there is nothing more dishonest than those posters who claim the top 1-2% don't pay their fair share unless they mean (and they do not) that the top 1-2% pay far more than their "fair share"
Then the is the statement that the 47% do pay payroll taxes. Wonder if any Obama supporter actually knows what payroll taxes are? What payroll taxes would an Obama supporter propose cutting?Obama's handlers understand what people want to hear and Obama is able to express that with a straight face. People WANT to believe and he gives them their wants in words. They are incapable of distinguishing the difference between what he says he will do and what his entire history tells them exactly what he will do.
I oppose an progressive income tax but could live with a flat tax even though the high payers stll pay far more than they use
if a group makes 10% of the income they should pay ten percent of the income tax
since the top 1% make 22% of the income their share of the federal income tax burden should be 22%
of course, true fairness is paying for what you use and in that case the rich would pay far less because most of the government spending that can be actually traced, is not used by the rich
BBL-off to a sporting event
I will also point out again that the 400 richest American's tax payers have gotten richer under Bush and their effective tax rate has plummeted to 16-17%
in 2000, the british pound = around 1.6x usd
in 2008, the british pound = peaked at 2.0x usd
so while their accumulation of us capitol went up, the crashing economy took the shine off of any gains to the tune of 20%.. "cutting from the bottom of the sheet.." to coin a phrase..

I will buy into the unions having too much power and demanding rediculous wages, but congress stood by and let those jobs go. If we don't have workers, we don't have consumers, which leads to less workers, less consuming. The GOP was part of that fiasco.
