    Right, I am not poor, and I am also not greedy. The poor don't need more tax breaks, they need better education, more jobs, and a LEVEL PLAYING FIELD in the investment world....and then they can pay more in taxes...
    The rich, especially the unearned income rich, don't need more tax breaks. They can afford lawyers and lobbiests to get around the laws...

    Projected budget gap for year 2012-2013. amazing isn't it, here we are in 2010 and politicians know what is going to happen 2 -3 years later. Obama hasn't been right on any prediction so what makes you so sure that people projecting that "gap" will be right on this one?

    The passion you and others have for a failed ideology is absolutely incredible. It really is like a cult following where facts and reality have no place in your world.

    It isn't the role of the govt. to create jobs, it is the role of govt. to give individuals the incentive to create jobs. Liberals don't understand that concept.

    What does Obama have to do with the Texas State budget?

    hint: about as much as the price of tea in china does.

This is all about class warfare and nothing more.
    The wealth gap has been steadily widening for some time now. It's hard to garner sympathy for the top 2% when others are struggling to make ends meet.

    State income taxes are part of the reason, but certainly isn't the only reason. To refresh your memory, Texas is a right to work state, so no UNION requirements...

    Nothing, but the same people claiming that we are going to have a budget gap are similar to the ones that claimed the stimulus plan would cap unemployment at 8% and would grow the economy annually at 4%. You buy what these people tell you and the question is why when their predictions have never been right?

    Exactly as unions drive up costs. Too bad arrogant liberals don't steal "shamelessly" from TX and implement TX economic policy in their own states.

    Yes, it might mean a slightly smaller mansion for the rich if they have to pay a bit more in taxes....or even worse, they might have to lay off one of their undocumented illegal alien workers....

    Vehicle registration, hunting/fishing licenses, driver's licenses, etc.

    I have family in Texas.

    Why would businesses care what individual income taxes are? Perhaps it's something else.
