Tax the rich for health care!

FINALLY! I would say tax those families that make over a million a year would probably be enough. Ramp the tax rate up for capital gains to 90 percent to pay for health care!

Let them for once pay their "fair share" for something that the super-majority needs. -- terrie

billion over 10 years, which would cover about half of the
estimated cost of the $1-trillion-plus health care

But it remains unclear if the Senate would approve such an
across-the-board income tax on the wealthy.
