    People who have and AGI of $50K, do in fact pay FIT. Sorry for not being precise. People who have a AGI less the $17K pay 10%, then the marginal rate up to $69K pays 15%. Where do you get your information?

    So if taxes are raised on these big companies what will prevent them from raising rates at the pump? You forget companies do not pay those rates but the consumer does. By raising taxes at all in this economy will cause things to only get worse. Just look at how well it worked for the Great Depression.

    No, you claimed that they didn't pay anything If you mispoke, then just say so

    And will you ever respond to the points that I and others have made about the regressive nature of payroll taxes, lowered rates on capital gains, estate taxes, etc?

    The rightwing should worry about all the unfunded spending they have done in the past before they start worrying about the future.

    FICA is used to buy Treasury bonds, that revenue goes to the Treasury. The same thing happens when China buys Treasury Bills from us.

    He has yet to post one link to support his many claims, many of which have been proven to be false or misleading

    Competition. Corps can not just raise their prices as they see fit. Corps are charging as much as they can under the circumstances. They don't belong in business if they aren't already maximizing their revenue.
