    This is another completely absurd statement. Both parties have written plenty of "loopholes" in the tax code.

    No it's not. The sixteenth amendment which created the original income tax was written by Democrats, they were the one's who created the IRS, as well the capital gains rules were written by Democrats and so was the Alternative Minimum Tax which is punitive towards the middle class and small businesses.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Where do you think the party started? Yeah thought so. A Democrat is a Democrat, only the accent changes.

    Creating the income tax doesn't constitute creating a loophole in the income tax!

    as well the capital gains rules were written by Democrats and so was the Alternative Minimum Tax which is punitive towards the middle class and small businesses.
    Capital gains, huh? In general, Democrats want to tax them like regular income, Republicans want a LOOPHOLE for them.

    The AMT CLOSES loopholes. Duh.

    Yet in those years that the GOP had the majority in congress and a Republican president, they didn't try to repeal any of what the DEMS had done....

    See, this shows just how profoundly ignorant you are about this issue. Please, please go educate yourself about history.

    The Democratic party was formally split into two parties just before the Civil War. They actually ran two different candidates for President in 1860. Their differences persisted right up until the 1960s and 1970s, when civil rights finally drove Southern conservatives to the GOP. Until then, there was essentially only one party in the South. Are you saying most people in the South between 1865 and 1965 was a liberal because most were Democrats?

    Political parties in the U.S. are very broad. There are (still) conservative Democrats and liberal Republicans, and there were alot more of each until the 1960s.

    I've already provided a link about southern Democrats. Read it and stop embarassing yourself.

    Except for the fact that they wrote them in. So you only read between the lines when you need to restructure your arguments don't you? That's a pretty dishonest tactic.

    That is a foolish statement, why don't you do some historical analysis and get back to me on that. BTW, you do know that the IRS and CPA lobbies are some of the largest political contributors in the U.S. right? And they back both parties heavily as a hedge.

    The AMT CLOSES loopholes. Duh.
    No it doesn't, it replaces the income tax for people who own property but do not draw an income directly from earnings, it subjects small businesses assets to taxable value if the the owner pays himself directly from profits. You really don't have a clue about economics, tax, and finance do you?

    You are correct about that with a few minor exceptions and I don't have a defense for it. Then again I am more of a constitutionalist than a Republican.
