64% of people think we should raise taxes on someone else. I’m shocked.

Gee. Say something often enough, and people start to believe it, facts notwithstanding.

The Nazis sure could have used this tactic, couldn't they?

Oh, wait...

This is kind of taking on the flavor of those moments in the Coliseum in Ancient Rome when the Emperor asked for a show of thumbs up or thumbs down on the gladiator laying in the dust under the point of the sword.

He shouts, “Raise taxes on the rich???,” and the crowd goes wild.

“Raise taxes on you???.” Thundering silence!

Most people polled have no idea what taxes millionaires actually pay.

64% of a highly Democrat slanted sample of cockroaches want taxes raised.

cBS getting the answer they were looking for. Bad question plus a crappy sample will always do it.

This poll was conducted by telephone from September 28-October 2, 2011 among 1,012 adults nationwide.

64% of all Americans want millionaires to pay more taxes. I wish the follow up questions as follows were asked.

What percentage of their income should a millionaire pay.

2) What is the current percentage millionaire's currently pay.

I propose a compromise.

Increase taxes on democrat millionaires!

Release their tax returns so we can verify they pay it, or turn them over to Roseanne Barr.

Deal?

and send them a thank you note for the 20 minutes of government spending their extra taxes will pay for.

Millionaires do not pay taxes on their accumulated wealth.

People on the way to becoming millionaires are taxed most ruthlessly on the income flow that goes to BUILD the million, but passive gains are not taxed, as equity once established, that is, clear title without mortgages, the growth in its imputed market value, and in fact, its power to earn return on investment, continue to build value and contribute to the millionaire’s net worth.

The net effect of TAXING millionaires, is to reduce their return on investment, not to diminish their accumulated wealth.

Republicans often argue that increasing taxes on the wealthy will impact job creation. But the new CBS News poll finds that just 18 percent of Americans agree

In a related story, 82% of Americans have no concept of basic economic principles.

I suppose this is good news, I'd have thought it would be a higher number.

Still, there are mixed signals: Asked the most effective way for the government to get the economy moving, nearly half (47 percent) chose cutting taxes to encourage investment. Fewer - 37 percent - preferred spending more money to create jobs.

This is the part of the poll that actually matters. Almost half asked in this CBS poll (which likely skews Democratic) think we should cut spending to get the economy moving. Only 37% believe more spending, which is what Hussein supports, is the right approach.

(64%) want taxes on millionaires increased

Of course their take on the matter would change if they one day became the people they currently envy.

I’d love to see a polling outfit starting doing polls without the built in leftist premises.

“Should we increases taxes on the job creators even through Washington DC will use the money to expand the bureaucracy”

“Would you like to see millionaires who already pay 70% of the taxes taxed more even though unemployment will go up another 1-3%.”

“Should the rich, who already pay nearly all the taxes shoulder the burden while 50% pay zero into the system.”
