Not that there is any critical thinking coming from any of you, but the rich don't pay taxes and they never will. Increase taxes on them all you want. Since the rich are rich because they are the "suppliers", you (and I) will be paying the taxes for them. It's Economics 101. At least, that's what was taught when I took economics. God knows, yes I said "God", what they teach now, but it must be something like, "Get the rich! We'll just take what we want instead of work for it!"
