While the news media and republicans portray the tax debate as raising taxes again, they detour the debate about raising taxes. The coddled wealthy pay a far less percentage than the 99%. Fair is fair. If you are fortunate enough to make lots of money, then you should pay the same rate we all do. No breaks. The argument about wealthy create jobs is far from the truth. The wealthy have had a super low tax rate for years and no jobs. I guess that doesn't work. Mexico has a 10% tax rate. Don't you love the infrastructure they never build. We will sink into the despair of a country like Mexico if we do not pay our bills at a fair tax rate. I think we should collect all the taxes from the wealthy they have gotten out of over the last ten years and pay our bills! Deficit wiped out.
