I wonder if she mentioned the earnings of Barack Obama, George Soros, Michael Moore and other multi-millionaires who don’t seem to be paying their fair share?

All the libs, starting with Gates and Buffet (the rich one) down through the Kennedys and JF'nK and H! should empty out their bank accounts and sell their other assets to give it straight to the government voluntarily.

Then I might think they are serious and not just hypocritical bastards.

Is this why Brazilian illegals are in the USA all over the place and how they do not want to go back to that violent dump.

I guess Brazil can develop offshore PETROLEUM energy and can get the USA to fund it.

Brazil should be our example - very indicative of what they want in a society.

Really really RICH people and people in gov’t having all the perks and lifestyle,

and very very POOR people living in squalor.

Elitists like Hillary DESPISE the idea that the middle class can live essentially the same lifestyle as the elite can.

The truly rich don’t pay anything because they have the ability to arrange their affairs in such a way that they do not have “income”. That is one of a long list of reasons why we MUST get rid of the communist inspired income tax and replace it with something much more in keeping with what our founders envisioned.

So Hillary Clinton wants us to be more like Brazil while Hussein Obama wants us to be more like Spain.

Are there any Democrats who want America to be more like...., I dunno, America?

That’s EXACTLY what they want.
They have ENOUGH money themselves to live whatever lifestyle they’d like. They DESPISE the idea that others can live a little bit like them.

They want there to be a huge DIFFERENCE between the lifestyle they live and the lifestyle of the masses. It makes them, as elitists, feel even more elite.

Those crazy ‘progressives’ and their revision of history (and reality).

http://theautomaticearth.blogspot.com/2010/05/may-26-2010-economics-and-nature-of.html

So please listen closely: All the TARP bailouts, stimulus debt and Fed loans won’t work. Neither will a new conservative government. This is not a basketball game. We are not channeling Chick Hearn, calling this game before the final buzzer. While we prefer the illusion that “this time really is different,” eight centuries of history suggest otherwise:

“The lesson of history, then, is that even as institutions and policy makers improve there will always be a temptation to stretch the limits. ... If there is one common theme to the vast range of crises ... it is that excessive debt accumulation, whether it be by the government, banks, corporations, or consumers, often poses greater systemic risks than it seems during a boom. ... Highly indebted governments, banks, or corporations can seem to be merrily rolling along for an extended period, when bang — confidence collapses, lenders disappear and a crisis hits. ... Highly leveraged economies ... seldom survive forever ... history does point to warnings signs that policy makers can look to access risk — if only they do not become too drunk with their credit bubble-fueled success and say, as their predecessors have for centuries, ‘This time is different’.”

No, “this time” it’s never different. Get it? In the end, it doesn’t matter what happens to the Dodd-Obama financial reforms. The endgame’s never a Black Swan, it’s a very White Swan well known to historians — guaranteed, inevitable and inescapable. This time is never different. The clock’s flashing. Huge point spread. Think bear, think crash, think end of capitalism, think Great Depression II ... This is no buying opportunity, this game’s in the refrigerator, call it.

Brazil’s economy seems to be doing well, at least in part due to American auto makers moving manufacturing plants, and the jobs that go with them, down there to escape the insanity of the UAW and federal regulation they have to put up with here.

“I guess Brazil can develop offshore PETROLEUM energy and can get the USA to fund it.”

Yeah,and clean it up afterward. Seem to recall reading somewhere that a huge oil field has recently been discovered off the coast of Brazil. However, as I also recall (too lazy to research)the field resides in a trough about two or three miles down. Now, we are pushing the outer edges of current technology with the attempt to cap the BP well spewing out in the Gulf of Mexico. Just imagine the odd’s of capping an oil well leak two or three miles under the ocean....

“Brazil has the highest tax-to-GDP rate in the Western Hemisphere and guess what — it’s growing like crazy. And the rich are getting richer, but they’re pulling people out of poverty,”

So why are all the poor illegal aliens heading NORTH instead of South! Why do all the Haitians go to the US instead of Brazil!

According to IRS figures those in the top 5% of income are already paying 40% of all the income taxes paid and with 47% of those filing income tax paying nothing I would say the current system works fairly well. Brazil may look good to Hillary, but there are huge shanty towns in the major cities where thousands still live in squalor.

There is no wealth tax, so no, the rich can get by without paying their fair share.

There is an income tax, though, so the productive are Taxed Enough Already. Raising income tax rates will only affect the productive, not the wealthy.

If she’s not speaking for the Obama administration on this, why is she speaking publicly on it at all? It does appear as if she is trying to stir the Democrat base again.

Let's not use the word "better". Let's use the word "less disastrous". People on the right were hoping that some of Bill's practicality and inclination to listen to advisers like Dick Morris ( e.g., giving up part of his agenda to the GOP Congress, like Welfare reform and cutting capital gains tax ) would have rubbed off Hillary a little.

Between two Democrats, the choice really is between the lesser of two evils.

Conclusions often appear to be insane to someone else with a different worldview because those “insane” conclusions are based on a completely different premise or worldview.

Theirs happens to be WRONG, and based on infernal deceptions, but their conclusions are completely “sane” when you start from the same basis.

The highest marginal income tax rate in Brazil is 27.5%, capital gains are taxed at 15%, dividends from domestic corporations are tax free. The corporate tax rate is 24% to 34%, depending on the surcharges.
