    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Re: Dem vs Rep Tax Cut Plan in Graph form!

    Oddly enough... Ive witnessed that EVERY "rich" family member / friend get RETURNS on their tax at the end of the year. So tell ME........... is this upfront? or After?

    Because after all that has been seen..... the rich with GOOD tax guys..... get a crap load of money BACK! And I include Union people too!

    I see it as the people that are not Union-wise or RICH-wise dont pay a damn thing for taxes. Ive SEEN it! I KNOW it!

    what the dems forget when they claim that the messiah is going to cut taxes on most of the taxpayers is that they ignore that most of the FIT is paid by 5-10% of the tax payers. A tax cut that ignores 70% of the income tax source is hardly a tax cut for most of the tax base

    So are you saying I should be patting rich people on the back even though under Bush they got a much better tax break?

    No, we're saying you shouldn't let yourself be distracted by the deliberately provocative use of absolute numbers when dealing with large figures.

    in raw numbers yes. but a percentage cut is a percentage cut for all. of course if i make 100,000 and you make 10,000, and both of us get a 5% tax rate cut (so 5,000 and 500 respectively) then my tax cut is 10x the size of yours, though both of our cuts were equal.

    what i find interesting is how they rate cuts to capitol gains rates as absolute cuts; which is a problematic metric to use.

    And here's average yearly tax bill, by bracket:

    Okay, so what are the gross earnings for the super rich and how does the effect of tax shelters, which are only available to them, have on their net earnings?
