translation: Marxists love to cover-up debt as having LOTS OF MONEY.

Marxism, like ALL anti-Christ doctrines, is based upon the female psyche.

Easy to see, ya know.

We are not only ruled by political Marxists, but our mass media AND public education expound Marxist ideology.

We never had a chance.

I wonder if "gutting" education and healthcare is a 6% increase in annual funding instead of a 15% increase? That's what the Democrats call a 6% increase in Minnesota.

The top 5% of Americans OWN and CONTROL 65% of ALL of America's wealth...and they want more.

The rich have middle class and poor people fighting each other as the rich sit back and laugh at the stupidity of the middle class.

States are NOT broke...they just refuse to tap the deep pockets of the powerfully rich.

Middle Class workers won't wake up until their schools are completely ruined, the poor are on the streets and the elderly are dying from the lack of Medicare...then they will revolt...but it will be too late.

Mike, when the time comes they will pay more. Cultures usually come to that. But that does not mean we can't clean up the corruption and behavior issues that cost us a lot of money at the middle class level.

Oh yeah, ALL, 100% of Republiscum/TeaParasites are LIARS.

They have the mentality of common criminals and do nothing but lie in order to TAX and STEAL.

The USA is awash in money. We are the richest nation the world has ever seen. The problem is that 30 years of Ronnie Alzheimer ChimpBoy Reaganomics has transferred the wealth from the middle class to the top 1%.

It is grand THEFT on a massive scale and PaulNazi Ryan is trying to make it worse.

He is a THIEF and nothing more.

For the 400 U.S. taxpayers with the highest adjusted gross income, the effective federal income tax rate—what they actually pay—fell from almost 30 percent in 1995 to just under 17 percent in 2007, according to the IRS.

And for the approximately 1.4 million people who make up the top 1 percent of taxpayers, the effective federal income tax rate dropped from 29 percent to 23 percent in 2008.

It may seem too fantastic to be true, but the top 400 end up paying a lower rate than the next 1,399,600 or so.

That State is broke. Many States are broke...too many years of doling out $ to pet-causes, perks, and pay-offs/paybacks for Political favors. With each cent that gas prices rise-look for more and more belt tightening.

Tightening by Corporations/Businesses that is.

Republican Broke. I like it. Says it exactly. It works. Two words, five syllables. Republican Broke. Nail on the head. Voo Doo economics. Tree words five syllables. Nothing has changed. The answer is always the same. Cut the taxes for the elite. How the F are we suppose to pay any debt by reducing the amount of money the Government has to work with.((WTF)) in freekin double parenthesis. But they always think that the best way to reduce taxes for the working man is reducing the amount of money he makes. Republican Broke.

Sounds either like a Fair Tax argument or a Class Warfare argument. Our current code allows for the "loop holes" like GE paying zero taxes until they got caught. Google, I am CERTAIN, pays close to nothing.

But you are picking on individuals. Earned income.

GE operates internationally. They aren't taxed on offshore profits.

Losses in lending (GE capital) reduced their remaining taxes.

Thank congress for our tax code.

The middle class in America has a lot of wealth in their homes, in their retirement accounts, in their kids' college funds. This is wealth that middle America has worked for all their lives. obama has managed to bankrupt a few million middle class and add them to the poverty class. Also under obama the rich have gotten richer... just like they always do. The rich create the most jobs, the rich pay the most taxes, the rich donate the most to charity, the rich pay their own way. It's the poor who fail to contribute to society and it's the poor who support the Democratic party. The Democrats must keep more people in poverty than the combined rich and middle class so they continue to have the votes to remain in power.
