Proven unsustainable without a VAT attached to products. Every Accounting 101 newbie knows this. Our system is more progressive than Europe's due to income taxation, without a VAT added.

Dummy!
We should have explored Herman Cain's 9/9/9 tax, or some combination thereof.

I think a 9% sales tax is high, but it would hurt crony corruptocrats like harry pelosi when they spend their bribe money.

I'm not a huge fan of a progressive tax either.

GE spends more money on tax planning than their tax liability . A flat tax ends that liberal stupidity.

Our govt. and it's cost is completely out of control, and must be reduced in size and scope.

Cain's 999 tax was explored, and proved to be unrealistic, in case you missed that one.

"I made an impressive $27,500.00 dollars last year... ballin! The following calculation will be fairly simple, since I am a single taxpayer with no kids.(Aww ... that last line made my mom cry. I will get married, mom, and make some grandkids, I promise.) Well, onto the math.

Income tax for year 2010:

I had to take away $5,700 for a standard deduction (probably socialism) and $3,650 as a personal exception because I'm single and haven't kissed a girl in months, a payroll tax credit of $400.00, a general sales tax deduction of $1,644.00, opportunity credit deduction of $2,500.00, and a relocation deduction of $4,250.00 which left me with $9,356.00 in taxable income... still ballin.

Since we have marginal tax rates I was then charged...

$8,375 × 10%=$837.50, this left me with $981.00 to be taxed in the next margin -- still marginally ballin!

$981.00 x 15%=$147.15

This left me with $26,515.35 after income taxes ... damn, I sure did make it rain last year, what's up ladies.

Wait, we aren't done yet. I had to pay FICA, which is the sum of the Medicare and Social Security Tax.(Yuck, why did I have to help other Americans!)

$27,500 x 5.65%=$1,553.75

So in total I paid 9.23% in taxes or $2,538.40

This left me with $24,961.40 to buy Che Geuvara t-shirts, Al Franken books, and Cat Stevens CDs.

Of this take home pay I dropped $20,000 on maintaining a modest standard of living. I live in a small one-bedroom apartment, without a television, I steal internet from my neighbors, and I have no wife or kids to spend money on -- so other than the fridge I fill and my Match.com account, I exercise impressive fiscal responsibility.

I paid a 6% sales tax on the aforementioned $20,000 which came to $1,200.00. So last year I paid $3,738.40 in taxes.

Under Herman Cain's plan all deductions would be eliminated and I would pay a 9% income tax:

$27,500 x 9%=$2,475.00

And Cain would increase my sales tax from 6% to a 9% sales tax:

$20,000 x 9%=$1,800.00

So I would have paid a total of $4,275.00 in taxes last year which is a smidge more than the $3,738.40 dollars I paid under the current system. The difference is incremental, but for me and the rest of the 90% of Americans who make an average of $31,244 per year, that incremental difference is quite substantial. "

The math has proven those on the middle and lower bracket would end up paying much more.

And you claim to be an accountant??? GTF outta here!

President Obama did not attend the funeral of his late aunt Zeituni Onyango. Instead, he went golfing.
The New York Times reports:
After Zeituni Onyango, the woman President Obama once called Auntie, died in a South Boston nursing home this month, her closest relatives gathered her belongings at her nearby apartment. There, framed photographs of her with the president covered the wall.
Weeping before a polished wood coffin at her wake this past Saturday, they described Ms. Onyango, the half sister of the president’s father, as “the spirit of the Obama family” and talked about raising money to send her body back to Kenya. Mr. Obama helped pay funeral expenses and sent a condolence note, Ms. Onyango’s family members said, but the president did not attend, as he was golfing.
Fore!
If I remember correctly, he didn't attend his white grandmothers funeral either. Never sent his half-brother living in a hut ten bucks. And people think this is the guy that cares about their healthcare?

Hi! I've made a blog discussing the ignorance of people when it comes to racism, religious tolerance, and sexual orientation. My goal is to fight the cultural ignoramuses that fuel discrimination by educating the public about the importance of diversity. I hope you guys can check it out and give me feedback! Here's a link to a commercial I made:

How would the flat tax effect you, you told us you have paid millions of dollars in taxes?

When you are using imaginary money, is there really any difference?

No, Saddam moved them all to other countries before G.W.B. went in to get them. All the allied nations and even the Democrats agreed that he had them. It seems your liberal progressive forgetful mind has just let all that information slip your feeble mind. So typical of your kind.
