Stay on point. My post was about the lie(s) of Obama. What do you have to say about these lies?
If you want to talk about the "fair share" issue, go read the CBO report published last week, in a nutshell it states:
"The top 40% of wage earners in America are paying 106% of all income taxes. The bottom 40% paid a negative 9%." That means that the "poor" receceived a net gain on income taxes, with an additional average of $25,000 in aid programs.
There's more charitable distribution (which comes from the top income earners), and I'd bet that there's more income and wealth redistribution for the poor in this country than anywhere else in the world.
That's the problem, if you can't blame the black man you have no interest. The result has been we now have no real functioning government with a congress that is 2nd all time in passing the least amount of legislation.#1 was a very, very long time ago when little legislation was need, the #2 congress is way ahead of #3, its also very fitting that they are #2 , if you know what I mean.
The GOOD NEWS is the republicans are now fed up, saying the tea party has lost ALL CREDITABILITY!! That's coming from the majority of real Republicans in Congress. Something that has been obvious for many months and has been predicted here on Topix.
You would be wrong about what you amusingly call wealth redistribution, the rest of the world calls it feeding the poor.
The top 1% pays more tax than any other group is a fact never disputed. They also have 80% of the nations wealth that's growing like a wildfire consuming the middle class, while the rest of the country is going backwards like a muddle slide on the California coast. The important thing you want to overlook is the percentage of income paid in tax, that's what REALLY MATTERS. Most rich in the 1% pay less tax as a percentage of income than the middle class pays, that's all that matters. Most people give to charities when they can, the rich do when they can and always do when it means they can keep more money when using charitable contributions to reduce income. Let them give because they feel the moral need to give like the rest of American does. Of course there are many exceptions like Gates and Buffett, but they are not the norm, no more than you are the norm, thank God for that!!!
