Look at all of your back peddling. First you say that the poor pay a higher percent of their income in taxes and that was false. Then you said they have no money which is also false and contradictory. You then follow up with saying they had no money after they paid taxes, which is again false and doesn’t change that they pay a lower percent of their income in taxes. Now you are again saying they have no money and are saying that the IRS numbers are being misinterpreted? What part of taxes paid vs. income is being misinterpreted by the Tax Foundation or CBPP (since you made that claim)? Do you think that you know better than the CBO as well? Lastly you are calling the FACT that the poor average a lower percent of their income in local, state, and all Federal taxes then the rich an opinion.

P.S. You have been discredited because of your own statements and refusal to back them up.

OK, this should not have come as any big surprise, you cannot spend, spend, spend, without, at somepoint having to actually have the revenue to do so. The US should learn from this (but it won't) and change course immediately to prevent another deeper and longer lasting recession. Again, with the current 'Leadership/" in DC, I sincerely doubt this will happen, and in 2014 and again in 2016, the country will either elect responsible, financially savey congress/senators, or it will follow Europe into ruin

The richest man in France just filed for Belgian citizenship, and the rest of the wealthy are leaving the country in droves. Canada said it will welcome European millionaires as well.
The US should take a lesson from Europe on what NOT to do, with tax as well as immigration policy.
I've been noticing magazines on where to take your money and retire in tax friendly countries, in the homes of some of my wealthier friends!

It is true that 47 percent of Americans did not pay net federal income taxes in 2009 — the number is unusually high because of the depression in incomes following the recession — but it is completely false that only 53 percent of Americans pay taxes.

For example, if you look at state and local taxes, the working poor actually pay a higher percentage of their income in these taxes in every state except for Vermont. In “Alabama, for example, low-income families (which make less than $13,000) pay 11 percent of their income in state and local taxes, while those making more than $229,000 pay just 4 percent.”

And it is worth noting that Americans who are too poor to be asked to pay net federal income taxes are not a good target for those complaining that some aren’t paying their fair share. If there’s one group of Americans that is paying less and less as the median American family is asked to pay more, it’s the super-wealthy. The top 400 taxpayers — who have more wealth than half of all Americans combined — are paying lower taxes than they have in a generation, as their tax responsibilities have slowly collapsed since the New Deal era as working families have been asked to pay more and more:

Rather than taking aim at some of the poorest members of our society — 62 percent of whom have incomes under $20,000 — Americans should be asking how we can get the super-wealthy to pay tax rates closer to their modern historical average and how we can lift up the incomes of those who are too impoverished to be asked to pay federal income taxes.

Seems you dishonestly defended this lie, trollop...

This year, PolitiFact has singled out Mitt Romney's campaign ad that made an untrue claim about President Barack Obama, Chrysler, and jobs building Jeeps being sent to China. "It was a lie," says PolitiFact, "told in the critical state of Ohio in the final days of a close campaign."

So all the untrue attack ads on Romney were ok? You know the Steel worker from US Steel who was offered a buyout and he took it. And 4 years later his wife died of cancer. And that was Romney's fault?

"Honor, Integrity, Decency, and Morality" died within the Democrat Party in the Oval Orifice when Willy Cigar Clinton got a BJ from a Child Employee of his that he used his "Position of Authority" to manipulate her, and the Womyn of the Feminist Bureau of the Apparatus attacked all the other Women he used his position to abuse all of his political life.

If it wasn't for the Feminists supporting the Cigar Inserter abusing Womyn, The Democrat Party may have had a Moral Base, and someone as incompetent as Barry Soetoro never would have been Hired, regardless of his Official Victim Status as Black Man in Amerika Today!

1992 was the end of America, and our final phase as a country was initiated.

Amazing how little Republicans have to say after losing big time at the polls last month.

The best they can do is dredge up scandals from decades ago.

You don't see Democrats bringing up Watergate - we talk about CURRENT issues like the fiscal cliff.

More insults with no attempt at debating the issues.

I'll take that as an admission of defeat.
