    Seriously. The quality of poster here is on the massive downtrend the closer we get to the election.
    No, the assertion was that Congress did nothing.

    Congress passed several bills the President did not sign.

    In regards to the economy? Hello, seriously stay on subject.

    Christ sakes. We get any lower quality posters, I'm taking break till the election is over.

    No, the statement was that Congress did nothing. What he meant to say was that Congress didn't merely show up and rubberstamp Obama's crap.

    All three quotes. The assertion was that the GOP had no plan.

    Let's reexamine this for proof as you are lying.

    You replied to this: "I haven't seen any current proposals from the President with a $250K threshold since he had the meeting with Buffett and decided to go with the Buffett rule. Perhaps I missed it, could you provide a source?" From Catawba.

    That is CLEARLY a post discussing the economy. You replied "Obama doesn't have a plan, and never will. All he does is campaign against everyone else's."

    You really have to work on lying. We shouldn't be able to spot it that easily.

    I'll retract my statement if you admit you didn't read what Catawba said and just made up whatever you thought Catwaba said.

    Are you really saying this:

    "I haven't seen any current proposals from the President with a $250K threshold since he had the meeting with Buffett and decided to go with the Buffett rule. Perhaps I missed it, could you provide a source?"

    What YOU responded to, has nothing to do with taxes?

    Jesus. Tashah just shoot me now.

    He doesn't need to. It's common knowledge that capital gains are taxed at much lower rates than personal income tax. He also makes most of his money through capital gains, hence the lower tax rate. He's not gaming the system, the system was tailor made for him.

    If that were to be true, why then does he only pay 15%? The answer is, because he has CPA's, and lawyers and people who's job it is to utilize the existing tax code to lower his person tax rate. His tax rate is ALREADY higher ... yet he doesn't pay the higher rate. THAT is why he's a hypocrite.
    That's certainly a second way he'd be a hypocrite yes.
    No, you don't pay less based on how many lawyers you hire. He pays less cause most of his money comes from capital gains and not personal income from his job. If you went out and made the same amount of money as him through personal gains and investing you'd pay very close to the same tax rate. He's not gaming he system. If you think that him making money through capital gains is gaming the system then I would think you agree with me that we should tax capital gains income as personal income...

    They are not simply refusing to pay taxes. They are filing appeals on what they actually owe. The company thinks it was over taxed and they are following all the right moves to get it dealt with. Warren Buffett can't treat the company's money the same way he would treat his own money. That's not how the world works.
