I'm afraid that as long as federal spending equals votes, the spending will never go down. As long as elected officials, government employees and union members have salaries and benefits that exceed the average citizen, the spending will not go down until it's too late.

Another interesting graph that may explain more the income vs outgo gap!
Bloomberg Reports had another one in one of the latest magazines but based on age 18-65 that was even more dramatic. Sorry can't find it on the web. But it had employment of 18-65 yo males at below 65%!!!
Imagine if we could get Democrats to pay their taxes!!:D
Amazing. Reminds me of the rich southern plantation owners getting the working poor to charge into union cannons for them....and their lavish lifestyle that the cannon-fodder were never going to share in even with a southern victory. Its happened before, its happening now, and it will happen again. I guess if you're rich, its good to have a gullible populace to do your work, pay your taxes, and fight your battles.
You are a freaking doctor and you are playing the class envy BS. "I guess if your rich" Give me a break! YOU ARE A HECK OF A LOT RICHER THAN A LOt OF FOLK ON HERE. Quit your BOO HOOING I am sick of hearing it!
I say start tracking the ones who pay none and see how much "assistance" they get along with the tax return they get.
If anything I was saying they should pay more! You got it all backwards, with all due respect.
Also, when the 250k line was drawn as somehow denoting "rich", that was under Reagan, and wages and CPI were a little different then.
If anything, I'm calling for a flat tax that ALL will be required to pay. Not just the working class, while the megarich get their loophole rate HALF of what I pay. Hope you don't have a problem with that.
DNF.... You can certainly stroke a check to uncle sam..... go ahead..... if you think that you rich folk should pay more...... let your wallet do the talkin......
empty checkbook regards........
