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.
    The point being that while Bush had the lowest income taxes in history, Obama shaved off a slight bit more. Among other tax cuts, of course. So we come around back to the original point that people protesting that their taxes are too high because Obama raised them are delusional.

    Yeah, people are stupid idiots and the TPC is non-partisan and democrat administrations lower taxes.

    under Bush the top of the tax pyaramid carried a much higher burden of the total tax burden then almost any time in history

    Yes, my post was off topic. I've been known to ramble. ;-)

    You're right, there was a brief period at the inception of the income tax where it was lower. Restatement, some of the lowest income taxes in history.

    "Instead of having all of us pay our fair share, we've got over $1 trillion worth of loopholes in the corporate tax code,"
    That's a bull**** statement of the century - no one pays their "fair" share. . . it'll be less "fair" after this than before it, you know . . . it's not "fair" when the majority of people don't pay various taxes . . . and some pick up *all* that slack.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Is there some particular dollar amount that is supposed to come from each type of tax?

    This is why no one takes you or Barry seriously...... this is from 2006, but I doubt things have gotten better.

    Adding to this figure the 15 million households and individuals who file no tax return at all, roughly 121 million Americans—or 41 percent of the U.S. population—will be completely outside the federal income tax system in 2006.

    So if only 59% of the US. population pay any taxes at all, how did Barry cut taxes for 97% of the population? Is this the new math that is taught in school these days?

    Here's a tip that might help you:

    Not paying income taxes is not the same thing as not paying any taxes.
