    Now its two claims waiting to be substantiated.
    You didn't ask me, but you told me yours, why? Were you bragging or complaining? I also did 10 years reserves, and I get a military retirement that is taxed.

    Look up tax rates in 1964, explain how our economy was doing so well then.

    As poor as I was for so many years, I have never escaped paying income taxes. Not only should we repeal the Bush Tax cuts for the rich, we should raise the current rates at every level. That, along with budget cuts in social and military industry entitlements (including foreign aid), should help with deficits and debt.

    sadly no one is talking about cutting taxes for the rich

    all that is being discussed is keeping in place tax rates that have been around for almost a decade and the top rate that has been the norm for most of the last thirty years

    Are you going to answer MY question or are you going to give me more of your bumper sticker fertilizer?
