    We'll plug in numbers to make it easy $20 dollars an hour time and a half for over time .. total tax load of 50% (federal, SS, Medicare, and state taxes)

    What is his tax on 20 hours of over time ?? if I have it figured right it would be an additional $350 dollars .. . is that not equal to 10 hours of overtime pay ?
    Your total tax load is not 50% and if you work 20 hours of overtime, you make twice as much overtime than if you worked 10 hourse of overtime :duh:

    IOW, the rightwing lies, and when challenged, they sling slogans and more lies. I call it "retreat and repeat"

    So then why are you calling for tax hikes?

    Like I said, rightwingers have no principles. All they have is lies and slogans.

    Rightwing lies? Tell me what are the lies in the following:

    Obama economic results in 2011, .4% GDP and 1.3% GDP growth in 2011, 24+ million unemployed or under employed Americans in 2011, 4 trillion added to the debt in less than 3 years, and a downgrade of the U.S. credit rating. Rising Misery index 7.83 to 12.67. First President in U.S. History to have our credit downgraded on his watch!
    You claim to lean independent, now that is funny as there is nothing independent about your posts, all leftwing

    tell me how raising taxes puts 25 million unemployed and under employed Americans back to work? The only ones calling for tax increases are those liberals who haven't a clue and believe we have a revenue problem and not a spending problems. When you compromise with a liberal you always get tax increases but never spending cuts.

    A lot of good information in this op ed piece that liberals will ignored because of the author as they will never read the content. What is it about liberalism that creates such loyalty that logic and common sense mean nothing?

    Media, Left

    Many Breakthrough Drugs Come From Publicly Funded Research: Study
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Many? What do you think Pharma does with their R&D Money? 153 in 40 years. Is that all the breakthrough drugs we have had?
