    "For that type of goal failure people in the real world would have lost their jobs."

    Yup. Problem is, those on the receiving end continue to vote for the same perps who promise to keep the gravy train on the tracks, so they get to keep their jobs in total contradiction to common sense.

    Look at story with link I have posted. Read the last sentence after the pie chart. Remember most of Europe has higher taxes than the US.

    Rick - it isn't very clearly stated in the story, but I think what is being said is that the $10.9 trillion dollars of wealth which disappeared is money lost in failing European economies. I don't believe that it means $10.9 trillion was put in suitcases and hauled off to be hidden in secret bank accounts in tax havens. Nevertheless, that is a pretty amazing statistic - 89% of the money lost worldwide was in Europe. I wonder how the underground economy did; the drug lords, the illicit arms dealers, the human traffickers, etc.

    Much of the European money that left came here and bought our land. They are escaping! They are buying up land around here as fast as it comes up for sale.

    for your reading enjoyment - an interesting website that I don't believe 100% but they were entirely on top of Benghazi before Fox news, including the firings of General Ham and Adm Gaouette for mounting a rescue effort and refusing to 'stand down'.

    http://www.whatdoesitmean.com/index1633.htm

    So, according to Russian source there is a large influx of 'financial refugees' flowing from Europe and US...

    In all this hysteria about raising the top tax rates some simple facts seem to get left out...

    First of all, the proposed rise is only a little over 4% - which would put the top rate at 39% more or less -
    the same rate it was when Clinton was president and 20 million jobs were created.

    During the Reagan years the top tax rate was between 50 and 70%.

    Of course, no member of the "1%" pays the full percentage due to all the tax breaks available under the tax code, so even a 4% increase would probably end up being less than that in reality...

    Rick, I know it is hard for you to accept but when the gov. lowers taxes , they take in less revenue and have to borrow. Seems simple enough

    Rick Barker,

    That's what he's saying, the main problem isn't wacko spending, it's that we are not taxing the rich enough. I think that anyone with more than $150,000 of total assets should have everything above that amount confiscated for the poor!

    jamesf , I am not saying spending is not a problem. Spending is fine if they have the cash. If Congress does not increase taxes on the rich, they will raise the taxes on everyone else. Someone has to pay.

    That graph left out the part where it went straight up the last 3 years, in fact they remarkably didn't even label the last two years' Amazing.

    See that little flat spot (shouldn't it have been a dip?)for 2000? That was Slick Willie's "surplus" created by the Y2K (you know Y2K = 2000)bubble just before Greenspan's incessant interest rate hikes (I believe it was 14 of them)handed Dumb Ol' George a recession to work with in year one (along with 9/11 and a few other obstacles).

    If that Democrat Paulson (Treasury Secy.)hadn't scared Dumb Ol' George into bailing out Wall Street, he could have let Jughead get credit for all of the doubling of the debt instead of just 75%. LOL

    Remember back when Dumb Ol' George was running things, the libtard socialists would be on here every week wanting to discuss the national debt vs Horndog's big "surplus" deficit. Ah, the good old days.
