Actually, public education surpasses private and charter schools in educating children. They also surpass in making better interactions with people from diverse situations.

And if health care isn't for all Ameicans, who are you judging in place of christ to not get health care?

Everyone should contribute to support society.

Over 40% of Americans contribute nothing to the USA. Many of the 40% don't work, none pay taxes or earn the support they get from those that do contribute.

Most of these are not truly disabled. Some choose not to work or find reasons to let others support them.

I don't care if it is school or healthcare, when the government gets involved we get poor results and a lot of waste.

Proof of this? Where's your link to this information? Or is it just more ugly racism coming from the right wing?

Nope...that's not true. They pay payroll taxes and taxes on SSDI and Social Security.l

Google "percentage of people who pay no income taxes".

40% or more of all Americans pay no federal or state income tax. Sure, if you work or buy something you pay SSI or sales tax. The 40% get every dollar withheld in federal and state income tax when they file their returns.

If you want to get even more into detail many of those 40% get back more than was ever withheld in payroll tax (earned income credit and other low wage earner deductions).

Anything else you want to learn Cookie?

Those are INCOME taxes. The 40% you are talking about work for such low wages, they don't owe anything at the end of the year...so they don't pay in anymore. As a matter of fact, their wages are so low, they may actually RECEIVE income taxes back because of living below the poverty line while working.

YOU might want to look up and understand some of the terms used in the article before you try to discuss this issue again. They bottom 40% PAY taxes, but make such low wages, they don't OWE additional income tax at the end of the year.

Here's what the rich hide in republican created "off shore" accounts and pay NO taxes on it.

http://www.npr.org/2012/08/08/158441566/tax-e...

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has acknowledged that he had money in a Swiss bank account until 2010. Romney says he wasn't trying to hide the money, since he reported the account to the government.

Even so, he closed the account at a time when the federal government was in the middle of a major crackdown on offshore tax havens a crackdown that has made it harder for Americans to hide their money overseas.

The amount of money stashed in offshore tax havens is staggering. A recent report from The Tax Justice Network estimates it's as much as $31 trillion worldwide and that's just an educated guess.

And I am correct. 40% of American's contribute nothing to pay for running the US government.

Anyone who receives assistance should be required to work or earn their aid. It is called contributing and the US has become a nation of many who chose to use the system like a hammock.

BTW, what law did Romney break? And why do you hate successful people?

Sounds like you don't make much $, are jealous and want something you didn't earn.

No, you are not right. There's no facts you have presented. You are just one of many misinformed FOX viewers who believe the lies you are told.

Romney didn't break ANY laws...the rich can LEGALLY hide their billions from taxes. What laws did the working poor break by not paying MORE income taxes at the end of the year?
