Every topic/comment/question you post on the Welch forum is silly/stupid and has nothing to do with Welch,WV.,.

We don't need government subsidizing PBS, let it survive in the market or die without wasting our tax dollars. Romney will cut wasteful government spending, that's why he's got my vote.

I liked the way Romney debated. He didn't sound mean or snide. I think he'll be a good President.

That's a popular misconception. Romney was nominated by the Tea Party, not the rich. His policy is, cut wasteful government spending, repeal intrusive regulation and stop higher taxes. Here's some proof, he won't increase middle class taxes:

he Obama campaign claims that a Princeton economist's findings support its assertions about Mitt Romney's tax plan, but the economist says that's not exactly true.

"Harvard economist Martin Feldstein and Princeton economist Harvey Rosen both concede that paying for Romney’s tax cuts would require large tax increases on families making between $100,000 and $200,000," the Obama campaign wrote in a press release on Sunday.

But Princeton economist Harvey Rosen's paper analyzing Romney's tax plan didn't exactly look at families making between $100,000 and $200,000. Instead, it analyzed families making more than $100,000 per year and families making more than $200,000 per year. The second group is part of the first group, and Rosen did not separate the two.

Rosen told the Weekly Standard in an email that he felt that the Obama campaign misrepresented the paper on a broader level too. "I can’t tell exactly how the Obama campaign reached that characterization of my work," he wrote in an email to the publication..."

If we don't stop the Bush tax cuts from expiring, everyone will pay higher rates. Congress has the authority to write tax law, we need to keep the House and take the Senate.

Certainly the rich getting much richer, paying absolutely next to nothing in taxes of any sort. Lower wages for the middle class, but higher taxes and higher taxes on the working poor.

Children working and schools only for the rich.

Pollution which will increase the cancers, as MTR has increased cancers in WV.

Prisons built for those with bad debt.

Mormonism becoming the theocracy of the land, and born again evangelism outlawed....well, there HAD to be a silver lining somewhere.

The top 25% of income-earners pay about 80% of the income taxes in the country.

The top 10% pay about 70% of the income taxes.

The top 5% pay more than half of the income taxes.

And the top 1% pay more than 30% of the income taxes--a percentage that has been steadily growing over time.(You can see why the top 1% complains about having to shoulder too much much of the tax burden.)

PICKET: New book shows U.S. top earners pay larger share of taxes than any other industrialized nation

The Wall Street Journal's Stephen Moore has just come out with a new book titled Who's the Fairest of Them All?: The Truth about Opportunity, Taxes, and Wealth in America and he reveals some interesting information about how much the top ten percent of income earners in the United States pay in federal income taxes as opposed to any other industrialized nation in the world.
According to Moore, these earners pay almost half (45 percent) of the country's total taxes. This conclusion flies in the face of the liberal concept that top earners in the U.S. are not paying their "fair share" in taxes. Moore explains:
"The United States is actually more dependent on rich people to pay taxes than even many of the more socialized economies of Europe. According to the Tax Foundation, the United States gets 45 percent of its total taxes from the top 10 percent of tax filers, whereas the international average in industrialized nations is 32 percent. America’s rich carry a larger share of the tax burden than do the rich in Belgium (25 percent), Germany (31 percent), France (28 percent), and even Sweden (27 percent)."

Hey, like you guys say about the poor in America, the American upper 1% make more money than ALL other nations make.

And the percentage of taxes on the books does NOT include the loopholes they have NOR the offshore accounts where Romney stores his hundreds of millions more dollars he pays NO taxes on.

Not according to your article.

And let's look at wages. The upper 1% tax bracket, as Romney showed us, can go down to 13%. Take into account his hundreds of millions he puts in off shore accounts and pays NO taxes on, and you have far less than that.

BTW, where's a list of the loopholes the upper 1% have?
