    ah the Haymarket semantic game

    the ostrich defense

    that term has been used hundreds of thousands of times and even the IRS uses it to describe the estate taxes in the states that have them

    Does the name of George Bush II mean anything to you?

    Do the Bush tax cuts of 2001 and 2003 mean anything to you?

    Do you realize that 91% of the YES votes in Congress to pass those two tax cuts which created the 47% who do not pay federal income taxes came from REPUBLICANS?

    While you decide to attack the 47% at every possible convenient opportunity, it would be fair and just for you to extend some of your ire and contempt for the REPUBLICANS who created that mechanism.
    Bush wrote all 44 thousand pages of the tax code? I didn't even know that!

    I'm curious as to how many of that fourteen-hundred people are big dick politicos. Big dick politicos who insist that the world will come to an end if we don't raise taxes on the, "rich".

    Thank you... well 55% of the working population live on 30k or less a year...

    Not to be a dick but 30k is a decent income.
    You can buy a house on 30k a year.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Yea you can...because Fannie and Freddie are around....

    As for being a "decent income"... totally depends on where you are. 30 k is nothing in New York and LA... but plenty in rural Texas or the backroads of Mississippi. In general 30k is not decent... that is if you want healthcare insurance as well as a roof over your head and food on the table.

    and BFD that the rate was raised to 250K last year-I am not a banker

    and anytime you want to put some money up rather than constantly make snide comments about what you think I am, do so. Put up or shut up

    I tire of your constant attacks by someone who cannot handle the fact that I make more than he does
    You're wrong. Wrong. And wrong. The 400 Richest Americans Pay An 18% Tax Rate - Robert Lenzner - StreetTalk - Forbes

    Because of FICA taxes, and lower rates on non-work-earned income, millionaires pay a lower rate than does anyone making less than $200,000 a year. The effective tax rate on most millionaires is 22.4%. When you go to just the top 400 families, it's lowered to 18%.

    That is lower than someone who is making around $85,000.
