    I don't suppose you have a cite for that? Try this one....

    Whatever You May Think of Republicans, Don't Call Them 'Stingy'

    Taken together, the two studies mentioned exist as inconvenient truths for those who equate wealth with a lack of charity and/or overall stinginess. America’s rich are plainly quite generous, and then America’s Republican rich are statistically quite a bit more generous than are Democrats. The latter is particularly inconvenient for a left desperate to paint a picture of “rich” and “Republican” as something that’s indicative of haughty disdain for the poor and unwell.


    You are stubbornly and foolishly increasing your wrong streak!!!

    You're quite good at being wrong. This continues your wrong streak.

    Do you actually have a point?

    How dumb are you? You constantly sabotage your own posts. I can't tell if you are just a moron or a spoof trying to make liberals look bad.

    Hollywood and California are filled to the brim with liberal 1-percenters.

    I don't see Sanders paying off anyone's student loans with his money either.

    It's amazing how rich liberals say that the rich don't ever pay enough in taxes never seem to take advantage of this opportunity and pay what they think is their fair share. Instead they generally seek out every deduction that their lawyers can find so as to pay as little as possible.


    Remember how Warren Buffet famously complained that he was paying a lower rate than his secretary[1]? Aside from obfuscating things by deliberately confusing tax rates on capital gains and income it turned out that Buffet has actually done everything possible to avoid paying taxes that he actually owes.

    For instance, his own company, Berkshire Hathaway[2], is doing everything it can to avoid paying taxes and actually owes nearly a Billion dollars in back taxes dating back to 2002. Another one of his companies was involved in a 14-year fight with the IRS over a dividend-received deduction that was finally settled in 2005. And he is also deeply involved in the purchase of Tim Horton's by Burger King so that the latter can move its offices to Canada in order to pay far less in taxes.

    Liberals are increasingly notorious for showing their generosity by giving away other people's money while holding tightly on to their own. And if they're a politician they cheerfully raise tax rates never intending to pay them (see Charlie Rangel, Tom Daschle and Timothy Geithner as a short list of examples).







    1. It should be noted that his secretary's salary put her well into the one percenters herself.

    2. Which Buffet is the principle shareholder (32.4%) of as well as its chairman, president and CEO.

    it's talking about the 1%, the people, as one of the characters says, who pays for everything. Sounds more like the CONSERVATIVE whine to me.

    There is nothing wrong with complaining about the 1% when you are in that category yourself. Actually it's rather admirable, and most of them that do, like Michael Moore, tend to be Liberals.
    Name one that has volunteered their wealth to be redistributed in such a way that they are no longer a member of the 1%?
