What is a "Fair Share" - (Niedermeyer's Dead Horse)

I'l admit it right up front. I am not an accountant. Nor, am I an economist or the CEO of a major corporation.

What I am, however, is a citizen who, while tired of rising taxes, does see a distinction between raising taxes and closing loopholes. Yes. Each action seeks to extract more from an individual or an organization via taxation, but the latter seeks to rectify the loopholes which allow one to escape paying an amount relatively equal to what another individual or organization is required to pay.

Now, for the record, so long as the loopholes exist, I say "Go for it!". No laws are being broken by having a skilled accountant or attorney who can take the best advantage of the opportunity but, really.... doesn't this make you squirm just a little?

Sure, the money they don't spend on taxes will be reinvested in the company or in the community but, don't most of you agree that they should pay something?

I've said my piece. I am prepared for the bludgeoning.
