I didn't say that the 49 million payed no tax, I said they paid no federal income tax. BTW 47 million isn't good either. It should be 7.5 million at most. 47 or 49 million is unsustainable. If you have taxes taken out of income and are then reimbursed for every penny you paid in then, in the end, you paid nothing. You can word it any way you want but the net gain to the government is $0. Please show me where the 1.4 trillion figure is. I was wrong in the $30 billion. The estimates I found are in the $70 billion range but still far short. It comes to 1/20 of what we need each year. Look at my post again. I said businesses (not my business) will make sure their income is below the $250K range. I would never do that. Simplify the tax code and we are not even having this conversation. 10-15% across the board with no deductions and everyone pays whether you have a job or are a life long entitlement recipient. Don't tax seniors above 65 at all. They have paid enough.
How do you figure Seniors above 65 paid enough? I know I have paid more than many Seniors. Tax everybody and be fair about it!

no you are right you said 49 percent instead of 47 percent.. in all reality around 150 million people.... not even close to the 47 or 49 million... percents and numbers must have gotten mixed up and i will not hold you liable for that because i know where you are comming from...i agree with all the tax exemptions for the lower and middle income tax brackets... maybe you should check those out because you may fall into some of those tax breaks... the tax code is simple it's just most people just do not take the time to understand how our marginal tax rates work in this country ... http://taxes.about.com/od/Federal-Income-Taxe... ... this post should clarrify things... and actually instead of 1.4 trillion it's more like 4 trillion over 10 years.. and his tax plan and these numbers do not come strictly from taxing the rich... and can be found online i posted the marginal tax rates you can look up the tax numbers on your own .. i beleive in you... and it does not matter like i said about what businesses do .. because ... our US tax code is ran on marginal tax rates so ... like i said.. businesses making up to 250,000 dollars wil be taxed at the same rate as today.. only if house republicans sign the bill that has probably already collected dust on there desks...and it is currently up to republicans and democrats in the house and senate to determine what the tax rates will be for people making over 250,000.. if they do not act the tax cuts will expire and we will just go back to the same tax rates that were enacted when clinton was in office... so with that being said... it would be alot easier if republicans would just sign the bill on incomes 250,000 dollars or less so at least lower incomes of that amount will not have to worry about taxes going up ... and seniors above 65 do not pay any income taxes... when's the last time your grandma filed her taxes?... but property tax for seniors i believe should be repreved for the remainder of their life but ... that is only up to the states that have property tax not up to the federal government.

<quoted text>I have no qualms with how the Stock Market has performed under Obama. Tell me why Obama didn't run on that Stock Market record? I have moved ALL of my money over into what is called the "G" Fund. Look that one up genius. It's a government secure fund. No risk, little reward but when you have a substantial amount of money all I can do is make more of it! I made big bucks in International Funds when Bush was in office. Look up those funds why you are at it. 20% won't hurt me where I am at. My annuities will keep rolling in with little change unless I change them! It's you poor liberals struggling on fixed income, living pay check to pay check that will take the big hit. Oh well, you voted for it now you got to live with it. I am still curious as to why Obama didn't run on that Stock Market record. Maybe it didn't fit in with his class warfare! I hope these Bush tax cuts expire on you guys also! LOL!
what a joke...lol... you run on not wanting government in your life .. yet as soon as governement funding comes up republicans are all for it ... same with obamacare... and with your G fund you got going on there .. i hope they raise tax rates too .. not gonna hurt me at all .... raise income rates for people above 250,000 to a certain percent yet still under 40 for the highest income...close all loopholes and deductions for these brackets... cut corporate tax rates to 28 percent.. and give tax incentives for bringing companies home instead of sending them over seas.. which in all reality is pretty close to what obama wants to do ... obama did not run on the stock market record because all initial investments and spending and plans made by the adminstration and congress ultimatley led to mild recovery of the stock market so why not run on the plans that got the stock market in a better situation rather than just run on how well the stock market is doing? everything makes sense if you see the other person's point of view only problem in the republican world is they don't have a different point of view... it's all the same point of view which just happens to be grover norquist point of view and a few of his rich buddies... several republicans signed a pledge not to raise taxes but if these boneheads do nothing then in a sense they are still breaking the pledge because taxes will go up no matter what...

<quoted text> so i have no time nor patience for ignorance like yours and your posts on here... you know absolutly nothing...what i said earlier about the taxes is that our system is ran on marginal tax rates.... and for people making up to 250,000 dollars a year will continue to be taxed at the same rate... that's iff republicans in the house vote on it... if not who cares i'd rather see tax rates go back to the clinton years.. we actually had growth under him and have had no growth under bush and minimal growth under obama and the only thing holding back the obama administration are these taxes... and republicans... who would rather talk about bengahzi, repealing obamacare, take away womens rights, make it harder to vote, and make it harder for people to migrate to this country... they are not concerened about the real issues at hand and that is jobs... there is a jobs bill sitting in the house already passed by the senate in a bipartisan agreement.. but house republicans would rather do anything but vote on it... and i was over exagerating the percentage.. which i corrected .. unlike all the lies and gerrymandering tossed out on issues like i stated above in which republicans would rather try and show how bad obama is doing, which he is not, so they can gain some political credibility which they lost and if they don't change their ways will continue to lose... republicans are just mad and i think a little enveious that this president has made no credibale mistakes like all the other presidents in his terms as president.. and even more mad that it is a black guy doing great things.
Where was that great jobs bill when Obama had the House and the Senate during his first two years? He could have had anything he wanted! Instead he crammed big tax health care down our throats! I honestly hope those Bush tax cuts expire! LOL! You people are about to get everything you deserve!

LOL! I retired from the government and still have my money tied up in their funds! It was big government I retired from, you know the type you like, I became rich thanks to the tax payers and my knowledge of investing money! Income tax rates should be raised for EVERYBODY, lets get real here if we are going to lower the defecit everybody should have to pitch in. Do not extend the Bush tax cuts and tax everybody at 49%! Lets get this show on the road. Don't be such a hypocrite all of your life. Do YOUR share for the country for a change!

who cares what he could have done he did what he needed to do at the time to stop the bleeding and further economic collapse...and second did the right thing by passing a substantial healthcare bill that was long overdue in this country... i mean being one of the last leading nations in the world to offer it's citizens affordable healthcare is crazy.. should not have taken this long and cudos for him pushing it through..... but the real issue is jobs ..and that jobs bill is still sitting on house republicans desks along with the tax breaks collecting dust.. that's where the bills have gone straight to republican treason and grid lock.

Why don't your hero just pass a jobs bill by Executive Order? He's such a great golfer, I mean with only 25 million people unemployed and 50 million people on welfare. I can't wait for all the losers to start whining when their health care increases. This is going to be so much fun! LOL! I am still waiting on those shovel ready jobs! LOL!

It was Main Street who put President Obama BACK in office not Wall-Street, they know how their 401ks' have grown over the last four years, and what the Stock Maret means to the retirement fund that will issue company retirement checks.

why should he have to pass executive orders to do what a majority of the United States wants to do ?... that goes against the general logic of the constitution ... remember you were in the government getting rich off taxpayer money you should know this... then guess what the republicans will give him hell about passing an executive order... republicans in the house and some in the senate have did nothing but commet treason by providing years of government gridlock that has hindered the growth of this country

Reading comprehension wasn't your strong point in home school was it! I said the Market will go down at least 20% in the next year. I will wait until it bottoms out and then shift my money back in to buy stocks at a low price only to make money when the Market goes up. That's how you do it. I attempted to write this where even a 3rd grader could understand it. I hope that helps!

LOL! I guess only poor people are aloud to post on Topix. I missed that rule but hey, you liberals always make up the rules as you go. Obama hs done a fantastic job! We only have a defecit of over 16 trillion dollars, there are only over 25 million people unemployed and only 48 million people on welfare. Since Obamas term unemployment and welfare has risen and those are just the facts. Obama is doing a great job. Gas was higher over this Thanksgiving Holiday than it was over last years holiday, he is doing a great job. Four great Americans needlessly killed on 9/11 and then an attempted cover up right before the election. Obama is a great President. More executive Orders than you can count! I can go on and on about your hero.

I am fine, I will always be fine. You liberals will be scavaging for scraps for the rest of your lifes! GUARANTEED! LOL!

Funny, most Wall Street experts say that to make money in the stock maret, it is a long term proposition.

But what difference does that make when you had your money in "International Funds"

"only over 25 million people unemployed"

Did someone forget to tell you that the elderly, disabled , and those to young to work yet, really do not count as unemployed?

Maybe they will teach you young trolls about that before you exit the tenth grade.

The "I" fund is part of an American 401K program.

It is a long term proposition but you can hit the home run every now and then.

Educate yourself or you will be stuck where you are for the rest of your life! Sad.......
