    I don't know why everybody is complaining about $60B that is going to trickle down to us.

    Sadly, I agree. Sadly though.

    Honestly, I don't trust either party to solve any problem. I think they both do the same essentially, serve the same. The status quo, the Republocrats whom proliferate it, are crap.

    I wish I could disagree. I really do.

    Loophole

    1. A way of escaping a difficulty, especially an omission or ambiguity in the wording of a contract or law that provides a means of evading compliance.

    There is no law addressing this, period.
    Your cute little dictionary ignores the political reality that corporations and others use their money and power to get parts of the tax code written which intentionally and deliberately create loopholes. Honestly Perry, you make me feel like I am trying to explain where babies really come from.

    here is an extensive list of intentionally and deliberately created loopholes within laws and tax codes that are designed purposely to allow one to evade taxation



    an example of intentionally created loopholes

    and more

    The Solution: Close Tax Loopholes by Eli Sanders - Seattle News - The Stranger, Seattle's Only Newspaper

    and this

    Big Oil?s Lust for Tax Loopholes

    and even intentionally created loopholes for the middle class come under fire

    What about MIDDLE-CLASS Loopholes?

    click on this link and then on the FULL LIST to provide a list of over 80 different state and national bills intentionally creating loopholes which have as its purpose tax avoidance by design and intent

    GE owns Obama, he does their bidding. When I see the Justice Department bringing legitimate criminal charges against these companies, we can talk. Until then, the whiners need to STFU. Show me where they are doing something illegal. In my opinion, the US Govt is doing things that are worse than illegal.....they are unconstitutional. And those folks that are supporting unconstitutional actions, because something is considered legal, have nothing to complain about.

    I have come to realize that many of the corporate cheerleaders on political forums, are not rich and arent any better off than I or many middleclass working class americans...why do they defend corporations and the rich ? because they think they are supposed too because they are Teaparty GOP talking points...I truly believe they are no clue about what corporations and the rich have done to them in the last 20 yrs....

    Well, they really don't. But they still believe that if one just works hard, they can be like the super rich and don't realize that the super rich are never going to let normal people into their club. Also, it seems that many middle class people vote with the rich against their own interests because they want to be like the rich. Since the rich is who they aspire to be, the middle class may think that if they vote for pro-rich policies, it might make it easier for them to get in the door.

    (Please note, this is just my personal speculation.)
