    Taxes, Income Tax, Tax Rates, Tax updates Business News, Economy

    Does anyone else see just how shallow this all is? First, there is no place to go. Second, consider that we have millions of men aged 18-45 willing to die for our country, yet we have certain individuals that we are discussing herein that find American citizenship a little too pricey, say inconvenient to their balance sheets. Scum! Pity the foo that even has pity on these maggots.
    Why should anyone choose to pay more taxes?
    You call them scum, I just see them taking advantage of a greater opportunity.

    When people change states for these reasons, do you consider them scum as well?
    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.

    So how do you propose, or what is President Obama plan, to get everyone off welfare? And please don't give me the current "tax the rich" slogan. Because we all know this is just a slogan for the stupid who'll buy into the rich not paying their "fair share". It's gonna take the middle class and those 48% not paying taxes to chip in to get us out of this pit we're in.

    What is your plan and/or the Presdent's plan to accomplish this "welfare free" America?

    America does not own rich American citizens. People should be allowed to leave if they want to. If they want to leave, because they want a better business climate, or lower taxes, then they should be allowed to.

    Do we send back rich people who leave Venezuela, because they don't want to fund the corrupt government. Do Venezuelans in America, have to pay Venezuelan taxes. No, they don't because the US government are not complying with Venezuela. So why do we expect Americans, as the only western country in the world, to do the same. Only oppressive countries try to prevent their own citizens from leaving.

    populist garbage

    what put the country in a recession was too many people who think the government has a duty to take care of them
    leading to too much government, too much control etc

    It's certainly a double standard.
    When others come here, we'll welcome them with open arms, especially if they have money.
    If some leave, they're "scum."

    I seriously question the principles and logic some people use.

    i have repeatedly and frequently stated that I want ALL Americans earning dollar one to pay more taxes. And that includes the 47% currently not paying federal income tax. I will search for my prior posts where I posted actual percentage increases and put them up here.

    Basically I would have ALL American earners paying at least 5% of their income in federal income tax. Current middle class taxpayers would see about a 3% increase. Upper earners would see about a 5% increase. I would end most deductions for all. I would end the inheritance tax and the capital gains taxes and simply treat them as normal income and apply the appropriate tax rate schedule. I would pop the cap on FICA limits and have ALL Americans pay FICA on all of their earnings instead of just the 93% who now do.
