Meanwhile the rich have stashed $21 TRILLION in offshore tax havens.

@ Blue Bol. It can’t be that governments SPEND too much money can it? If anyone has earned a dollar they don’t owe it to you, believe it or not! The “rich” pay the vast majority of taxes already in these socialist economically suffering countries while the poor pay almost no taxes as it is! How much taxes are enough? There is not enough money in the world to pay for their socialism!

These socialists are like leaches sucking the economic life out of their hosts, and demanding ever more of what they did not earn nor deserve to receive! Wanting everyone else to sacrifice for them but are unwilling to sacrifice anything but demand all others must do so, or be called greedy, uncaring, out of touch and worse!

you ain't seen nothing yet ! Wait until Barack finishes another 4 years - oh my gosh!!! Can you imagine how nightmarish the US economy will be by then - 20 trillion in debt and most likely 15% unemployment. How will that impact the global economy? Disastrous!! Socialism is a failure - it's just too bad people of the US will have to actually experience all the "ugliness" before they believe...but by then it will be too late to reverse course and do anything about it. Hate to say I told you so but I did - I said in 2009 socialistic Europe would be going bankrupt left and right by 2012 and take a look. The US will be the next bankrupt nation unless we oust our socialist president... NOW!! It most likely won't hit home here until interest rates hit the teens and unemployment does the same. That is about 3 years off. What will that mean for your home? Your job? Your retirement? Your kids future?What I fear the most is that all this poisonous Obama-nomics will soon be irreversible. But I told you so.....remember.

the top 1% pay 39% of taxes. That doesn't seem too unfair. Moreover contrary to popular opinion when the economy goes bad the rich do less well. Many fall out of the millionaire class. Some countries are doing well. Estonia it is true is small, but they cut wages and pensions of public workers, cut taxes, did everything the Tea Party likes and are doing ok. Likewise for other countries. We have to stop this ridiculous spending craze and get people back to work. Most of Europe doesn't seem to understand socialist programs don't work just like Mr. Obama doesn't seem to understand or want to understand. We need a new president and Congress.

True or false?

From the Obama healthcare plan. Can the government can take our bank accounts and property during an emergency?

The 99% are doing all the work. Who are the leeches?
