I keep hearing about paying their fair share. What is the millionaires fair share? when they have multiple homes, who maitains and cleans those homes? Don't they pay someone to do so? they pay taxes on those properties as well. Most contribute to charities and their local communities.
Business and corporations do not pay taxes their customers pay it through higher prices, who are those customers? (you and me) President Obama promised he would not increase taxes on the low and middle income people, yet the only way the "Affordable care act" passed the supreme court is they could not hinder governments ability to tax. So Obama care is a tax on all.
And those that say the Bush tax cuts were ment to be temporary. Research the sales tax, it was only suposed to be to help finance that one war and then recended. good one govenment give up money? they say they cut taxes but they then cut a deduction to make up the difference.

Everyone who pays income tax - and "some who don't"?? I am guessing that the majority of the typical Obama voters (the Cleveland lady screaming about her new Obama phone) don't pay ANY taxes and know more about RAP and HOP HOP than they do some Fiscal cliff !! Obama gonna take care of us man....

Elections have consequences! And those that Voted for Obama should enjoy the Fiscal cliff we are going to go over! Congress should zero! Not a dang blasted thing till Jan of 2016. Let Obama and his 47% enjoy and sleep in the bed they made for America.
