can you believe it !!!!!!!!!!

my wife went to college for 8 years, works in medical field at a hospital, and still has to pay $500 a month for family healthcare with $2000 deductible per person, and $35 co-pays per visit that does go towards deductible.

the outrage of it all.

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.

How extreme. No need to "take all the CEO's money". How about the CEOs only make 400 times more than the employees, instead of 480, and the employees get paid enough to not be on all those social programs you hate so much, and to actually be able to afford to purchase the products the "job creators" are selling from right here in the United States. You know, like the Unions were saying back in the 70s..."Buy American". Then of course there are all those bonuses those CEOs like to give themselves, and their love of having their headquarters located in America, yet do everything under the sun to avoid paying taxes or to be responsible for their industries destroying our land to the point that they have truck drivers barking out their corporate/political agendas without the slightest idea why and in the face of the middle class working man's best interests.
why is it a CEO earning 10 million a year has you foaming at the mouth; and Justin Bieber earning 25 million a year does not bother you?

The CEO must make sure company profits and grows so it can meet payroll and provide a return on investment for owners ( stockholder)

Bieber is a punk who needs deported, and career ended.

Where is all the outrage of Michael Jordon and Tiger Woods earning 75 million a year, or Tom Criuse 25 million a film?

Your envy is placed wrong. Smart people become CEO's, and pretty people film stars, and Athletes play games well.

80% of actors or athletes without current job would be all but homeless, and 80% of CEO's would still be in top 10% of income earners in America.

PS: your buy American.......just down the street from you is a fortune 500 company that is heavily invested in the American auto industry..........go peek at what the employees drive to work in majority. Those employees are your union democrat team complaining about the current situation of layoffs and outsourcing. They also shop at WalMart.

reap what you sow.

Now Tesla is bypassing dealerships, and car dealers are lobbying for lawsuits forbidding a manufacture cut them out. I am still laughing.

last 5 cars I purchased have been on ebay. The local dealers have ZERO value, and just tell me about the lines of people waiting to buy the car I am looking at. I should pay the dealer more because they are there.

Want irony....drive a car that was supposed to be allocated, and the dealer having the only one for hundred of miles look on face, when you drive one bought on ebay in for complementary oil changes.

tell me again how a CEO destroyed your life.

Maybe I can publish it as a comic book and give you a royalty of 1%.

Wow, this is crazy, even for you. If you had anything of truth or value to say, you wouldn't base your entire argument off of absurd and unrelated comparisons. On a funny note though, my wife and I had a good laugh when I explained how much harder the CEOs work when compared to the employees. We both laughed and laughed at how stupid it sounded because we have both worked for what we have in life and know it to be about the furthest from the truth one could possibly get. Then we tried to imagine what kind of powdered wig, silver spoon country club sissy would actually say something like that and mean it.(Your name here)

"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."

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.

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.

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.

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.

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..

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.
