Hey, there's another thing you have said that we will be laughing about months from now. Add it to your armed citizens rioting in the streets if Obama get's re-elected prediction. Just a floundering scarecrow buffoon being laughed at due to the absurd things you constantly say. Pays over 50% in taxes. What a complete liar/nutball.
hey nut job loser wannabe moron of Canton.

ever hear of self employment tax?
social security and medicare is definition. Since the figure changes every year under Obama, last I looked it was 15.4%.

or how about federal income tax? I think 21% is correct.
you never earned enough to owe this, but 50% of the country does.

or state income tax? It changed, but I think is 6%
again you never earned enough.

or city income tax? 2.5%

Or property tax? 5%

utility taxes?

sales tax?

fuel tax?

and you argue 50%. just the ones easy to prove is 49.90, and not a cent of sales tax included.

you are a complete uneducated fantasy living failure for doing so.

if every license fee, and special add on taxes could be counted and added.....50% is low.

did you know every single fishing item as example has a 10% government excise tax?
this list is so long of other taxes my fingers would bleed typing it out.

when America wants the economy to grow and produce jobs....they lower taxes.

fact check with state of NY the highest tax state in the union giving up to 20 years of no taxes to start a business in NY.

or Obama's newly created industrial zones in Detroit and Chicago with no taxes plus government subsidy.

Obama being re-elected is proof how far America has fallen from the tree.

From shinning beacon on the hill, to 3rd world country in 5 years.

choke on your hope and change, it is all childish fantasy about to be erased.

If you weren't so involved in being programmed by your string pullers, you would realize that people with preexisting conditions have always been able to get health insurance. I've been an insulin dependent diabetic for nearly 30 years and have never been without health insurance until now, and it's not because of my ailment, it's because of the ailment of this country.
So I should thank DumBama for losing my healthcare insurance? Maybe I should praise him if I lose my job. Maybe I'll adore him if I lose my home.
You libs always rant on how greedy and selfish those wealthy people are, but nobody is more greedy and selfish than a liberal. You could care less how many millions of people get hurt in this country by that communist, as long as government has more and more control over our lives, as long as non-producers get equal or more than producers, as long as good responsible people are punished.
So now you claim to be without health insurance as of now. Hey, at least you can get a policy. They wouldn't touch you before then.

Canton's type of people don't add up all those taxes, just the taxes taken from their check. If it's not right in front of them, it's not counted. It's what I've been trying to explain to him about all this "green" nonsense. We all pay for it, it's just that you don't see it.
A so-called wealthy person only pays 35% of taxes in their mind. Forget what they pay for state, city, county, and sales taxes. Again, not included. 35% is too low so they need to pay more. Forget that those same people pay way over 50% of all their income when all taxes are combined.
Plus, everything you buy already has an approximate 25% embedded tax. If we buy a widget, 25% of that widgets cost went to pay for corporate tax, payroll tax, whatever it cost for duty, tax on fuel for transport...... list goes on and on.

7% sales tax is just the cherry on top and all that cantons ilk sees.

that woman will also pay more annually in taxes, than your self described job above.

Then there is me, who has no employer paying a portion of my taxes like wife has, and is excluded from things like unemployment, workers compensation, or any vacation or paid sick days. My income is commission driven only, and corporate greed is always attempting to cut my commission rate.

So when you speak about subsidies.....Please send some my way.

I pay over 50% of my income on taxes of some sort.

you want people to have jobs, and their income able to provide for a family?

if you do, then get on the bandwagon of cutting taxes in America by half. Proof that will work.....look at NY advertising no taxes for 10 years, and Obama's tax free industry zones in Chicago & Detroit. They are creating jobs the only way government can....by the landscape.

for 5 years Americas financial landscape has been from mars lunar rover. Romney pays 14% on 23 million in taxes and you listen to this blow heart say he pays over 50 and the challenged converse with him daily! You all need a hobby! Your sucking at this!

"This paper presents summary statistics on the occupations of taxpayers in the top percentile of the national income distribution and fractiles thereof, as well as the patterns of real income growth between 1979 and 2005 for top earners in each occupation, based on information reported on U.S. individual income tax returns. The data demonstrate that executives, managers, supervisors, and financial professionals account for about 60 percent of the top 0.1 percent of income earners in recent years, and can account for 70 percent of the increase in the share of national income going to the top 0.1 percent of the income distribution between 1979 and 2005."

Thanks for the sincere effort to present valid info. Here's the 'but'...This article uses "hypothesis" 3 times, I didn't count how many "may"s are in it, but there's several.
Then they admit that they could I.D. only 17.4% of the top .1%'s occupations. That leaves over 80% of unknowns....not good.
Still they state that the top 1% pay 40% of ALL taxes. That sounds like inequality to me. They also add that most income comes from investments & seemingly disregards salaries alone.
I see more questions unanswered in this article than are answered..

Oopsie, according to this recent in depth study, it is in FACT "your kind" and those corporations you like crawling on your belly like a dog for who will likely be the end of the human race. Basically, this scientific in depth study by experts in their field tells us that the best thing the human race could possibly do to survive is to do the polar opposite of what the right wing Conservatives like yourself are telling us to do.

OK...go on. You were agreeing with the proven logic of Reality Speaks and blabbering about some hypothetical notion that poor people are causing you to be taxed you a gajillion percent while ignoring the fact that corporations are utilizing America's resources while hiding their money offshore and dodging the taxes that the working middle class have carried on their backs since day one..

Hey neat. Scientists were able to document the Big Bang for the first time. I forget. What was it that we had to listen to for decades from bitter, self righteous right wing Christian Conservatives about the subject of the Big Bang theory? Surely it couldn't be another thing they were absolutely wrong about. Surely they weren't once again clinging to ignorance and fear based superstition in the face of scientific study.

Yeah, because eons ago, something non-terrestrial came about and scared us beyond all belief. The simple fact that they were bigger, smarter, stronger, faster, and more resilient than our earliest of ancestors could fathom has nothing to do with how religion was formed, huh? There has always been "God".(read about story of Gilgamesh, or the Hindu religion, which btw has the oldest texts on the planet dating back to the end of the last ice-age) Because of losses in translation in our record keeping and the loss of our literal translations of long-forgotten languages, have we distanced ourselves from something bigger than the Human. If we were to leave it up to the scientific community to answer all of life's unexplainable mysteries there would be dead-zones every few years because of "research". I'm only trying to open your eyes and expose you to more than life in Ross County. There's a whole world of knowledge around you, you just have to be receptive to it.

I see your mind is frozen in Toledo.

Romney's tax you speak about is income tax only. He paid multiple state taxes, property taxes, and city income taxes and sales taxes.

Romney paid more $ in tax than your entire neighborhood did.

when you paying your fair share?

you and Romney should owe exactly the same....both citizens, and both breathing.

why did you not pay taxes like Romney did?

Just because you have had a free lunch your entire life, does not mean everyone has.

Romney in 2013 paid more in just income taxes than your entire family will over their entire life.

you sir are a freeloader.....put that in your crack pipe and smoke it.

This is not to mention that over 45% of all Americans pay no federal income tax at all. One of the reasons we are in economic failure is because one half of the country is paying the entire bill for the other half. Yet the liberals think the solution is to take more from those that are already paying and take nothing from those that are not paying a dime.
and in November 2014 you are going to see real anger at the polls.

2013 tax that was promised not to go up for anyone earning under 250K by Obama.....that is another of his hundreds of lies.

2012 & 2013 taxes are easy to differentiate by those with eyes forced to pay them.

Anybody could get insurance before, it's just that you can't be on and off of it all the time. Once you drop coverage, you have to be on another plan for a year before they would cover anything related to the preexisting condition.
As of April 1, I will no longer be covered. That puts me in a very precarious position; one I've never had to face in my life before. There are millions more like me in our country. This is how Socialism destroys lives.
Waaaaaaah "This is how Socialism destroys lives." Hey drama queen. Is this the part where Glenn Beck starts crying? Perhaps if we were to Google "Happiest country in the world" we can all get a front row seat to how "Socialism destroys lives", seeing the happiest countries in the world are Socialist and no amount of your Tea Bagging propaganda or VERY dramatic statements can change the reality of that fact. Besides, no one believes you when you tell us you lost your insurance anyway. Any grown man that is willing to stoop to teenage girl crying tactics and lies to push forward his dead horse agenda can't be trusted.(Also see haunted truck breaks down once a week due to environmental gadgets)

Do you know what a company gets with a multi-million dollar CEO? One of the best in the business. Somebody that can earn income for their company, provide jobs, expand the business. What do you get when you pay a worker more money than they are worth? The same worker you had before. Production doesn't increase, business doesn't expand, and the company is no better off.
We don't yet live in a country where people or the government dictates what the maximum allowable pay rate for a CEO is or anybody else for that matter. We live in a country where a company and their stockholders get to decide what pay is appropriate. It's nobody's business what anybody else makes. Worry about what you make.
Do you think that when the show Seinfeld was on it's last year and the cast was making a million dollars an episode, they felt that money should be spread to the makeup people, the stage hands, the camera crew, the lighting people? No. Nobody turned on their television to watch the hired hands, they turned on the show to see the stars performing. It's the cast that drew the audience. It was the cast that brought in the money to the show. So it's the cast that got paid the most--hundreds of times more than the crew.
Don't kid yourself there' little Rubber Ducky. Every single speck of what you believe was provided for you by corporate and religious agendas. Toss in a little racism and you've got yourself a Tea Party. Strange how both you and Reality go so very far off track when it comes to talking about the facts. I don't read your posts because they are so stupid, but at one point, I glanced and saw something about the television show Seinfeld. Add that to Reality crying about Justin Bieber and you've got yourself a sad little GOP ship that is lost at sea and just can't seem to stay on track when it comes to the facts. Oh and April is coming. Be sure to pay a gazillion dollars and 99.999 percent of your wages towards taxes. Lies, lies, lies. Also, how absolutely weak that you went from claiming you met imaginary people who were destroyed by Obamacare, to now claiming you have been personally destroyed by Obamacare. How convenient. No one is buying it, but still...what timing.

It's just a shame that he has the ACA law to fall back on now. I would have loved to see his face when he got quoted a price for a policy to include pre-existing conditions before the ACA. He'd be singing a different tune. If he could even get one. He's still to stupid, even after the countless times it has been proven and shown that there is no such thing as an Obama phone.
