  1. Yep, they hoard their money and spend it all on hookers and blow....or Spacex, Tesla, Blue Origin, the Gates Foundation, et al.
  2. https://taxfoundation.org/summary-latest-federal-income-tax-data-2018-update/ The top 1 percent paid a greater share of individual income taxes (37.3 percent) than the bottom 90 percent combined (30.5 percent) I would say that is a fair share
  3. They are, it is just not being ignored by the press.
  4. With Pelosi taking her ball and going home until after the election, there is not much else on his plate.
  5. What are you talking about, he was flying Around on AF2 and cutting pay-to-play deals with his dad.
  6. The top 50% of income earners pay 97% of income tax the bottom 50% pay the remaining 3%. The lower 17% did not only pay zero income tax, they got $65 billion in earned income tax credit handouts. Please explain just how this “shift” occurred. It was globalization and open boarders that demolished the lower and middle class not tax policy. In fact it was only through deregulation and tax cuts that the lower and middle class realized their first real income growth in decades. (Pre-pandemic panic of course)
  7. If you agree w SkyDekker’s approach you are no moderate. I think most moderates would consider court packing and confiscatory tax rates to be overreaching.
  8. Sorry, I included moderates in my math and not in my text. Still a > two to one margin of those who would be opposed to the type of shenanigans espoused by SkyDekker.
  9. Actually I would LOVE to see that. With self-identifying conservatives outnumbering self-identifying progressives/liberals by a greater than two to one margin, I would just make some popcorn and wait for the next election. Can you say “shellacking”?
  10. What McConnell did will increase the odds of loosing the Senate and may even cost him his election. Hardly self serving.
  11. I think we can both agree there is plenty of hypocrisy to go around in DC. And it is not a “power grab” it is the constitutional exercise of the power given to them by their constituents. It is no different than the hypocrisy of Obama. He said on several occasions, he did not have the power to unilaterally impose DACA, but then he did. Pelosi also circumvented regular order to shove through Obamacare. Both sides do it, it just hurts more when your side loses.
  12. I know some (many) of you are seeking vengeance for the way Garland was treated, I get it. However it is bad form to take it out on ABC. Your venom should be directed toward Mitch. Go make a donation to Amy McGrath’s campaign.
  13. Bottom line.....rejected Mitch just wanted to save his members from the political blowback from rejecting a qualified, albeit left leaning jurist. The Rs in the Senate were not put there by their voters to shift the balance of the court to the left.
