They need to know there is a means tested program - the earned income tax credit - that will offer relief for the payroll taxes they pay.

    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%
    Yes, I understand that but those that claim the poor pay taxes too don't understand that.

    Why do you care how rich someone gets? How are people getting rich affecting you and your family? So let me see if I have this right, you make a 100000 and 20% in taxes=20,000 in taxes then because of incentive you grow that income to 200000 and your tax rates are 15% so you pay 30000 in taxes, because the tax rate drops from 20-15 that is a bad thing? that is liberal logic, not the fact that the govt. got 10000 more in taxes.

    You really need to think a little more and feel a little less.

    No response again to content, how typical. Why are liberals so concerned about what someone else makes and then they ignore actual dollars paid worrying more about percentages?

    Wow, what an excellent point. Shall I say it is hardley surprising you want to lower your own taxes?

    Yep, see, even a Conservative has free speech opportunities. Only a liberal seems to be worried about someone else pays in taxes so why shouldn't I express how I feel about paying taxes especially since Congress wastes so much money.

    I have no problem with somebody getting rich, in fact I applaud it, more power to them. They can get "filthy rich" for all I care. I completely understand your example, however in my opinion the very rich can pay the higher taxes that existed before the the Bush tax breaks were implemented. You don't agree. Tough.

    Can't wait for you to explain how higher taxes are going to get 16 million unemployed people back to work? You don't really seem to understand how our economy works and I would love to hear your qualifications as an expert on job creation and the role of our govt?
