    The house of cards known as trickle down economics already collapsed, what you see happening now is the nation rebuilding from the ruble left in the wake.

    do you realize how STUPID your post is? if the top 5% pay more than HALF THE FEDERAL INCOME TAX a tax cut is going to mean that 5% gets more cuts than those who pay ALMOST NOTHING.


    Turtle reply to everything is your stupid because I disagree with you with nothing to back it up!

    More hyperbole, from the person who thinks the country should walk away from its debt owed to Social Security. Don't they call people like that deadbeats?

    By slicing the top rate on dividends and long-term capital gains from 28 percent to 15 percent the wealthy benefited much more than the small reduction in taxes that was given to the middleclass by lowering the income tax rate on all the income brackets.

    The tax cuts enacted at the urging of President George W. Bush magnified what CRS calls the “disequalizing” impact of this shift. The 1986 tax reform eliminated the gap between the ordinary and capital gains rates. The gap began to widen again during President Bill Clinton’s second term, but the Bush tax cuts of 2003 blew it wide open by slicing the top rate on dividends and long-term capital gains from 28 percent to 15 percent. The tax code as of 2006 was still progressive, in that top earners paid a greater share of their income to Washington than everyone else. But thanks largely to the more favorable treatment of investment income, the code was significantly less progressive in 2006 than it was in 1996, CRS found.

    You say it in every post, you call those who expect the rich who have done so well at the expense of SS to repay their debt, moochers, or parasites, etc, etc.
