    nope--we are going to get patently screwed over. People under 250 K to about 80K are going to get latently screwed.

    Re: Poll: Most Tea Party Supporters Say Their Taxes Are Fair

    Most people don't think that Federal Income taxes are too high. Effective tax rates for federal income tax payers are fairly low across the board. The complaints on federal income taxes generally stem from how much of a pain in the ass it is to file because of our complex and inefficient tax code.

    When most people complain about high taxes, they are generally complaining about their taxes at the state and local levels, usually property, personal property, and sales taxes.

    That's not a fair system.
    That's true. I've been there. It sure hurts people trying to start their own businesses or work for themselves when they can't find a job.

    The difficulty in getting private health insurance policies hurts alot too. (That's been fixed though).

    I'm definitely in that 80-250K range, and I got the $800. I don't see anything in the stimulus bill that excludes people making over 250K:

    link

    The house has approved the $787 billion stimulus package (even without Republican support), and the result includes a $400 per-worker tax credit for 2009 and 2010. The tax credit means the government will take a little less out of your check each week toward taxes, and has been estimated to be an extra $13 in your check each week for the rest of 2009, and around $7.70 per check throughout 2010. If you are self-employed like me, you will be able to adjust your quarterly tax filings to account for the credit.
    Maybe you found a source saying that the over $250 K filers don't qualify.

    My property tax is the most unfair tax there is.

    No more pre-existing conditions, the ability to buy it on the exchanges and get the same competitive prices as group coverage, the ability to get subsidies if necessary. Takes away pretty much all the barriers to buying a private policy.

    That's a link?

    In computing, a hyperlink (or link) is a reference to a document that the reader can directly follow, or that is followed automatically. The reference points to a whole document or to a specific element within a document. Hypertext is text with hyperlinks. Such text is usually viewed with a computer. A software system for viewing and creating hypertext is a hypertext system. To hyperlink (or simply to link) is to create a hyperlink. A user following hyperlinks is said to navigate or browse the hypertext.

    Now that's a link.
