    Biden says paying more taxes is "patriotic".

    I guess in his Socialistic world if you want the government to spend your money rather than yourself then is an act of patriotism.

    Biden: Paying higher taxes patriotic for wealthy


    WASHINGTON Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden said Thursday that paying more in taxes is the patriotic thing to do for wealthier Americans. In a new TV ad that repeats widely debunked claims about the Democratic tax plan, the Republican campaign calls Obama's tax increases "painful."

    Under the economic plan proposed by Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, people earning more than $250,000 a year would pay more in taxes while those earning less the vast majority of American taxpayers would receive a tax cut.

    Although Republican John McCain claims that Obama would raise taxes, the independent Tax Policy Center and other groups conclude that four out of five U.S. households would receive tax cuts under Obama's proposals.

    "We want to take money and put it back in the pocket of middle-class people," Biden said in an interview on ABC's "Good Morning America."

    Noting that wealthier Americans would indeed pay more, Biden said: "It's time to be patriotic ... time to jump in, time to be part of the deal, time to help get America out of the rut."

    Socialism = wealth distribution.

    Why don''t Biden start up a campaign to solicit money from his wealthy friends in the Democratic party and the Hollywood types to donate to the treasury. Soris could kick in a few billions along with those assholes that have tons of money offshore. The IRS would be tickled pink to take their donations. Pretty boy Edwards could kick in a few millions as he developed a legal scheme to avoid payroll taxes.

    It shouldn't matter how much a person makes. Penalizing those who make more or who are more productive is bad for the economy. Rewarding those who do nothing is bad for the econmy.

    We are a capitalistic society. We are not socialist.

    Calling all med school students: Drop out now!!!!!!!

    If BO is elected, you will not be able to repay your student loans. You will be "rich", and he doesnt care about what it cost for you to get there. So take my advice, go to nursing school, be "middle class" and let the government take money from the doctors and give it to you.
    **** Obama and **** you too.
