  1. This “budget” is a big nasty joke. Even if the government took EVERY penny from millionaires (not just taxes, but EVERY penny), our current rate of spending will still be higher than our income.

    Personally, I’m sick of being told I’m not paying “my fair share”. I’m a Social Worker who earns EVERY cent I make. Can anyone please tell me exactly how much my “fair share” should be?

    Shouldn’t every Social Worker being earning big bucks too? Then what’s YOUR “fair share” in taxes?
