    Who pays for govt. created jobs? Govt. created jobs that do nothing but create dependence and debt.

    You?
    I made 40 grand last year, after expense and paid a $7,000 tax bill. I can't afford to pay more taxes. And before you say anything, I'm a business owner and can't qualify for all those tax breaks that normal folks receive and now, Obama wants me to pay more taxes, while he's murdering the industry in which I make my living.

    But hey! Keep preaching those plans that have already failed and see where it gets you.
    Interesting how liberals are so passionate about people not getting more take home pay, explain why? Anyone that believes that people keeping more of their own money is negative is foolish for that does stimulate the economy and thus jobs are created. Are you that hard core left that you want massive expansion of govt. and promotion of the Obama agenda?

    "Compassionate liberals" really don't care about how much Obama hurts the people for it is all about feelings, not substance.

    I'll give you two that I'm familiar with:

    1. Safety harnesses are now required by any roofer working more than 6' above the ground. Any one that has ever worn a safety harness will tell you that they create more of a safety hazard than by not having one. Besides, every contractor I see would hit the ground before the harness caught because they leave a lot of slack in them so they can get their work done. If it was done correctly, harnesses would be required on roofs beyond a certain roof slope such as greater than 8:12.

    2. The EPA now requires that all contractors renovating or repairing a house built before 1978 to be lead paint certified. It doesn't matter if they've tested the paint and found that it does not contain lead. They still have to send their men to an 8 hour course that costs $300 a person. Another way to increase the cost of doing business.

    So are you changing your tune that government cannot create jobs? Now you are moving the goal posts and asking new questions.

    The Libbos know that they can't make everyone rich, so they're working hard to make everyone poor. It's called, "social justice".

    The government didn't create those jobs. The private sector did.

    Feel free to correct me if I am wrong, but are you not the person who got a big refund for an amount greater than you paid in last year or possible the year before that one?

    pish. so what? a person making 250 k will be affected very little, really. it's the effective tax rate, silly.


    Tax Rate Schedule X, Internal Revenue Code section 1(c)]
    10% on taxable income from $0 to $8,500, plus
    15% on taxable income over $8,500 to $34,500, plus
    25% on taxable income over $34,500 to $83,600, plus
    28% on taxable income over $83,600 to $174,400, plus
    33% on taxable income over $174,400 to $379,150, plus
    35% on taxable income over $379,150.
