    Our elect representatives who support his view. He sadly minsunderstand how the government works, how it is suppose to work. We have taxsation WITH representation. That's what we fought the British for. We did not fight for no taxsation.

    I know where my money to the church goes, you don't seem to care where your money spent by the Federal Govt. on social programs goes but that is ok because it is all about spending in the name of compassion not compassionate results.

    Which representation and what is their role, local, state, Federal representation? Which one is best suited to solve local problems? Have you ever looked at the line items in the Federal Budget? You seem to believe Federal spending compassionate but local spending not so much. That is thinking with your heart not your brain.

    But, since you insist that Social Security is part of income tax, well, then the total is 82%.

    Karma's a bitch.

    Oh, and 47% of filers pay no income tax at all. As Enola says, "Calling Doctors Google, Bing and Google...."

    Here's my source: Yes, 47% of Households Owe No Taxes. Look Closer. - NYTimes.com (one of hundreds)

    Where's yours?
    Not part of income taxes. Part or taxes paid.

    No, that is not liberalism, that is the govt. You don't always get to have your money spent on what YOU want. Do you think I wanted MY money spent on nation building and the Iraq War? Spare me your faigned outrage.

    Liberalism has done such a "great" job selling the unified budget that all taxes go into one big pot thus long term obligations like SS and Medicare are ignored. In addition state and local taxes are also ignored by big Federal govt. supporting liberals. Before you start talking about tax increases I suggest you find out what the taxes we pay now are supposed to fund and then apply those taxes to the right expense.

    And yet you will elect Romney who will spend just like the rest and you elected Bush twice who DID spend just like all the rest. Again, spare us your feigned outrage on spending about spending. When your side does it, you re-elect them.

    Please try to understand, no is claiming raising taxes puts people to work. So, don't be silly. I am saying tax cuts don't put them to work either. Government does not control the economy. Sorry, it doesn't work that way. Jobs will come when the cycle moves around again to where there is enough reason to believe people will buy that business sees reason to grow. The government cannot control that. It is a mistake in reasoning on your part to look to governemnt to fix this problem.

    I do when I get to keep more of it, something you have a problem understanding. You don't seem to have a clue as to what your taxes are supposed to fund. Why don't you find out and get back to me then answer my question, what does a bureaucrat in D.C. know about a problem in your local community?

    Your money should go to national defense per the Constitution. You don't like spending it on wars, neither do I but there is evil in the world that wants you dead. My family members served in Iraq, did you?

    Not sure what this has to do with what I said, but let's try to be clear. People do pay into SS.
