  • Who would want them raised? Of course not. But I see a tax increase ahead no matter who's elected.

  • Yes! It's a necessary price to pay for living in a society that provides so much for us. I know that right now there is a lot lacking there. Health care is totally inadequate, public schools, the bail-out, etc.. But that is a result of bad government and it doesn't change the fact that taxes keep our country running. Don't overlook law enforcement, fire fighters, roads, traffic lights, medicare, the military, the fact that we have public schools at all!
    I don't want my taxes to go towards bailing out rich bankers or funding an unnecessary war but I accept that there will be a tax increase and eventually things will get better. They always have.

  • No. I don't want my taxes raised. We pay plenty as it is. What I want is for the government to be more responsible with the tax money. No pork spending. Balance the budget. Work within their means, and prioritize their choices. There's enough money to do everything the government needs to do, if they would be wise and fiscally responsible about their spending.

  • I am willing to pay more in my local taxes for issues that are important to my community(school, police, etc). I do not want to higher taxes for Federal Govt spending...
