    Now why would a "Socialist Progressive" allow that to happen?

    Or don't you remember what Obama is?

    L0L.

    Right on cue with the skewing of the data to make Obama seem responsible for debt created on Flightsuit's watch, the blaming of Congress for Reagan's tax reform disasters, and some wild conjecture about tax returns, Warren Buffet, etc.

    You have learned your Fox and Friends talking points well, grasshopper.

    Now how sad is that that Obama's already gone ahead and managed doubling all that up again and then some? And he's still got 2 years left on Reagan.

    I wish Reagan had done more to reign in spending in Congress. Unfortunately Democrats were willing to shut down the government (several times) in order to spend whatever they wanted. You know, things you'd consider criminal today (if a Republican did it)

    P.S. Your cherry-picked stat re: the top 1% paying all of the taxes is laughable.

    I guess you mean the rest of us are just imagining those deductions from our paychecks.
    Tons of people get something deducted from their paychecks. Doesn't mean they don't get it all back (plus an EIC bonus) come tax season. Whether you have money withheld or not is meaningless.

    Furthermore, it's the amount of tax as a percentage of income you should be looking at...but that would mess up your spin job, wouldn't it?

    Remember Warren Buffet admitting his secretary was taking it in the tailpipe compared to him?
    One, it's been established that Warren was probably exaggerating a bit about his secretary. Two, even if 100% true, all that proves is that Uncle Warren's already not paying what the top marginal rate says he should be.

    If he's working overtime to avoid paying his 40% rate today, what makes you think he's going to stand by while you charge him 90%?

    Although to be fair, with inflation, it's closer to what Democrats added in 2009 and 2010 combined. Still. Epic fail of an argument there.

    Anyway

    Progtastic! But Labron won't be happy until the 1% are paying all the taxes, plus cutting him a monthly check for being awesome.

    The top 1 percent of taxpayers pay more in federal income taxes than the bottom 90 percent. As you can see in the chart below, this is a stark change from the 1980s and early 1990s. But since the early 1980s, the share of taxes paid by the bottom 90 percent has steadily declined.
    In 1980, the bottom 90 percent of taxpayers paid 50.72 percent of income taxes. In 2011 (the most recent year the data is available), the bottom 90 percent paid 31.74 percent of taxes. On the flip side, the top 1 percent paid 19.05 percent of taxes in 1980 and now pay 35.06 percent of taxes.
    Progtastic! But Labron won't be happy until the 1% are paying all the taxes, plus cutting him a monthly check for being awesome.

    As far as us living under this mythological Reaganomics regime now?

    Tax-wise, we're living in Proggy Utopia. Needless to say, it doesn't work. Just stop blaming a guy who retired 30 years ago for the fruits of your own ideology.

    Our government was suddenly so badly awash in red ink that Reagan doubled the tax paid only by people earning less than $40,000/year (FICA), and then began borrowing from the huge surplus this new tax was accumulating in the Social Security Trust Fund. Even with that, Reagan had to borrow more money in his 8 years than the sum total of all presidents from George Washington to Jimmy Carter combined.

    Answer: by looting Social Security and by maxing out the national credit card.

    Buried inside a Congressional Budget Office report this week was this nugget: when it comes to individual income taxes, the top 40 percent of wage earners in America pay 106 percent of the taxes. The bottom 40 percent...pay negative 9 percent.

    You read that right. One group is paying more than 100 percent of individual income taxes, the other is paying less than zero.

    There you go with the revisionist history again.

    Saint Ron presided over a radical "live now/pay later" era.

    Anyone who was actually alive and paying attention during the 80s remembers this.

    I guess that's his only recourse when he's defending a failed ideology.

    Yeah, bitching and moaning about people with $2 trillion dollars when we've racked up about that much debt in the last 2 years is totally like irrelevant man.

    Pretty simple stuff.

    If you pulled a Lenin and put a bullet in every one of those guys' heads, and took every nickel to their name, it would have virtually no impact on our long-term budget problems. Oh, other than the fact that they wouldn't pay any taxes at all from that point forward, so future tax revenues would collapse.

    You can call that irrelevant if you want. Not sure what else can be expected from the rainbow-painted Unicorn salesmen.

    Soon we'll be $20 Trillion in debt and all you kids can do is blame everything on people who are only collectively worth 10% of that debt number.

    Think about that for a minute. Rounding up and scapegoating a few rich people is simply a distraction to get our focus off of what an unsustainable course we're on.
