    • Those 71 million who don't pay any income tax ought to be paying a lousy $200 a year to live in the USA. Seems damned reasonable.
    • Corporations should have to pay a minimum tax. The idea that GE paid no Federal income tax is ludicrous.
    • And that fact leads to reforming our tax policies across the board...getting rid of deductions that bring millionaire earners down into the same bracket of someone who earns $100K.
    • People shouldn't be able to deduct mortgage interest on their second home.
    • People shouldn't be able to deduct real estate taxes on as many homes as they own.
    • People who can afford to own $100K automobiles ought to pay a luxury tax....on that and many other luxury items they buy.
    you're pointing the way, friend

    we are so far under, we're gonna have to do everything---soc sec age, soc sec pay-ins, soc sec bennies, means testing

    no 3 of the 4 will do

    for example

    medicaid's first step is to block it to the states, it's killing em, and its mandates are untenable, it's not working at the federal level, the states must be freed up to work out solutions

    Not the nambie pambie smoke and mirrors Obama promises.
    he thinks he's sleight of hand

    but he doesn't have anything up his sleeve

    I liked his speech, and I hope that the plan he laid out comes to fruition. Alot of the elements of it that he spoke about is what I have wanting them to do for a while now.

    I know. Communicating your ideas clearly is so horrible. Damn that Reagan for doing that.

    yes, he's GOOD at that

    it's his TRUE HEART

    so much of the rest is legerdemain

    except for his mantra of INVESTMENT, which means MORE spending, in his now famous fourfold platform---education, student loans, the color green (NOT the color of money) and of course infrastructure

    know the man
