    We really have to raise taxes.

    Here's what I propose: Income under $100,000 pays no income tax (other than state). Anyone earning over $100,000 pays progressively more to cover the cost of this tax break. Then charge capital gains, even on long-term investments, to brokers, banks, etc. in the same way that with managed money they charge for their services a percent of your investments, whether those investments grow or not.

    Everybody should pay taxes at some level -- even if it's $10

    The meeting is to define the structure of the bailout, the thread is to alert people before the nasty deed is done. Perhaps you are irate because you will be a benificary of this theft?

    Not according to the article, genius.

    Can you give me some winning lottery number?

    Perhaps I'm tired of unthinking trolls.

    Now maybe this is the real topic of the meeting? Oh, yes. Of course it is. But there are options on the table, including cuts.


    Troll mod strikes again! You are the best automaton.
