the core groups that they are supposedly protecting from taxes, the "job creators" turns on them.
I could understand criticism if these were welfare recipients, but when millionaires and billionaires tell you they need to be taxed more, you really should look into their message rather than the simple response that has little or nothing to do with the issue at hand.

Congress has not once mentioned changing the tax system.
They just constantly talks of NEW TAXES.
