Tax bills for rich families approach 30-year high

Mar 3, 2013 Full story: The Republic 343

With Washington gridlocked again over whether to raise their taxes, it turns out wealthy families already are paying some of their biggest federal tax bills in decades even as the rest of the population continues to pay at historically low rates.

And yet they're STILL richer than they've ever been, while the poor are still poorer than they've ever been.

Yea, lets take more money from them, cause there are more of us than there are of them and they have better cars than we do. Then lets do it again and then again and again. Why can't we just quit working and let the rich pay all taxes even ours and give us money to live on too.

We need MORE and MORE and MORE. The President is right to want to bleed them dry.

Several poor families and illegals could live in one of the evil Richie BIG HOUSES? The Movie Dr Zhivago is a good example of fair housing.......social justice style.

Attack Mr President!!!!Stick it to them!!!!!!

The rich can afford it; the poor can't.

The average income in the US is around $50K. If you make more than the average, you should be paying more, much more. If you make $50K, the people making $80K ARE the rich.

Actually, this explains a lot about you and your cohorts.

Clinton's tax rates were too high. I was making $56,000 and I took home less than $3,000 a month. I was taxed at 40 percent including federal, state and local taxes, and I took home $2,700 and it costs $1,500 to rent a studio apt. in a really dangerous neighborhood in San Francisco. Houses in bad neighborhoods cost $750K. I guess rent for a studio in a decent neighborhood is more like $3,000 a month. So $56K taxed at 40 percent is a lot less than those on disability with free rent and free money and free medical get and they NEVER work and never pay any taxes. It's not worth working.

What the liberals would do if you let them is they would have ALL of the blacks and ALL of the Mexicans on either full welfare, including free housing, and have a lot of them in government jobs making 3 times what they are worth in the private sector, and the liberals would tax the 2 percent 95 percent of their incomes and give it to 300 million low IQ violent Aholes to live fat and have ten kids on welfare. It's total bullsh!t is what it is. Why is it so important to have the dumbest and meanest have the most kids at the expense of the strongest and brighest? It's sooooooo important. That's how we got a nation of high school dropouts, of gang members and of morons. Yahoo, unemployable morons making a nation third world. So what??? Why is this important? The ONLY reason anyone would want to do that is they hate white people or hate smart people and they are interested in protecting their own race.

Sounds like you lived in the wrong city/state. I hear Alabama is much less expensive.

You can't make that kind of money in Alabama, and who is going to move from CA, especially from San Francisco to the deep south? NO ONE. I'm not super fat and ugly and dumb. They would eat me up and spit me out in the south. I'd have to start taking meth and get really fat and dumb down.

Your favorite 20 - 50 millions stars could pay a couple of millions more in taxes and they still have take home money to the tune of millions which in their 1 year income the working poor middle class will never see in a few lifetime. However the question is who makes them rich but the stupid poor working class themselves.

That tax rate is way too high for people who have nothing. I live in Sacto now and it's a welfare city yet the rent is $900, but everyone is on SSI and welfare and there are NO jobs. I can see taxing really rich people 40 percent but to be taxing people who have no retirement, no savings, no bonds, no stocks, NOTHING, 40 percent on a tiny 50K, Jesus Christ. They have proven that people on welfare can get as much as $85,000 a year. The free rent in CA is worth over 1,000 a month, the SSI used to pay $1,200 per person, CA was paying an extra $500 payment per month, free Medicaid, food stamps, that equals a lot more than taking home $2,700 after taxes, but they do not ever have to work, I had to commute and work 40 hours a week. It's BS. If you are going to pay $50K for not working, pay me $100K for working, or if you want to pay me $50K and I have NOTHING, I'm one check away from being homeless, then tax me 10 percent for god's sake.

Another example is let's say a man makes $300,000 a year and he has a family. Okay. If he supports his wife and 3 kids, he pays for 5 people to live, pays for a house, several cars, and he pays over $75K per year in taxes. He doesn't have a lot of money left. He's not rich, especially if he lives in a big city like NY or SF. At the same time, the low IQ moron who has never worked and never will can rake in $75K just for existing and have ten kids on welfare and commit crimes and never pay one cent in taxes. At that rate, every person making 300K is paying 75K in taxes per year only supports one criminal moron to live fat on the government, well on him actually - he gives his money to the government.

Perhaps you should re-read your past posts if you think you're too smart for Alabama...

You can't have 50 million people on food stamps for very long. You would have to take ALL the wealth of the few rich folks and hand it out to the criminal morons and all they would do is have ten kids and then soon you will have 500 million morons on food stamps.

What is coming next is taking the big SS and Medicare from those who are on big gov. and union pensions retired. Suddenly not only will there be 50 million poor people, the old folks who didn't save one cent won't be able to live fat on the gov. much longer either.

There is NO way a few rich people can pay for all of that crap - for 80 million old useless dumb spend thrift morons to get SS and Medicare AND for another 50 million nonworking useless low IQ morons to reproduce on welfare.

How many of those people have IQs above 100 and could complete one college class or save their own money?? One out of one million, maybe, so their value is zero or actually, since they are huge financial liabilities, their value is minus 10.

And now the government wants to bring all of these wealthy educated people into the country from all around the world to pick up the tax burden. They want people with money to come here and start businesses, they want people to buy homes here, and they want people with degrees in engineering and computer science here, and those poor people will be expected to be taxed to pay for the 50 million Mexicans on welfare who drop out of high school. they should have shut the southern border down 30 years ago. The politicians are rich and live in rich gated communities so they had NO clue that the Mexicans where having so many kids and would end up controlling the elections without having ANY money, without paying any taxes and with them all being on welfare programs. And yet here we are, this is where we are at, so now they want all these people to come here and invest here and pay big taxes to pay for the Mexicans to be on welfare and to drop out of high school and go to prison. I wouldn't come here if I was them. I wish I could get the Fk out of the U.S.

Wait until all this crap collapses in the next few years - the debt, the bond market, the entitlements, all of it. It will be third world full on and riots, and it is not ever coming back up.

I just placed in Honors classes in college cause I placed in Honors English. I would stop wasting your time abusing strangers online if I were you. It's a waste of time and destructive and mean and illegal. Internet bullying is illegal.

I have yet to see ONE person online anywhere who is anywhere near as smart as I am. I feel totally alone all the time. NO one reads books, no one is smart, no one knows one thing ever, and all I do is teach for free, and the last thing I need is some low IQ abuser online saying mean, stupid crap to me. I'm sick to death of men who hate smart women, of stupid mean people, of fat lazy people, of know nothings. The ONLY time I feel safe at all is when I read books where the authors are on my level. If I could do so, I would leave here now before it collapses in total. It's a third world dump going broke loaded full of stupid people who are mean as hell. I do not want any part of the U.S. I want nothing to do with any of it any longer. I get less than zero out of any of it, all I get out of living in the U.S. is being abused by third world idiots. I'm soooooooo too good for this loser country it is not even funny.

That's because they are RICHER THAN EVER, and they were paying the correct rates before.
And What is "before?"
Before Ronald Reagan cut their taxes, and put the USA onto the deficit train
