    What your thread has pointed out, to me, is that our tax system needs a complete overhaul. Like throw it in the garbage and start over overhaul. (Like that's news. But Obama's 5-Minutes-To-File proclamation is a joke. 2009 Income Tax Instruction Booklet: 102 pages.
    The only way by which a Tax form can be completed in 5 minutes is to have an extremely simple Tax system, also the same rate applies over everything, whether Income or Sales.
    Think Flat Tax.
    The main problem with this form of tax is that it would decimate the manning levels at the IRS as well as render almost half a million Tax accountants unemployable, then think of all the Tax Lawyers who would become unemployable.

    Well, for one, you should probably look up "fascism" because that's actually a much more specific political philosophy than most people realize. Wbat do you base that statement on, about Biden?

    That said, the webstie that The Dane is pulling that stuff (assuming it's the one I'm thinking of) from seems to have a libertarian swing from what I could gather. They have a series of questions and allegedly answer them in the name of those candidates based on their public statements.

    I couldn't seem to find many options between "Hitler" and "Hippie Libertarian"

    80 billion in cuts? Please tell me this is a bad joke. Whoever believes this is beyond delusional and there is no hope for you.

    Obama is a serial liar, at this point you cant beleve one word the guy says but someone is trying to spread this kind of BS. Shame on you for going along with all the lies and trying to propagandize us with this crap.

    I don't take my news straight from the presidents mouth. Maybe that's why you don't really know whats going on but he cut taxes in 2010 for 97% of the population. Sorry if this doesn't agree with your liberal picture of him but facts are facts.

    Or he may make tons of info about people easy and ready for business to have access too. Sorta how way back when Bush word smithed spying into our America. By putting in blanket crap that says phone companies can give info to the government if it is easily and readily available. Then the companies make all of your text messages and conversations "easy and ready" for pluckin and one can argue spying has become legal with generalities. So basically all your needed tax info, and info about you ready for someone to access with a confirmation. Then have it take 4 and a half minutes to confirm your identity and BAM insta tax except a few basic questions. Or maybe he is just talking about the select few who have already been to HnR block and ready for express service next time

    ...you're aware that about a third of the stimulus package comes in the form of tax cuts, right?

    No, wait, obviously you weren't. You're basically stating that Obama is a liar, because the sky is in fact purple and not blue. The tax cuts already happened.

    Edit: Actually, it was adjusted on the employer withholding end, it turns out. So it's even easier for someone to be unaware that it even happened.
    Then another poster mentioned it effected paychecks by around $13/week. That really irritates me. That's your government manipulating you, yes? We want to give it to the peasants in dribs and drabs so they won't put it in the bank -- or actually pay off a bill with it. I'm not blaming Obama in particular for this -- our government plays these games allll the time.

    I don't usually complain about the bailout, but I will now. The banks and big business get billions in chunks...and the people paying for it get dribs and drabs...nothing helpful to them, only something to help the economy.
