The racist faction is huge with the bagger parties and that hasn't been hidden very well at all. It's only partially hidden with weak protests of denial. If they really wanted to stay faithful to an agenda of some sort of economics they would have nipped the racism in the bud. They didn't because they knew all along that it would alienate far too much of their support.
That's understanding it! All that's left is the debate on whether or not it can succeed with that sort of background motivation. I believe that neither racism or supplyside economics can ever be a recipe for success.
And how do you understand it?
If that isn't clear enough, the federal income tax rates quoted each year by the IRS incorporates the payroll tax. . .
2013 Tax Rate Schedules: Marginal Ordinary Income Tax Rates for 2013
The fact that the federal govt. splits the income tax into payroll taxes and a "federal withholding tax" is irrelevant. As a famous Founding Father of the Constitution once said, and as any Libertarian worth her salt knows, a tax is a tax.
Finally, td doesn't need any help from you; he's perfectly capable of sounding hilarious by himself w/his inability to back up anything he posts, including and up to his latest "95%" fantasy, which he got from his official (and only) source. . .

Furthermore, any claim on the equitability of the federal tax system (i. e. the notion that the upper 5% pay the most taxes) would only be credible if it were based on the total federal tax burden incurred by everyone, NOT just a portion of that tax.
Claiming that the upper 5% pays the most taxes by excluding that portion of the tax bill incurred mostly by the lower 95% is therefore meaningless, i. e. something rush limbaugh would say.

Now, you...with all your drivel about supply-side economics and racism...well, let's just say that I see you as someone spouting off with ultra-left nonsense.
Perhaps this link will help you understand them. http://www.teaparty-platform.com I don't see anything in there about supply-side economics or racism.

Limbaugh isn't like Palin in that he is smart enough to modify and temper his message to make it suit the times. He obviously will have to as the bagger movement begins to struggle more to exist. With Bush3 taking on Cruz it's obvious that the invitation to the fight is out there now. Too early for the baggers because they just don't have the power yet. Chances are they never will now because Cruz decided to go for all the marbles way too early.
teatards, OTOH, are just morons who like to play w/guns (i. e. support the 2nd Amendment) but otherwise favor large, wasteful, federal budgets to bomb the gummint's manufactured boogeymen in the ME as well as well as a large big-brotherish nanny state that supervises reproductive tracts and bedrooms.
