Mr. President. Being that you like to call out names to those who agree with you on issues; who were the names of the people who were behind you supported your new tax on millionaires and billionaires. What do they do and where do they live? And besides Bill Gates and Warren Buffett, billionaires who support it; is their any others we know who agree to it too? Thats billionaires.

60% of Americans back the plan and here's a dozen billionaires who do as well.

So where is this "poll" that claims that 60% of the American People said they were for the Buffett Rule. Who did it? Where was it taken? In one part of the United States or Nationwide? when was it taken and how were the questions told the people? In person? By mail? By Phone? Where their a equal amount of Democratics? Republicans? Independents? What is the margin of error? Was it done by Fox News? MSNBC? CNN? CATO? Polls you simply cant trust. Some people say that XYZ register voters will vote for ABC canadidate will vote for him/her for President when I feel its likely voters count more. A other example is when the State of the Union address takes place and minutes after it took place Networks will bring out that X amount of people say that State of the Union address was great. CBS one year was at fault in doing it one year that way and found out the News Director took a poll of the staff present and said that the American People were polled and came up with that results when it was a BIG lie. So you agree with the 60% now?

Do you really need a poll to tell you that most people in the US think that millionaires and billionaires should pay the same tax rate as they do?

I didn't dig that deep as I felt pretty stupid looking up the obvious as it was. People who can think for themselves don't need polls. Let me ask you a question Kat. Do you think that most Americans think that millionaires and billionaires should pay a smaller percentage of their income in taxes than the average middle class person?

To a degree yes. But not mounts and mounts of tax layers. We are the only county that punishes us by saving money. Case in point: Taxable income on our tax forms. We pay tax on savings. No tax unemployment insurance or social security. I feel their should be different tax plans. One for singles 10% and married couples that rate is 20% and Business 30% no more no less. Surpose you own: BW Enterprises Inc. you made 4 million last year. Your tax bill is: $1.2 million a year. If your a small business and make $250K still 30% thats 75K. No deductions. Not even union dues., clothing, shoes and even housing. a flat 10% for Singles; 20% Married and 30% for companies.
