    why should poor people pay income tax?

    they are POOR. they can't afford rent, food, clothing, or medicine.

    no, we voted for legislators, and they voted for a national income tax.

    till this day, such taxes are still the Law of the Land.

    if you don't pay your taxes, the government will garnish your wages.

    ...just like if you don't pay your parking tickets, the govt. will seize your car.

    ...roads, firemen, and police... Don't forget the kids. They love to use "the children"....
    I've never been able to understand why a Republican contributor is a 'fat cat' and a Democratic contributor of the same amount of money is a 'public-spirited philanthropist'.

    not only does this not describe the 47% of Americans under discussion; it doesn't even describe the poor.

    unlike the GOP, who saw a govt. shutdown as a campaign strategy. selfish bastards.
    I would say Obama does want a shut down since he refuses to meet with the GOP
