    I DARE you to respond to it point by point. Do you accept the challenge, or will you run away?

    Here are the points I made:







    Go ahead.
    I will be running away as I have no interest in discussing anything with you. Your far superior self proclaimed intelligence makes any discussion impossible and none of what you posted has anything to do with the thread topic.

Much of that increase results from two aspects of current law that have been subject to recent policy changes: the growing impact of the alternative minimum tax (AMT) and, even more significantly, various provisions originally enacted in the Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2001 (EGTRRA) and the Jobs and Growth Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2003 (JGTRRA) and modified by subsequent legislation, which are scheduled to expire by December 31, 2010.
    Which is a damn sight different than you present it.
    I have highlighted the quote in your post to illustrate my paraphrasing as well as the reasoning thereof. Please explain to everyone
    a) the lie that you claim exists between these two versions, and
    b) how it has any material effect on the fact that the CBO projection you trotted out is based upon the Bush Tax Cuts expiring at the end of 2010 (despite your prior claim to the contrary).

    It has nothing to do with what I posted.

    That remains to be the case.

    I'm not even sure why you posted it in response to what I posted since it was nothing but a robospam non-sequitur.


    But I suppose, that's what you do. It's who you are.

    I do know what it says, and there, in English words, in black and white, are the parts you ignored and snipped to get the part you think you like, and make it appear it's the only thing the paragraph referred to.

    Just like you did with the sentence about funding the war.

    nothing you posted has anything to do with the thread topic but does show you have a continual case of BDS

    1. Based upon a reading and understanding of the entire paragraph, do you think that the "alternative minimum tax (AMT)" is significant?

    2. Do you know what the "Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2001 (EGTRRA) and the Jobs and Growth Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2003 (JGTRRA)" are colloquially known as ?

    Perhaps what I posted is not relevant to the thread but at least it was relevant to the post I was responding to -- something you can't claim as your post had nothing to do with what I posted. It was just your typical robospam which you post every time you realize you can't refute what someone else says.

    You are so correct, showing that Obama has a net job loss, net employment loss, rising discouraged workers, a higher unemployment rate has absolutely nothing to do with employment or unemployment which of course IS related to the Thread Topic. Amazing how facts get in the way of your own opinions

    Exactly how reading impaired are you, Con? I said your post had nothing to do with what I posted.
