White House Press Secretary Jay Carney has said, “Everyone ought to pay their fair share. Part of paying their fair share is simply suggesting that the highest income Americans, those making over $250,000, the top 2%, including millionaires and billionaires, can afford to, and should, pay income taxes at the marginal rate that was in place in the 1990s when we had one of the strongest economies in American history and when we created 24 million jobs.”

I don't even grasp what is fair about 35%. Especially when you top that with state and local income taxes, which push some poeple to the 50% range.

Yep....let's get more $ from the job creators and give to the gov't. I'm sure the gov't will do a better job with that $. They always do don't they? We had such amazing results after both Bush and Obama stimulus checks went out.

I feel richer...don't you?
