This is why you do away with the IRS and make a flat tax that everyone pays but the millionaires and billionaires cant write their fortunes off and end up paying next to nothing. We dont need the IRS with a flat tax, omit the middleman and the government can save billions a year. it would never get on the floor for voting..just ask your state rep or senator...LOL!

Articles written for both sides of the aisle can be true or false. Lots of information out there can be spun in either direction. We all get our information from the internet,newspapers,radio and TV.
We can only believe what we want to believe. Just because you agree with someone doesnt make it right or wrong and sometimes the real truth really doesnt get told unless you were there to hear it.
There is an objective, empirical reality where things really happen or do not happen. The world isn't simply a compilation of various opinions - facts and reality actually exist.

I agree with that reality, but my agreement isn't what makes it right. It is right whether or not anyone agrees with it.

If you choose to live in a world with no right or wrong and it's all just a matter of opinion, fine. I'll stick with what's real, thanks.

The IRS Mistakenly Exposed Thousands of Social Security Numbers
Another day, another slipup by the Internal Revenue Service.
The incident involves the unwitting exposure of "tens of thousands" of Social Security numbers, according to a recent audit by the independent transparency and public-domain group Public.Resource.org . The identifying numbers were on the Internet for less than 24 hours after being discovered, but the damage was done. And unfortunately, the data-breach concerns some of the most sensitive types of transactions: Those made by nonprofit political groups known as 527s.

So what's the connection between incompetent bureaucrats and Obama's legacy?

Oh wait - this is just more of Legacy's typical BS - blaming the President for everything bad that happens in the world.

Just another opinion blog among thousands you have posted proving once again that you are a mindless robot for your government God.

Both sides are corrupt and the American people have very little faith with them. You on the other hand continually make excuses and flat out lies to protect the nanny state you desire. If Obama says it, its gospel to you.

All your blog had to do was claim a flat tax would hurt the poor and your robotic liberal mind computes it to be bad. Might be time for you to re boot.

The real problem is the top brackets are set too low relative to where the money is. The top-most bracket starts at $375,000 a year. People with incomes higher than that pay 35 percent – again, only on that portion of their incomes exceeding $375,000.

This is absurd. It means a professional who’s making, say,$380,000 a year pays the same income-tax rate as a plutocrat pulling in $2 billion or $20 billion.

Our current flat tax at the top is treating the nation’s professional class exactly the same as it treats super-rich plutocrats. I dont recall any poor politician making ther laws. The rich make the laws to benefit them. Any ass can agree with that

There is a difference between fact and opinion.

It is a fact that the poor will pay more under a flat tax and the rich will pay less. That is a fact.

The opinion is - that's wrong and unfair.

You are lying.

The only time I bring up Bush is when rightwingers blame Obama for things Bush did or when rightwingers feign outrage for Obama doing the same thing Bush did (when they had no trouble with it then).

I'm not bashing Bush. I'm bashing the hypocritical right who can't take responsibility for the disaster their policies caused.

Obama is faulted on leadership
07/09/13
Supporters and critics of President Obama are looking for leadership on many pressing issues from the White House, but many believe they are not getting it.
On Monday, Obama held a Cabinet meeting and spoke about his effort to modernize government databases.
He avoided public remarks on several matters seen as more pressing, such as turmoil in Egypt and the wider Middle East, faltering efforts to reform immigration in the U.S. and the rocky implementation of ObamaCare. Instead the president spoke to a small group of reporters about his efforts to improve databases and make government more efficient.
“We’re working to make huge swaths of your government more transparent and more accountable than ever before,” Obama said at the White House.
Even to the most loyal Obama supporters, the move seemed irrelevant, even odd.

Yes, for some irrational reason the press likes to believe that if the President would just work harder and show more leadership, the GOP would stop being totally obstructionist on everything and begin to actually do their jobs.

Everybody who works in this country pays taxes. Every flat tax proposal I've seen takes more from the working poor and less from the rich. If that's what you want, fine. Just don't call it fair.

Start with $100 million and $20,000.

Then subtract living expenses including housing, food, clothing, heat, transportation, child-care, and payroll taxes.

At the end of the day,$100 million has $99.9 million left and the $20,000 has nothing left.

And you want to take an additional 5% off the top of the working poor? How is that fair?

You don't know anybody that's actually poor, do you?

LOL! You can't actually believe that ALL your federal taxes go to help the poor. Be serious.

For your tax dollars, you get good roads, clean water, clean air, safe medicines, safe food, national security, a good education, a criminal justice system, fire and police protection, safe working conditions, a secure monetary system, safe and effective energy production, free and fair elections, safe air, ship, and rail travel, a strong import/export system, a strong economy, and much, much more.

Taxes are the cost of living in the greatest country on the planet. You get a lot for your money, so why pretend that it's all going to loafers when the facts clearly show otherwise?
