Do not extend tax cuts for the wealthy

Deficit spending in the U.S. is out of control and extending the Bush era tax cuts for the wealthiest among us is adding to this problem

        What we need is an ethics commitee to reel in the people in our government that are undermining this country for there own benifit or the benifit of some special interest group that has a bad agenda for our country. We need to make a it a crime to be against this country. Take the money out of politics.Make politicians accountable to the people they serve and make sure they serve the people and not monopoly makers because this is not a game and the boiling point keeps getting closer by the day. So please, do something about this miscarriage of justice and ethical logic that has devestated our country.

        we need a top tax rate of 90% like we had in the fifties, sixties, and seventies, so we can upgrade the infrastructure of the country again, just like they did then. history can repeat itself.

        All of the comments before are correct. The disparity between the have and have nots has never been greater. When wealth was more evenly distributed, everyone, including the rich, was better off. Tax rates for the wealthy should be increased not cut.

        These guys (and Gals) have been skating for 30 years by not paying their share of taxes. They want something for nothing, and that just doesn't cut it anymore.

        No cuts for the wealthy.Invest some of the revenue into infrastructure renewal

        Supporting tax cuts for the middle class will help the economy by encouraging spending but tax breaks for individuals earning over $500k per year tend to go into savings. I would be in favor of raising the ceiling on Bush era tax cuts from $250k per year to a higher limit. Maybe $400k, even $800k so higher earners still benefit from cuts up to a higher limit.
