    What is it about the signs that are prejudiced? Again still waiting for you to explain why 53% of the income earners are paying all the taxes and rather than find a way to collect from the other 47% you want to tax that 53% higher. Isn't that buying votes?
    Theblaze skewed the data, or didn't look up the data at all to make their case.

    That’s the portion of American households that owe no income tax for 2009. The number is up from 38 percent in 2007, and it has become a popular talking point on cable television and talk radio. With Tax Day coming on Thursday, 47 percent has become shorthand for the notion that the wealthy face a much higher tax burden than they once did while growing numbers of Americans are effectively on the dole.


    Neither one of those ideas is true. They rely on a cleverly selective reading of the facts. So does the 47 percent number.

    So you are telling me that the 66 million people earning income cannot pay something in FIT for the services they receive?

    It's a Giant board. So active You can actually get All your news [And Religion/predominantly Catholic] there. A post-a-second. Headlines from everywhere on the planet.
    Use the keyword search for your interest.
    It's a parallel universe.. parallel to FOX News that is.

    With coordinated effort, they actually can/do "Freep" a Poll on a News website and effect the results significantly.
    Just one of the many reasons why online interactive polls are completely worthless.

    As has been pointed out the 81-82 recession was worse than the 2007-2009 recession for those that are working now and were working then due to the cost of living at the time. The unemployed are going to be hurt regardless of the recession period but what makes the 81-82 worse is the affect it had on those employed thus the misery index at the time vs when obama took over. Obama's problem however is that 2 1/2 years after taking office the misery index continues to rise where as 2 1/2 years after the 81-82 recession ended the misery index was declining. JAR reflects the leadership of Reagan and the lack of leadership of Obama. You continue to buy the rhetoric and ignore the results. My bet is that since you never managed anything you believe one can delegate responsibility. Obama wanted the responsibility of the job now, like you, blames everyone else for his failures.

    Where are you coming up with this 66 million number since we are talking about HOUSEHOLDS on this 47 - 53% thing.

    140 million income earners according to BLS X 47%=65.8 million workers paying ZERO NET FIT with many actually getting money back.

    Why should they? Most pay for services they receive through other taxes. Also, the article say that it's 47% of households which pay no taxes. Are you including households with no income earners in your calculation of 66 million?
