    How much did we give away to the already insanely wealthy.

    You're the financial expert, you tell me.

    These requests for exact dollar amounts are spurious.

    Oh.. and the wealthy and corporations should be taxed heavily - that IS where the money is at.

    Us poor folks ain't, by definition, got none.

    •  you are quite correct (0+ / 0-)

      the disastrous iraq war which i loathe is costing a ton of money - over half-a-trillion so far.

      but guess what? socialized healthcare would be far more expensive, and taxing "the wealthy" and corporations "heavily" won't get it done -- those in the middle and upper-middle class would also have to pay a great deal more.

      surely you can give me a figure here? maybe you could take as your model one of the european countries. like i said, france taxes income at 61 percent. would this satisfy you? if so, you should say so.

      •  So therefore, it's cheaper to kill people (1+ / 0-)

        than to care for them.

        Duly noted.

        And taxes are money. The richer people are the more money they have.

        10% of $20,000 is $2000.

        10% of $40,000,000 is $4,000,000

        You get a lot more zeros at the end of the real number when you tax people with more money.

        But what do I know?
