I love the bad rep I'm getting for my post. And conpeople are the reason our country is in a recession. People want to live off welfare. I'm sorry that some people make alot of money. This is no reason they should get taxed to hell while the poor people get all of their money back. Your right the lower class people make up a huge portion of the us. So why tax the small percentage to make up for the whole. Hell, a 10-15% tax would make more money for the government than it makes now.
I have nothing against people who are trying to get to the top, or got a stroke of bad luck. But when people want obama to get in the oval office because he will up taxes to the rich, so they can live off wellfare and foodstamps I do have a problem.
I'd love to see some more bad rep come my way for speaking an OPINION. You can have yours and I don't to the same thing to you.
No wonder we have Obama supporters in here. All you people want to do is hate on other people and do NOTHING! Obama will do NOTHING. Okay maybe try to bring home troops from Iraq. I'm sorry we have had 4500+deaths. What did you think you were signing up for when you sign up for the militay. That many deaths over the number of years is something we should be thankful for. I have the utmost respect for anyone willing to go fight for their country when haters like you want to go bashing on the us when that is what they are RISKING THEIR LIFE TO FIGHT FOR.
From an email I received:
IRS agent's observations
After watching the democratic debate the other day in Vegas, I literally wanted to puke. For the most part, all of them bashed Bush over and over again on how he is out for his millionaire friends and the big oil companies and he has totally forgotten or disregarded the little guy. So being an ex-IRS employee, I decided to look back on the tax tables to see if there is any truth to what they said and the media keeps stating as fact, "Bush is only out for the rich in this country.
Based on using the actual tax tables (see link below), here are some examples on what the taxes were/are on various amounts of income for both singles and married couples. so let's see if the Bush tax cuts only helped the rich.
Taxes under Clinton 1999 Taxes under Bush 2008
Single making 30K - tax $8,400 Single making 30K - tax $4,500
Single making 50K - tax $14,000 Single making 50K - tax $12,500
Single making 75K - tax $23,250 Single making 75K - tax $18,7 50
Married making 60K - tax $16,800 Married making 60K - tax $9,000
Married making 75K - tax $21,000 Married making 75K - tax $18,750
Married making 125K - tax $38,750 Married making 125K - tax $31,250
If you want to know just how effective the mainstream media is, it is amazing how many people that fall into the categories above think Bush is screwing them and Bill Clinton was the greatest President ever. If any democrat is elected, ALL of them say they will repeal the Bush tax cuts and a good portion of the people that fall into the categories above can't wait for it to happen. This is like the movie The Sting with Paul Newman, you scam somebody out of some money and they don't even k now what happened. Now this is effective (maybe not honest) marketing or maybe a better word is brain washing.
