Yeah thats it Billy keep saying it, "the rich don't pay their fair share". Get yourself a tent and join the commie gang on Wall Street, and scream your head off about taking somebody elses money. The 53% of the people who do pay the taxes don't like to pay, but guess what, we do. You should really be screaming about the freeloaders that don't pay. When Soros sends you the check does withold tax?
You need the education, almost half don't pay taxes. All your post are me,me,me. This is the US, and that spells us. Us in like maybe everybody should pay something, not just some. Its the Tea Party's fault, its Bush's fault, its the rich's fault, that poor little me,me,me has to pay all the taxes, bo-ho. Not a word about your boy obozo running up 6 trillion in debt, or about how the dems in the senate hasn't submitted a budet in over 3 years. Taxing the rich won't solve the debt, it would only help run government for what, like 70 days?
Boy! Billy Bob, u sure talk without checking stuff! For any law to be brought up, it has to start in CONGRESS, if it passes, it goes to the SENATE, if it passes, it goes to the president for his signature!! WHAT ARE U MISSING? only the congress can make tax increases, then the senate passes it, then AGAIN to the president!!
So how did Bush make tax increases? I'm not as smart as u, so may be u can explain, how he made all these tax increases, without CONGRESS!????? SEE MAKING STATEMENTS WITH OUT KNOWING OR CHECKING THINGS OUT!! DON'T KEEP MAKING A FOOL OF YOURSELF, NOW BE A NICE DEMOCRAT, AND CHECK WHICH PARTY CONTROLLED CONGRESS THE LAST TWO YEARS OF THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION!! THE DAMN DEMOCRATS!! and idiot Bush signed whatever they put in front of him!! MADE A FOOL OF YOURSELF AGAIN!!
U have taken the bait about George Bush,[from the main stream press, of which 93% voted Democrat last election!] I agree he was'nt the smartest guy at Yale[think it was Yale!] but he passed with higher marks than Bill Clinton, and Clinton is a pretty smart guy! Another MADE UP FACT AGAIN, REMEMBER THERE A LOT OF SMART GUYS OUT THERE THAT ARE LAUGHING AT YR MADE UP STATEMENTS!!! NOBODY GRADUATES AT AN IVY LEAGUE COLLEGE WITH 92 IQ, MAYBE YOU WERE TRYING TO MAKE US LAUGH! MY IQ IS 163, SO I'D SAY 92 IS AN OUTRIGHT LIE!! BUT AT LEAST YOU MAKE US ALL LAUGH!! U'RE SO TRANSPARENT! YOU NEED HELP!
Let me try again and educate u, if a rich guy did'nt have TAX BREAKS he maybe would'nt buy that boat, so someone that made the sails does'nt have a job, someone that cuts the wood for the boat does'nt have a job, someone that drove the big 18 wheeler to carry the supplies does'nt have a job, someone who cut the wood in the saw mill does'nt have a job the cut the wood! and on and on,, shit! stop with the envy shit! Go make a million dollars, so u can pay tax on it and we can have some redistributed money too!
You deny being a "gimee, gimee" Democrat, get used to it, u are!! Obama wins elections, because he gets fools to believe they are owed something, and he'll take it away and redistribute to u!! If u like that, consider moving to Venezuela, Chavez just won another term!! Trouble for u is, he's already taxed all the rich, now guess who he's going to tax next!! Yr kind of people!! If that's not yr cup of tea, try Cuba, if u disagree or voice an opinion they don't like! Off to prison!
Believe me I don't see any hope for you! But I'll pray for you ! at least until Muslim Obama bans Christian prayer!
I understand what you're saying I don't think you understand. One post you say one thing then you try to change into something different in another post. In a way I sort of feel sorry for you because you fell hook, line, and sinker to the dem lie, you have been brainwashed my friend. You scream and yell, (thats what it is when you use all caps) about taxes when this story started out about spending tax dollars on the worthless U.N. Or do you think the U.N. is a good idea to. You really need to save your ranting if and when there is a discussion on taxes.
Billy Bob, I'm not rich, but not lazy , trying to get rich, on my own, no gov hand outs! Let me educate u, [not in an ugly way!] the top 5% of tax payers pay over 40% of all federal taxes! the top 10% pay 70% of ALL FEDERAL TAXES!!!! HOW MUCH MORE THAN 70% DO U WANT THEM TO PAY, MAYBE 100%, THINK OR CHECK YR FACTS BEFORE U WRITE TO AN INTELLIGENT GROUP OF PEOPLE!!!
If u took every penny from the billionaires, it would'nt run America for 7 months! So leave them alone, they make jobs, and those workers pay tax into the coffers of America , or maybe u've gotten a job from a poor person lately! Not, me, always people richer and better off than myself have given me jobs!!!
There's nothing wrong with Jews,they are good business men, or is that why u're jealous of them, because they've made something of their lives and u've nothing to make yr own life better! Don't rely on others, move yr ass and go accomplish something!! Good luck, hope u make something of yourself! I love my country and if Obama thinks he's going to enslave me! He'd better think again! we're giving up our guns!! LOCK and LOAD!!
Listen guy!If a guy makes say a million in a year, he'll pay between 38% to 50% fed tax, and then state tax, then property tax, and on and on! so he 'll pay $380,000 to $500,000 in taxes, if that's 50% lees than u,u must be earning a shit load of money, me jealous? not at all!! Why? u'll probably buy a Cadillac, someone made the sheet metal, someone made the tires, steering wheel, seats and so on!! Then u'll buy yr yacht same place John Kerry bought his, boat, Hey!! guess what? some one made the keel, metal, sails and so on!! Now to u see how it makes jobs for Americans!!NEXT THING TO DO, MAKE ALL OUR ___T HERE IN GOOD OLD USA!!!! tax the ___t out of stuff made elsewhere! Starting with China[who by the way is stealing ALL our technology!!!] add 50% to all their goods, why? cause we'll be able to compete and make it here!
Tell yr buddy Obama to loosen the money supply, so we can buy houses, and guess who builds those? Americans,we'll have all the jobs we can handle[Oh! Mexicanless!!]
Get out there and make something of yourself ,good luck! your fellow American, Colin.
Actually, tax them the DIFFERENCE between what they are selling it for and what it would cost to make it here, PLUS 20%. Then it would be CHEAPER to make it here!
The only things we need from overseas is stuff we cannot make here. There isn't much. We USED to make EVERYTHING. We won 2 wars with stuff we made here, with NO IMPORTS.
Remember when the Chevy Nova cost about $10,000.00 FOB Japan? That was TAX. The Nova at the time sold for around $2,000.00 here.
