    and where do they get that money

    how much do they use in government services on the average

    minimum wage is something most people get out of the way by the time they are out of school

    do you have a duty to pay for what you use? or do you demand that others pay more for what you want?


    Did it ever occur to you that if most people did not have artificially low income taxes because the rich have high income taxes, they might be less likely to demand more government?

    so the FICA funds have never ever been co-mingled with other government tax revenues?

    I'm familiar with rhetorical questions. From occasionally frequenting venues such as this one, I'm also familiar with weasel-words and their use by intellectual wannabes in an attempt to camouflage their own very serious deficits and shortcomings.

    Yada, yada. The tax code is complicated because the economy is complicated. What do you care in the tax code comprises 65,000 pages if only 20 of them apply to you?

    Yet the 10 richest have more wealth than the bottom 50% of americans... I don't need you to prove anything...

    find your tax loophole so you can relax...
    so you admit that the top one percent pay almost 40% of the income tax YET THEY ONLY MAKE 22% of the income. We are dealing with INCOME taxes not wealth taxes. You do understand the difference or is that too much to ask?

    No need to pretend in most cases.

    Odd that you are able to refute so pitifully little of it then.

    your posts do not indicate you are smarter than most of the people on this board.
    however your posts clearly pretend that you are
