    Yes, you focus on the error and ignore the rest of the substance. That is what happens with liberals who are always looking for the gotcha moment. I am still waiting for how those IOU's are going to be funded and what that does to inflation?

    Sorry, but you really need to grow up and stop playing "victim" because the govt. asks you to pay what you can afford.
    The govt. doesn't give a damn what i can afford nor do they have a clue as to what my financial obligations are. I am not a victim, you are, a victim of misinformation and false promises. It isn't the Federal government's responsibility to pay for your personal responsibility issues. You have been brainwashed by liberal rhetoric that appeals to your heart by by-passing your brain.

    Re: State of the Union Address

    The following is projections of Non-Taxpayers for 2011



    I want to make clear that there is difference between PAY NO TAXES and PAY NO FEDERAL INCOME TAX (FIT). ALL INDIVIDUAL who receive a W-2 form each year will show two forms of taxes that EVERY TAXPAYER MUST PAY regardless of their income. Those are SOCIAL SECURITY and MEDICARE contributions deducted from payrolls.

    TurtleDude and Conservative and some others in this forum constantly complain about either the 47%'ers or "half the taxpayers" PAY NO TAXES and that claim is distorted and an inaccurate claim.

    So, lets get down to the nitty-gritty, shall we? Who are these mysterious people who "allegedly - and using TD's term" don't pay taxes -- besides roughly half of the United States' taxpaying population?

    More importantly, how do they manage to do it?

    • 31 Percent of nonpaying American households making $10,000 or less per year in 2010. An American household of any size making this amount of money, including just one person, is automatically under the poverty threshold.

      61 Percent of nonpaying American households making $20,000 or less per year.

      87 Percent of nonpaying American households making $40,000 or less per year.

      MORE INFORMATION AND FACTS

      $22,050 is the amount that he U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' 2009 use to define the poverty threshold, for a family with two children living in the 48 contiguous states or the District of Columbia.

      1964: The last year the minimum standard of living defined as below the poverty level was updated, for the purpose of government definitions. A number of things that are required by job-seekers and at-home workers, and that are considered vital parts of American life now, were not included because they did not exist -- things such as computers, cellphones, and Internet access.

      One proposal for what the poverty line at $29,600 for a family of four should be reset to, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. The proposal corrects for a number of statistical quirks in the original, including the assumption that all senior citizens would eat less.

      $11,500 is the standard income tax deduction for a married couple with two children. The deduction is $9,500 for a couple and $1,000 for each child, as of the tax law change in 2003.

      $5,036 is the allowed Earned Income Tax Credit granted to a family with two children, according to the 2010 IRS 1040 form. The EITC is a tax break granted to people who work for a living, which grants substantially more to families with children.

      16.3 Percent of their incomes that the bottom 20 percent of American earners paid in all forms of taxes combined, on average, in 2010. Some taxes, like state, local, sales, and payroll taxes, take a larger percentage of poor people's income than they do the top 1 percent's.

      26.9 Percent of America's net worth owned by the entire bottom 90 percent of American earners, including home equity.

    169. Registration Tax

    170. Vehicle Sales Tax

    171. Wagering Tax (Tax on Gambling Winnings)

    172. Waste Vegetable Oil (WVO) Fuel Tax

    173. Water Rights Fee

    174. Watercraft Registration Tax

    175. Waterfowl Stamp Tax

    176. Well Permit Tax

    177. Workers Compensation Tax

    JUST TO NAME A FEW WAYS WE'RE TAXED....

    STAY TUNED TO MY NEXT POST for more on why people don't Federal Income Tax.
    What seems to be total ignorance and distortion is the statement that I said that 47% of the people pay no taxes when the reality is I accurately stated that 47% of the income earning households pay NO FEDERAL INCOME TAXES. You seem to like far too many, brainwashed into the liberal belief that all money goes into one pot and that specific taxes for specific purposes is irrelevant. The unified budget process has been sold to people like you.

    Every tax you listed is a use tax. Please learn what FIT funds and then ask yourself why any income earning family doesn't pay something in FIT. Stop reading what you want to believe and look at what was actually posted. Complete distortion is the act of a desparate liberal.

    He has had a lot of practice at it, he started campaigning for the office he now holds the day he took his job in the State Senate of Illinois and hasn't stopped since. This campaigner in chief has fooled a lot of people with is campaign rhetoric, too bad these people ignore the failed results.

    When the substance is in fundamental error, there is nothing left to focus upon.

    So they get to keep more of what they earn and are likely to spend. Is that a problem?

    The focus should be on the cost to the American people for having 2.5 trillion dollars in unfunded IOU's
