hey riccardo......<quoted text>Mr Buttlicker
Not all the polls say that. Who is "ayn ryan"?
So if we are going to tax hard anyone making over 200k why does Obama not mention that and keep saying millionaires? Will making higher taxes on small business 200k be a good thing for the future of that business? Will they have to lay off or hire more part timers? Or since don't make that much like Joe's Landscaping, who cares?
I dont consider returning to clinton era tax rates for wealthy as being a "hard tax" for anyone who earns that kinda loot.
the wealthy DID FINE in the 90's as I remember.
after all, right now,?? the wealthy actaully pay an average of about 16 percent of their income in federal taxes....after their ninja tax lawyers get through with their jobs.....
I agree when you own lots of other assets?? their are all kinds of other taxes incurred........but you own stuff, so you are supposed to be able to pay for it.
so if we return to the billybob rates of the 90's??
the wealthy will actually only be paying about 3% more of their income to the IRS.
but it amounts to hundreds of billions.
mitt/rand proposal to lower taxes AND pay down the deficit??/
while adding two hundred billion dollars to the defense budget AND not compleatlt slashing the crap out of social programs??
is compleat fairy dust math.....
like billy bob himslef said??
it just doesnt add up.
you cannot do all those things, and anyone who believes you can(wthout borrowing it from china as they are so fond of saying on the stump) is a compleat idiot.
math is math....
just like you cannot change the fact that middle class demand is what comprises "markets"
