    Yeah,lets gouge them at the same giant rate that GE pays.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Just as you have faith in the government, right?

    Some policies do, at least for some treatments and some cancers. You might want to actually read your own policy some time.

    Oh shut it. GE is and has been in Obama's camp from the beginning. Try Exxon, they pay 45%.

    Having had a miscarriage is a preexisting condition. Twisted logic ttwtt.

    "IRS may need to hire as many as 16,500 additional
    auditors, agents and other employees to investigate and
    collect billions in new taxes from Americans"

    http://republicans.waysandmeans.hous...wer_Report.pdf



    Its a house ways and means official report. You do not need a crystal ball to read the writing on the wall.


    Leaving all that out...What do you think 15k+ IRS agents will sit around doing in the next ten years?

    An expansion of 100 is enough to be concerned about.
    Thank you

    You had a miscarriage? How does a guy have a miscarriage?

    Uh, Exxon pays around 15%.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    -- Adam Smith
