Forget that when marginal rates were higher, there were so many loopholes, that the net taxes paid (all aspects) was lower than it is now. Forget that with such as NAFTA etc., we can't compete, in large part because unions ****ed it all up so bad. Never mentions a word.

    Bobby is all "blame the rich". Same liberal BS. Different day.

    You sure have winger talking points down pat donít you?

    According to CBO data, 10 percent of all households pay no net federal taxes. Besides the 47 percent figure youíre quoting is an anomaly that reflects unique circumstances of 2009.

    Is your Faux outrage limited to the poor or is it also directed at the two thirds of corporations that pay no taxes as well? Remember, thanks to our activist Supreme, Corporations(Citizens United) are people too.


    Forget that we pay folks for close to 3 years to not work (get what you pay for Bobby).
    Yet during Reagan terms we paid people 3.5 years of unemployment, Ford 3.2 years, george the second, it was 3 years. Were you this outraged then?


    Forget that when marginal rates were higher, there were so many loopholes, that the net taxes paid (all aspects) was lower than it is now.
    The federal tax rate, is the lowest itís been in 60 years.

    Forget that with such as NAFTA etc., we can't compete, in large part because unions ****ed it all up so bad.
    We canít competes with sweatshops in china, India, or wherever the multinationals can find that they can pay children as young as seven or eight years old to make their widgets. Thanks to both parties for this gift.

    As you set the tone, it would seem you have stupidity down pat.

    I addressed Reich. You snipe.

    47% of households in Amerca pay no Federal Income Tax. It is not an anomaly.

    One more stupid snipe comeback like that and you go to Ignore, and deservedly so.

    Did you have to get your keyboard drunk first before you pulled that line out? Seriously? It was the Bush tax cuts when Bush was president...its the Obama tax Cuts now. He signed it...he owns it. The unwillingness of some of y'all to acknowledge that dems are as worthless and corrupt as republicans is staggering. Talk about your massive denial...

    I guess this lame reply means you have nothing but add homs to add to the conversations eh?

    You labour under the massive delusion that I am against all taxes

    I am merely against taxes being used to buy the votes of the parasites

    a marxist gay midget who whines about the rich is worthless. He wants to call the top one percent super rich, that alone disqualifies him from being taken seriously.

    So... being a Multi-Billionaire doesn't count as super rich?

    Please, pray tell. What DOES count as being super rich?

    you apparently didn't read very well

    the top one percent starts at about 350K a year
    hardly super rich
