    If you feel taxation is theft, as you constantly whine, why don't you hire a good lawyer and take your case before the conservative Supreme Court.
    Geez the rich had to benefit the most since they were paying most of the taxes

    That's what happens when you make most of the income. Did you just learn how taxation works?

    Is this your substitute for a rebuttal to the study by the CBO that found the rich benefited more from the Bush tax cuts, or is this your way of saying they were right?

    you just don't get it

    when the rich pay most of the taxes they by definition are going to benefit more than the 49 percent who don't pay any of the taxes that are being CUT

    Its as idiotic as whining that when Lexus extends its warranty coverage those who own Infinitis did not benefit

    You are the one that doesn't get it. A person has to make a living wage to pay federal income taxes, are you endorsing a living wage for the working poor?

    you are just posting moronic rants now

    you whined that the Bush tax cuts helped the rich the most

    I pointed out the rich pay most of the taxes that were being cut

    you then diverted and whined that the FIT was not the only tax people pay

    I noted that the taxes BUSH CUT were mainly paid by the rich

    and you started whining

    Now we have the BS about living wages and other crap

    if you income redistributionists want everyone to benefit the same from tax cuts then everyone should be paying the same amount of taxes

    its like cbo has a mental deficiency that does not allow variables in math or any form of logic to be applied to it.this is the same cbo that said stimulous spending was bad for the economy,the same cbo that had to redo the math for the costs of obamacare many times,despite in that time no major changes in its policy.

    this is the same cbo that has used the same estimate for the bush tax cuts,variable free,and still uses 2001 gfp for its estimates,and ignores any economic growth over time in its estimates.cbo's estimates are so bad most of the time its like they go to a psychic to ask answers,write them down,then go have wild parties.


    but please post some real evidence,not some we got it from cbo and cbo cant back their math but trust,weve been wrong on everything else but this time we are right,we are so confident of it we wont show you the math,just our answer.
