Alas dear Denny you did not respond to my points on the 47% issue. And BTW while you and they (the repubs) gripe about those below poverty level not paying taxes, it is my general understanding big corps like Shell don't either. Care to explain why no one criticizes that? Scr*w the lower/no taxes on speaking engagement fees or gains/losses on investments --- income is income and it should ALL be taxed.<quoted text>Tony his point was that people who don't pay federal tax are not very interested in the tax issue. Nothing wrong with people who don't pay tax it is just not their hot button issue. Just like guns is a hot botton issue for me people who don't have a gun background aren't interested in my hot button issue
Last time I checked, the threshold for "miscellaneous" deductions is 2% while the threshold for medical is 7%. That is fricking outrageous -- unless you're terminally ill and near death you can't catch a break.
