    Do you guys even stop and think that it's guys like him that BUY politicians to write tax laws that suit them? Then you give them credit for just being smart enough to not pay any more than is due them?

    I seems to me that their has been a lot of praise in this thread for guys working within the tax code, yet some all called leaches and others are called heroes. Its funny if the guy is rich and they find a way to pay very little in taxes they are applauded and if you are lower income your a leach.

    Here, let me help.......

    I think the issue is with people who are multi-generational tax liabilities, having never paid a penny of taxes.

    I don't have the VAST financing expertise of say a sambo, but paying almost $3 million in taxes hardly seems a tax liability.

    No..........If you pay your taxes, provide employment for others, thus allowing them to also pay taxes, risk some of the money you have EARNED by investing in businesses (also providing employment for others who can then pay taxes) and risk some more by helping various communities across our formally great nation (by investing in bonds) and give generously to charity, you may deserve admiration. If you are an able bodied adult and you live off the work of others and TAKE the money paid in by the above or continue to breed offspring that you can't (or won't) care for, you are a leach. That seems pretty simple to me.

    I have not said that $3MM is not a lot of money....but it is unfair to the americans that pay more of a percentage of their income that they need to pay bills. This guy pays only $3MM when he makes $24MM...he is not worry about having money to pay a mortage, put a kid through college and he is using the system to not pay his intended share....that simple...I can't understand why you are good with that.

    Almost 50% of the American People - have ZERO Federal Tax Liability - ZERO -(shouting) - How (smart guy) do we give them - who give Zero - A Tax Cut???? Go a head and use your math skills............. waiting................ and still waiting...............

    This debate is about spending!!!!! -- get it!!

    Using "scare tactics" is a real sign of a weak argument on your part -- - or lack of intellectual ability....OR you are so biased towards the other party you will never see both sides.........
