You might have noticed TAXES paid to State and City also if you ever owned property or an automobile, if you ever bought anything with earned wages you might notice the TAXES WORKING CLASS AMERICANS must pay!
The same taxes Dimocrats use for the big REDISTRIBUTION plan!
The tax code is over 70,000 pages because BOTH parties benefit their corporate masters.

That is why Ariston has to get stuck paying the bill.

Perfectly Legal: The Covert Campaign to Rig our Tax System to Benefit the Super Rich- and Cheat Everyone Else
http://tinyurl.com/ydf6r6 / April 18, 2004
One of the country's top investigative reporters reveals how the richest people within the top 1 percent of the country has rigged the tax code and other laws in its favor.
Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter David Cay Johnston has been breaking pieces of this story on the front page of The New York Times for nine years, work for which one business school professor calls him ìthe de facto chief tax enforcement officer of the United Statesî. With Perfectly Legal, he puts the whole shocking narrative together in a way that will stir up media attention and make readers angry about the state of our country. And he has sound advice on what to do.

When you die any property and or investment/savings you leave behind are taxed as much as %50! Why the #@ck must we be taxed even after we DIE?
F@CK YOU! YOU SIMPLE minded Bastard!

The New Corporate World Order
Apr 19, 2011 / http://tinyurl.com/3eker4w
The debate over Republicans’ insistence on continued tax breaks for the superrich and the corporations they run should come to a screeching halt with the report in Tuesday’s Wall Street Journal headlined “Big U.S. Firms Shift Hiring Abroad.” Those tax breaks over the past decade, leaving some corporations such as General Electric to pay no taxes at all, were supposed to lead to job creation, but just the opposite has occurred. As the WSJ put it, the multinational companies “cut their work forces in the U.S. by 2.9 million during the 2000s while increasing employment overseas by 2.4 million, new data from the U.S. Commerce Department show.”

Bernie Sanders Calls Out CEO Tax Dodgers over Deficit, Hypocrisy
'The last thing we need to do is listen to these deficit increasing CEOs'
October 25, 2012 /
Senator Bernie Sanders called out a group of the top US CEOs Thursday in a new report revealing top corporate tax dodgers in the US and urged those dodgers to 'look in the mirror' for the causes of America's ballooning deficit. The report followed a joint statement issued Thursday morning by the top 80 US CEOs, pleading to Congress for a deficit reduction plan that would include cuts to Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid, and a decrease in taxes "for the top 2%.
The report Top Corporate Tax Dodgers (pdf) outlines individual CEO income and tax information, exploring the vast amounts of tax avoidance from the members of the group who today urged congress to avoid the 'fiscal cliff' budget, through their telling new plan.
Sanders reveals how many of the CEOs who issued the statement have evaded at least $34.5 billion in taxes through more than 600 subsidiaries in the Cayman Islands and other offshore tax havens since 2008. Roughly a dozen of their companies did not pay federal income taxes at all in recent years and some received an additional $6.4 billion in tax refunds from the IRS since 2008. Many of the companies were among those who received the $2.5 trillion from the Federal Reserve following the banking industry induced financial crisis.

AGAIN WRONG!
The IRS places an automatic lien against your estate for any estate taxes that may be due. If your will leaves no specific provision about how these taxes are to be paid, state law generally controls how the burden of paying the taxes will be distributed among your beneficiaries. As a result, your beneficiaries may end up paying taxes out of their own pockets or selling some of the property that you left to them to meet this obligation.
Most state apportionment statutes impose the tax payment liability only on those assets that contributed to the tax imposed. Thus, your spouse will not be responsible for any taxes if he or she received all your property free of tax under the unlimited marital deduction. Likewise, charities that received property free of tax under the charitable deduction will not have to carry any of the tax burden.
In addition, most state apportionment acts divide up the tax burden on a prorated basis. For example, if your taxable estate was evenly split between two beneficiaries, each beneficiary would be responsible for 50 percent (one-half) of the taxes due. Beneficiaries who received the taxable portion of your estate must pay their share of the taxes owed when they are due--generally nine months from the date of your death. They may have to sell their inheritances to get the cash. If their inheritances are already spent, however, they still must pay the taxes, and the IRS can go after any of their other assets to satisfy the lien.

No Republican administration has balanced a budget since Eisenhower in 1957.

Dwight Eisenhower was last Republican President to preside over a balanced budget. He had a balanced budget in 1956 and 1957. Since then, there have been two presidents to preside over balanced budgets, LBJ in 1969 and Clinton in 1998 through 2001. During the last 40 years there have been five budget surpluses, all five were under Democratic Presidents: 1969, 1998, 1999, 2000, and 2001.

Analysis: Banks Play Shell Game with Taxpayer Dollars
Statement by Senator Bernie Sanders
BURLINGTON, VT - A study requested by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) found numerous instances during the financial crisis of 2008 and 2009 when banks took near zero-interest funds from the Federal Reserve and then loaned money back to the federal government on sweetheart terms for the banks.
The banks pocketed interest on government securities that paid rates up to 12 times greater than the Fed’s rock bottom interest charges, according to a Congressional Research Service analysis conducted for Sanders.
“This report confirms that ultra-low interest loans provided by the Federal Reserve during the financial crisis turned out to be direct corporate welfare to big banks,” Sanders said.“Instead of using the Fed loans to reinvest in the economy, some of the largest financial institutions in this country appear to have lent this money back to the federal government at a higher rate of interest by purchasing U.S. government securities.”

You would guess wrong.

You and I both know the whole system is corrupt and both Republicans and Democrats like it that way.

Fox News and MSNBC are both corporate hack talking air heads loyal to these two corrupt parties.

Most Republicans are conservative in name only.

Most Democrats are liberal in name only.

Obamacare is not a liberal health plan which would have provided Single Payer, Medicare For All.

Obamacare is more accurately Romneycare which was endorsed by Bob Dole and the Heritage Foundation back in the 1990s.

Obama/Clinton, Bush/Cheney John Kerry, John McCain, et cetera are all corporate hacks loyal to Wall Street.

They have to divide and conquer our ignorant masses.

Are they "paying for them"? We wouldn't know because our country has not passed a budget in 3 years. You can thank Harry Reid and Obama for that. Harry makes sure Obama has a blank check without budget restraints so he can fund the Muslim Brotherhood in the Middle East. How many billions did the MB get last year from Obama and the dems? Don't know do ya? No budget...no accountability for the spending of OUR tax dollars.

I'd like to thank you. I know everybody makes fun of you and ridicules your posts all the time (you have to admit tho your posts are ridiculous)but you do provide a service. You open up a dialog because of your stupidity. You post something that is so over the top stupid it opens the door for the intelligent posters to put you in your place and educate your butt buddies at the same time. So thanks, wtf. Your purpose here is to show the rest of us what we pray we will never be. And thank God our prayers are answered every day.

To appreciate how the kabuki theater works, consider three big outcomes of the fiscal cliff legislation that the attendant reality TV show never highlighted:
1. Bush defeats Clinton: President Clinton’s tax rates delivered big budget surpluses and one of history’s strongest rates of economic growth. By contrast, President Bush’s cuts to those tax rates birthed massive deficits and the slowest rate of economic growth in modern history. Yet, faced with the fiscal cliff’s choice between Clinton and Bush tax rates, both parties agreed to ratify almost all of the latter.
For Republicans, this victory was summed up by Bush’s former spokesman, Ari Fleischer, who said simply,“it’s fantastic.” For Democrats, their triumphant rhetoric about their one small win - restoring Clinton rates on income above $400,000 - obscures a humiliating truth. Essentially, the party that spent so much political capital to modestly raise taxes and restore fiscal sanity after the Reagan binge was bullied into undoing much of its own fiscal legacy.
2. Nobody in Washington cares about deficits: During December’s “fiscal cliff” TV show, D.C.‘s reality stars told us that they were focused on reducing the budget deficit. But, according to the Congressional Budget Office, the final bill will increase the budget deficit by $4 trillion.
3. Corporate welfare is sacrosanct: For all the effort to make wasteful spending the villain in the “fiscal cliff” TV show, Congress ultimately refused to touch that spending. Somehow, defense contractor largesse in the bloated Pentagon budget was off the table. Somehow, subsidies to corporate agribusiness were separated from the negotiations and then extended. Meanwhile, as the Roosevelt Institution’s Matt Stoller documented, the final “fiscal cliff” bill included taxpayer handouts for everything from NASCAR racetracks, to Hollywood studios, to a new Goldman Sachs headquarters.

Are they "paying for them"? We wouldn't know because our country has not passed a budget in 3 years. You can thank Harry Reid and Obama for that. Harry makes sure Obama has a blank check without budget restraints so he can fund the Muslim Brotherhood in the Middle East. How many billions did the MB get last year from Obama and the dems? Don't know do ya? No budget...no accountability for the spending of OUR tax dollars.
I'd like to thank you. I know everybody makes fun of you and ridicules your posts all the time (you have to admit tho your posts are ridiculous)but you do provide a service. You open up a dialog because of your stupidity. You post something that is so over the top stupid it opens the door for the intelligent posters to put you in your place and educate your butt buddies at the same time. So thanks, wtf. Your purpose here is to show the rest of us what we pray we will never be. And thank God our prayers are answered every day.
No Republican administration has balanced a budget since Eisenhower in 1957.

Dwight Eisenhower was last Republican President to preside over a balanced budget. He had a balanced budget in 1956 and 1957. Since then, there have been two presidents to preside over balanced budgets, LBJ in 1969 and Clinton in 1998 through 2001. During the last 40 years there have been five budget surpluses, all five were under Democratic Presidents: 1969, 1998, 1999, 2000, and 2001.

You would guess wrong.
You and I both know the whole system is corrupt and both Republicans and Democrats like it that way.
Fox News and MSNBC are both corporate hack talking air heads loyal to these two corrupt parties.
Most Republicans are conservative in name only.
Most Democrats are liberal in name only.
Obamacare is not a liberal health plan which would have provided Single Payer, Medicare For All.
Obamacare is more accurately Romneycare which was endorsed by Bob Dole and the Heritage Foundation back in the 1990s.
Obama/Clinton, Bush/Cheney John Kerry, John McCain, et cetera are all corporate hacks loyal to Wall Street.
They have to divide and conquer our ignorant masses.

Update yourself fool! Research Romneycare before you just repeat what you were told to say. Check out the bills that were just introduced in the last week that is touting the public option as a way to reduce the deficit by democrats. The same damn liars that said Obamacare would cost tax payers x amount of dollars and the CBO acknowledged that Obamacare will actually cost the tax payer xxx amount of dollars. Obama told the democrats that he would put the public option into the Affordable Care Act AFTER the bill became law. Guess what the dems in Congress are working on now? Yep! Obamacare has always been geared toward a single pay system with all monies from corporations and businesses and citizens going to guess who? The government.

At least read an article or two about what the politicians are doing before you repeat the propaganda they instructed you to repeat for them. Oh wait...you are helping them make good use of the "gun" crisis in our country so they can vote the public option into law as planned and we the people will wonder when they did that. Rahm Emanual said "never let a good crisis go to waste" and Obama and the dems follow that advice religiously.

If you ever hope to be seen as credible please start doing your own homework and stop repeating democrat talking points. You are wasting a good crisis and your gods will not like that.

Hate to poop on your rainbow parade Oprah but our country has not had a surplus in 54 years. I know the democrats have convinced you that Clinton had a surplus so you morons would accept that falsity and repeat it until the dumb ass masses believed it but if you had half a brain cell you could do the math and would see you are a dumb ass. lol The deficit has to decrease in order to have a surplus. The last time that happened in our country was 54 years ago. Was Clinton president 54 years ago? Well, I'm sure you can be convinced that he was, so never mind, dummy.

Has it ever occurred to you to actually think for yourself and reason with yourself about articles you read? You read them and because some moron on the internet told you it's true you just go with it. Educate YOURSELF fool!

I know for a fact the corrupt corporate Democratic party sold ME out a long time ago.

The same is true of the corrupt corporate Republican party sold YOU out a long time ago.

The only difference is you still believe the Republican party makes laws that benefit you.

THEY DONT!

AT&T Whistleblower: Spy Bill Creates 'Infrastructure for a Police State'
Mark Klein, the retired AT&T engineer who stepped forward with the technical documents at the heart of the anti-wiretapping case against AT&T, is furious at the Senate's vote on Wednesday night to hold a vote on a bill intended to put an end to that lawsuit and more than 30 others.

Whistleblower Mark Klein
Mark Klein alleges that AT&T cooperated with the National Security Agency in 2003 to install equipment capable of eavesdropping on the public's e-mail messages and other Internet traffic. He worked for AT&T as a technician for over 22 years, first in New York and then in California, before leaving the company in 2004

A Reason interview with NSA whistleblower Russell Tice
http://tinyurl.com/2jtgsc / January 13, 2006

In December, New York Times reporters James Risen and Eric Lichtblau commandeered the news cycle with the revelation that President Bush had approved a program of warrantless wiretaps of domestic-to-international communications by the super-secretive National Security Agency. Days later, they disclosed that the NSA's electronic eavesdropping may have been far more extensive than initial reports suggested, involving the harvesting of enormous volumes of telecommunications data for analysis.
One of their sources was former NSA insider Russell Tice, who earlier this week told ABC News that the communications of millions of Americans might have been vacuumed up in one of a number of classified NSA programs. "If you picked the word 'jihad' out of a conversation," Tice explained, "the technology exists that you focus in on that conversation, and you pull it out of the system for processing."
