  1. The incredibly wealthy paying their fair share…wait a minute, this is compassionate conservative libertarian parallel universe…tic, tock, tic, tock…

  2. Other: A 99% reduction of the funding of those Day Care Centers called Schools.

  3. Hate to tell you Angel, but you are incredibly wealthy compared to me.

    Are you willing to pay your fair share?

    And, tickle tickle, when are you going to share your pension?

    Especially if there is anything left over after Madigan gets done spending it all B4 you retire?

  4. I am glad to read sunshine commenters support the concept of progressive tax rates and the very wealthy paying their fair share. You see, rural McHenry county is slowly turning blue. roskam, your days in the US Congress are numbered; something like 410 or so…Go McHenry County Progressives! Tic, tock, tic, tock…

  5. Then, what are we doing with the day care center located at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington, DC 20500? They need extra funding for sure…tic, tock, tic, tock…

  6. I received this survey from Hultgren twice…maybe he didn’t like my first answers?

    I replied on the second one about this but of course he is too important to let us reply, I was instructed I had to go to his web site to communicate with him.

  7. We need an excise tax on millionaires income in the entertainment industry.

    That would include actors, singers, producers, directors from Hollywood as well as sports-entertainment types in baseball, football, hockey and basketball.

  8. bred?

    When Trump gets through cleaning up the pedophiles, I don’t think there will be any of those left!

  9. Liberals are always calling for higher taxes on the rich.


    Let’s do that for multi-multi millionaires and billionaires in the US.

    Higher taxes could be an excise tax and would be put on the likes of the Clintons, George Soros, Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, John Kerry, Pelosis, Oprah Winfrey, Trump, etc, super stars from the sports-entertainment segment and of course the Hollywood actors, singers, directors and producers.

    How much could this excise tax be?

    Let all of those multi-multi millionaires and billionaires who supported Hillary Clinton now step forward and have them pressure the US Congress to tax them way more than they pay now.

    Most ordinary people Democrats who are in the lower and middle income brackets want higher taxes for the ultra very rich.

  10. Bred winner…do you mean Bread Winner?

    Are you saying Trump supported Hillary Clinton?


  11. We need an excise tax on comedian wrestlers residing at the White House…tic, tock, tick, tock…

  12. Mark is literally the best poster on here.


    Hultgren should be told to simplify the tax code, and make it shorter and understandable.
