How much do oil companies really pay in taxes? - The Washington Post
I am fortunate I make a good income. I pay out the a$% in taxes, and it pisses me off.
I agree that I should not pay more, but because I am not big business or big oil, I don't that luxury.
I will make sacrifices to get the debt balanced, but if I have to, so do ALL Americans. If this means that granny pays a co pay on medicare, then that's what it means. If it means I don't get SSI or Medicare until I am 70, then that is what it means. But, if I am going to make these sacrifices, so should those few that the GOP are protecting by not closing loop holes and substadies (sic).
Hey, budget crisis, EVERYTHING on top of the table. NO Transparency.

It is better to die on your feet than to live on your knees.
AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
