Response to Time for change (Original post)

28. Somewhere the Democratic Party is going to have to make a stand.

Otherwise, they are digging their own grave. How about this for a starter? How about we close all the loopholes so people like Mitt Romney do not hide all their money overseas and only pay 14% on the years they choose to make public? How about we ask these people to pay back some of the booty they acquired in the last 20-30 years? How about a tax rate of about 49% on those incomes in the 1% that do not create jobs. That is almost 97% of all millionaires and billionaires. How about that for a starter?

Also, since we ask working people to pay for their SS and Medicare thru payroll taxes, how about we ask the wealthy to pay for the tax breaks and big defense contracts in a similar manner? Why should SS be asked to pay for their goodies also??
