US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Tuesday urged the wealthy across the Americas to pay their "fair share" of taxes in order to eliminate poverty and promote economic opportunity for all.

How long have they been waging the war against poverty here in the USA since LBJ and we have been taxed to death and we still have the poor.

Liberals should be legally constrained from using a few words since they obviously fail to understand the real meaning of those words...such as: fair, justice, honesty, honor...there are many more, but those could be a start.

This from the same ditz who used to donate Willie’s old boxers to charity and claim them as charitable deductions on her taxes at three bucks a pop! Cool!

“winner-take-all-approach” was a drag on progress

Well, I agree with that. The system as it is allows entities to petition/purchase favorable legislation/regulation that disallows competition.
The limosene liberals are famous for their efforts to ‘pull up the ladder of success’ after them to keep others from following. They really hate small business.
