    My company doesn't make a million a year, thanks to Obama, but I did get the same tax cut that every other corporation got.

    How about you tell how much you did pay in taxes, last year? Because, hey, if you're not actually writing a check to the IRS every April, you don't have a whole lot to bitch about.

    .
    Those making over a million appreciate their annual $91,000 tax break you help provide them each year! And you do it so happily while your business gets worse and their profits go up. That is so selfless of you! You would at least think they would give you a gold star or something!

    Yes, I just posted an illustration of it above, it is the system that hasn't worked for the last thirty years, but some evidently are still waiting on their trickle.

    even with the 91K "break", they still pay more taxes than you will ever dream of. what's your point?
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    So, are you actually trying to parrot the same dollar amount, in the hopes that people will believe that large corporations got $91,000 tax cut? Wait, tax cut, or tax break? There's a difference.

    Care to tell us how much you paid in taxes?

    Ok, well obviously that means you don't have the first ****ing clue what trickle down economics is.

    Here goes: I'm in the turcking business. Before Obama cocked things up, I used to pay a man to bust my tires. Now, I do it myself and he doesn't get that money anymore. I used to take my trucks to a mechanic for everything. Now, I do alot of minor stuff myself and the guy I used to use doesn't get that money. He went out of business and had to go get a job with Peterbilt. Get the picture?
