<quoted text>According to official IRS data, the top 1% of income earners paid $84 billion more in federal income taxes in 2007 than in 2000 before the Bush tax cuts were passed, 23% more. The share of total federal income taxes paid by the top 1% rose from 37% in 2000, before the Bush tax cuts, to 40% in 2007, after the tax cuts.
In contrast, the bottom half of income earners paid $6 billion less in federal income taxes in 2007 than in 2000, a decline of 16%. The share of federal income taxes paid by the bottom 50% declined from 3.9% in 2000 to 2.9% in 2007.
The Bush tax cuts also included a doubling of the child tax credit from $500 per child to $1,000 per child. Because of that, and the 33% cut in the bottom tax rate, nearly 8 million more people dropped off the federal income tax rolls entirely, paying zero federal income taxes. Indeed, under the Bush tax cuts, the bottom 40% of all income earners not only paid no federal income taxes, as a group on net. By 2009, they were being paid cash by the IRS equal to 10% of all federal income taxes.
These Bush tax cuts did not explode the deficit, as Obama and his echo chamber have alleged. By 2007, the deficit was down to $160 billion, less than 15% of Obama’s deficits today. Total federal revenues soared from $793.7 billion in 2003, when the last of the Bush tax cuts were enacted, to $1.16 trillion in 2007, a 47% increase. Capital gains revenues had doubled by 2005, despite the 25% capital gains rate cut adopted in 2003. Federal revenues rose to 18.5% of GDP by 2007, above the long term, postwar, historical average over the prior 60 years. CBO was projecting surpluses to return indefinitely in 2012 through the end of its projection period in 2018.

nice to know that the Constitution promotes socialism.
now that would put a smile on Reagan's face.
Gun Control.... Myths, Lies and downright stupidity!

On 20/20, ABC anchor John Stossel discussed the self-defensive benefits of gun ownership, debunking the myth that "gun control reduces crime."
The segment aired during 20/20's recurring series, "Myths, Lies & Downright Stupidity," based on Stossel's book of the same title.
Citing the recent Federal Appeals Court for DC ruling overturning Washington, D.C.'s ban on gun ownership, Stossel talked to the pro-gun plaintiff
in the case, Tom Palmer, and pointed out that the murder rate in D.C. increased after the city's gun ban:
"Since Washington's gun law passed, the murder rate actually increased, even while America's murder rate dropped.
It's because guns can also save lives, says Palmer, as one saved his years ago in California."

Great Video!!!

In response to the Occupy Wall Street protests, some leading conservatives have begun referring to themselves as "the 53 percent"--a reference to their view that the 47 percent of mostly lower-income Americans who don't pay income taxes are getting an undeserved break. Conservatives also argued against closing tax loopholes for the richest Americans and for corporations.

Which is why it's interesting to see President Ronald Reagan, a conservative icon, laud the passage of the 1986 Tax Reform Act--whose 25th anniversary is this week--by declaring that under the new law, "millions of the working poor will be dropped from the tax rolls altogether" and that rich people and big corporations would "pay their fair share."

http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/lookout/reagan-la...

you can't be a present day conservative without being a hypocrite.

and they wonder why they lost the election?

1 Only in America could the rich people – who pay 86% of all income taxes – be accused of not paying their “fair share” by people who don’t pay any income taxes at all.
2 Only in America could people claim that the government still discriminates against black Americans when they have a black President, a black Attorney General, and roughly 18% of the federal workforce is black while only 12% of the population is black
3 Only in America could they have had the two people most responsible for our tax code, Timothy Geithner, the head of the Treasury Department and Charles Rangel who once ran the Ways and Means Committee, BOTH turn out to be tax cheats who are in favor of higher taxes.
4 Only in America can they have terrorists kill people in the name of Allah and have the media primarily react by fretting that Muslims might be harmed by the backlash.
5 Only in America would they make people who want to legally become American citizens wait for years in their home countries and pay tens of thousands of dollars for the privilege while we discuss letting anyone who sneaks into the country illegally just ‘magically’ become American citizens.
6 Only in America could the people who believe in balancing the budget and sticking by the country’s Constitution be thought of as “extremists.”
7 Only in America could you need to present a driver’s license to cash a check or buy alcohol, but not to vote.
8 Only in America could people demand the government investigate whether oil companies are gouging the public because the price of gas went up when the return on equity invested in a major U.S. oil company (Marathon Oil) is less than half of a company making tennis shoes (Nike).
9 Only in America could the government collect more tax dollars from the people than any nation in recorded history, still spend a Trillion dollars more than it has per year – for total spending of $7-Million PER MINUTE, and complain that it doesn’t have nearly enough money.
10 Only in America could politicians talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000.00 a plate campaign fund-raising event.
Only in America could those who consistently make bad decisions consider be regarded as victims. Historically speaking or presently in third world countries, they'd have starved to death. Here they have air conditioning, cable and are usually obese.
