    Those who think they should pay more may always do so, there is nothing to stop them from writing checks to the gubmnt.
    If they think Nanny G does an exemplary job of distributing their spare cash, go for it I say! Just dont, bill gates, speak for other mega billionaires on the planet. You, bill, get to speak for YOU and only YOU.

    personally,
    i like it when the 1% and the 5% and even the 10% get to exercise largesse by supporting charitable institutions they value close to home. Us local folks working the events appreciate it when the local tycoons show up at park fundraisers, library galas, and etc. —makes us feel valued.

    one-size-fits-all federal gubmnt solutions, delivered impersonally by bureaucrats who may or ir may not be competent, is not the way to my heart.

    It's affected not effected, I guess grammar wasn't part of your expensive education, or reading comprehension. You thought I earn 29K.

Personally I do not mind paying taxes and expect to pay accordingly.
    UL is not vulnerable.

    Well, picking on my grammar and a simple reading mistake is probably your last refuge as you have been rhetorically spanked by me on here time and time again throughout this entire debate.

    Yppej looks down on under educated semi-literate schlubs.

    Just consider the source. BTW .... who cares what others think. Do what is important to you and ignore those who are jealous!
