Why do conservatives oppose higher taxes for Americans?

You Americans are so rich, you can afford to have less take home pay and a lower standard of living.

    The Democrats want to reach deep into your pockets and give your hard-earned money to people who don’t deserve it.

    The treasury already steals more than it needs to accomplish it few and enumerated duties. If there isn't enough money to accomplish those few things, start eliminating some of the unconstitutional pandering and vote buying, communist programs and agencies like the communist welfare state programs, interference in health care, education, and housing, foreign aid absent a treaty requiring FULL accountability for every penny, bailing out failing companies, paying any kind of "subsidies", kissing the ***** of criminal migrants. LIMIT the federal government to its FEW and ENUMERATED responsibilities and there will be enough money to CUT taxes by more than 60%.

    Why do libs oppose cutting the unconstitutional pandering of the federal government?

      HNizzles, name the ONE socialist program mentioned in the Constitution. "Education", "health care", "housing", "subsidizing failing businesses" and the Communist welfare state programs are NOT mentioned. Read Article 1, Section 8 for the complete list of what is enumerated.

      People do work, yet massive medical fees bankrupt them despite them working 2 or 3 jobs.

    what we should do to make things equal is stop ALL INCOME TAX. to away with it.. then charge a 20% over the board SALES/USE tax on everything which is not essential like food. Example.. you buy or lease a $50 thousand vehicle you pay 20 percent taxes to the gov. you rent or buy a $1,000. dollar vehicle you pay a flat 20 percent,, you buy a 5 million dollar house 20 percent tax goes to the gov, you buy a 20,000 house 20 percent etc.. That way People who have the most money and spend the most pays their fair share of taxes... Poor people who spend less would be paying the same percentage but sense they spend less their taxes would be less.. yo buy a $00 dollar TV you pay 20 percent.. you buy a $100 tv y still pay 20 percent... THAT WOULD BE A TRUE FAIR ACROSS THE BOARD TAX RATE..

      Have you not noticed that that we already pay 10% at least on all things that we buy.
