What difference does it make? Surely a conservative Republican would group all tax burdens together and consider them significant. Besides, these taxes are in addition to income taxes.
The point is that it's silly and meaningless to single out one specific tax as the only "important" tax and ignore the others.

So if your contesting the number you obviously have statistics which state otherwise. Oh ... wait .... would this be more of your opinion presented as fact. Not surprising.

Since you still appear to have reading comprehension issues. I stated that they were the primary recipients not that they were all recipients.

Just admit it you are dumber than we think.

bushie boy's greatest achievement was getting the US in there with no idea how to get out.

"A woman who says she was raped as a 12-year-old girl by an Arkansas man who was defended by a young novice defense attorney named Hillary Clinton says the future presidential candidate smeared her to get her attacker off with a light sentence."
the now 52-year-old woman, whose name was withheld by the publication out of concern for her privacy, said she still harbors anger toward Clinton.
“Hillary Clinton took me through Hell,” the victim said.
Hillary is loved by Democrats - they love liars.
Democrats also love men who drown their dates. Ted Kennedy was the Lion of the Senate.

Imagine if a Republican drove off a bridge and killed the woman he was having an affair with, who then drove home, changed, took a nap and forgot to report it until the next day.

But the media made sure we knew what Romney ate for breakfast in Junior High and that 30 years ago he drove with his dog was in a crate on the roof of the car. All the important things.

Except that FIT is what funds, welfare, SNAP, heating assistance, and many other social freebie programs, which are taken advantage of by those who do not contribute. So yeah in the eyes of the tax payer (those who actually pay it) that tax is important. Those who take advantage of these programs most likely see no issue with the fact that they play no part in funding them.

You're running from the question. If I'm a loser and I'm doing fantastic with no complaints, what is it that makes you a winner if you're here until 4 P.M. everyday whining and complaining about how Obama is making your life miserable?

The fool's been busy vacationing, golfing and campaigning--nothing new there.

Yes, it is true that there was no Al Qaeda in Iraq when George W. Bush took office. But it is equally true that there was essentially no Al Qaeda in Iraq remaining when Barack Obama took office.

Which makes Bush responsible for the terrible costs incurred to defeat the 2003-09 jihadist war engendered by his invasion. We can debate forever whether those costs were worth it, but what is not debatable is Obama’s responsibility for the return of the Islamist insurgency that had been routed by the time he became President.

By 2009, Al Qaeda in Iraq had not just been decimated but humiliated by the American surge and the Anbar Awakening. Here were aggrieved Sunnis, having ferociously fought the Americans who had overthrown 80 years of Sunni hegemony, now reversing allegiance and joining the infidel invader in crushing, indeed extirpating from Iraq, their fellow Sunnis of Al Qaeda.

At the same time, Shiite Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki turned the Iraqi army against radical Shiite militias from Basra all the way north to Baghdad.

The result?“A sovereign, stable and self-reliant Iraq.” That’s not Bush congratulating himself. That’s Obama in December 2011 describing the Iraq we were leaving behind. He called it “an extraordinary achievement.”

Which Obama proceeded to throw away. David Petraeus had won the war. Obama’s one task was to conclude a status-of-forces agreement (SOFA) to solidify the gains. By Obama’s own admission — in the case he’s now making for a status-of-forces agreement with Afghanistan — such agreements are necessary “because after all the sacrifices we’ve made, we want to preserve the gains” achieved by war.
