No reason to raise your taxes, sir.

Just send in whatever extra you feel like sending in.

2 Cor 9:7
Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

ALL the questions are staged at 0baMao’s townhalls. They were at Clinton’s too.

If this were any kind of an honest q&a someone should have mentioned that most proffessionals who file jointly with a professional spouse and live in silicon valley are rich by Obamas definition. I bet if you asked them if they want higher taxes added to the cost of living in the bay area that the answer would be no! It’s not a lot of money in this area at all.

The questioner was Doug Edwards of Google. He's donated $300K, all to Dems.

I'm sure it was a coincidence. /s

yea course you can pay more, just write a check and when you get your tax rebate then send it to the Govt.
You know why is the GOP not shutting this issue down by saying if you want to pay more then pay it but don;t force others to have their money taken off them.

Infact the GOP should set up a way for all of these clowns to pay more of their money to the Govt.

Also what a planted question, just like the homosexual saying he is in Iraq, for all we know it could have been an activist setting this up for the pro cross dressing and pro homosexual media

“It seems relevant to point out that this rich liberal is Doug Edwards from the Obama-friendly and regulation-friendly Google.

Edwards has given $300,000 to politicians since 2000 — every single dime to Democrats. He specifically said he wanted his higher taxes to cover Pell Grants.”

funny how a man stands up and says please take more of my money.

Er yea not planted but lets go with it, OK then write a check here right now and send it to the Govt, we will watch as you do it and we will inform the media to tell them what a great swell guy you are.

ARF

GOP call these clowns out and tell them to write a check if they want less of their money

you know I’m struggling right now and not had a vacation for 3 years and even it’;s tough to buy food and clothese for my kids but we do it.
We live in a small house, cars paid off but nothing fancy or new.
Now when I see these dopes giving and asking questions like this then it drives me mad.

If I had this amount of money my money would go to cancer etc I already give to St Judes regardless of not well off we are.
300 grand , bloody ell

Does anyone here know somebody who has donated more money to the government from this site than they already owe? Anyone I know liberal, independent or conservative complains about the amount they pay already. Liberals complain more.

Here’s an idea, why doesn’t this nimrod INVEST the money to create jobs.

If it’s a poor investment, well, he did HIS part to stimulate the economy. If it’s a good investment, he can donate the profit and principal to the government or maybey reinvest to create more jobs.

“...and not had a vacation for 3 years...”

I haven’t taken a vacation in 15 years since I opened my own business. I’m also worth %500,000 more than I was 15 years ago.
