Why do Republicans expect the middle class, working Americans, small business,?
the poor to pay taxes but give the wealthy and large corporations that pay little or no taxes a free ride? Why do Republicans think corporations and the wealthy deserve tax breaks that they would never dream of giving people who do real work everyday?

Corporations pay far more in taxes than small businesses or anyone in the middle class. Except GE, that is.

Left wing talking points. Fifty per cent of the population do not even pay taxes. Over 50% of the people get shit for free from our great government. Everyone should be paying taxes.

I'm a Republican who believes we should ALL pay the same percentage of our gross income in taxes. ALL of us. ALL companies. ALL people. No loopholes. No deductions. No 51% of Americans who don't pay income taxes. Pick a percentage and make us ALL pay it. You cannot get more fair than that.

Because they are the wealthy and they are the party of fiscal irresponsibility(~10 trillion of the debt is either directly attributed to one of three republican presidents, or is the interest incurring during their reign as president)

Seriously, do liberals try to make themselves look as stupid as possible with every post? The poor don't pay any income taxes. None. Zip. Nada. And the rich pay the highest tax rates. Are all liberals really this stupid?
