GSA had a big bash out in Vegas at taxpayers' expense. The head of GSA and some deputies got fired after it became a news story. How many similar events never make the news?

Obama is making a big news story out of his Buffett Plan to tax millionaires at 30% but there already is a AMT that taxes at about 28%.

Our leaders need to come to their senses and be honest about how to fix our problems. They need to quit fighting over sound bite topics and tackle the underlying causes of our economic and fiscal mess ---- gluttonous federal government and ....

I would LOVE to see taxes on the rich go down...So if they would create alot of good paying jobs the poor would not need help to live and BOOM taxes would go way down....Why dont you and your rich buddies create jobs and use the HUGE tax deductions you would get from that????
Their taxes were cut by Bush. And since then, they've create NO jobs. There's NO reason to think they've had a sudden revelation and will create any now. It will be fun watching them expire.

No small buiness, or corporation will begin hiring until after the tax, and spend Democrats are out of office. The financial future is too uncertain until we elect a business friendly Congress. We are so busy buying votes from the idle we don't have time to think about jobs

Obama is simply playing politics to the tv cameras when he gets up and talks about taxing the rich like Warren Buffet.

Buffet's income is protected by trusts. Ordinary tax laws don't apply to people like Buffet.

The AMT is a tax at 28% so that people who earn a lot of tax free income or have lots of divs and cap gains at 15% at least pay 28%.

Why doesn't Obama just ask congress to raise the AMT from 28% to 30%? Because he is playing politics and demagogging the issue and saying that the republicans represent only the wealthy.

I used to like Obama, but I never thought that he should have been president. Now, I don't even like the guy.

Go back to Chicago Barry and reorganize the old neighborhoods and try to keep the kids from shooting each other out there on the sidewalks of the southside of Chicago.

That 50% pays consumption taxes and payroll taxes (excluding income taxes).

The FKING rich pays capital gain at a lower rate.

You forgot that, according to his released income tax data, Mittens only paid 13.9% on $20+ MILLION of income. No AMT.

So -- just HOW are recipients supposed to pay? With the money they DON'T have?

Just more "blaming the victim" going on -- as usual!

HOGWASH! No business will begin hiring until there is NEED for more workers. There is a slowly increasing need for more workers, but that will not speed up until there are more customers driving more and more sales.

No businessperson allows potential customers to leave empty-handed. THAT is the primary concern -- NOT marginal tax rates!
