    I figured as much

    the founders didn't believe in non-land owners voting. I don't believe in people who pay no income taxes having a say in how those taxes are raised or collected

    The founders worried about that sort of thing

    so tell me again, what is your training in constitutional scholarship? DO you hold a law degree or do you just pretend to know what the constitution says.

    You also fail to understand that I can be opposed to some rulings or amendments and still support the constitution

    I get the fact that you are envious of those who make more than you do.

    I do not know if you have a problem with reading comprehension, statistics or both; you stated that many of those in the $50k range pay zero federal income tax. Your article states something different, pertaining to median household incomes equal to or under $50k with two children under 17 can pay zero income tax.

    The family was entitled to a standard deduction of $11,400 and four personal exemptions of $3,650 apiece, leaving a taxable income of $24,000. The federal income tax on $24,000 is $2,769.

    With two children younger than 17, the family qualified for two $1,000 child tax credits. Its Making Work Pay credit was $800 because the parents were married filing jointly.

    The $2,800 in credits exceeds the $2,769 in taxes, so the family makes a $31 profit from the federal income tax. That ought to take the sting out of April 15
    Of course, you will never admit your spin nor lack of clarity. Yet what do i expect from someone who champions "supply side economics" has only a primitive understanding of it.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    do you know at what level of income someone actually starts paying more in federal taxes than they get in federal benefits? while people well below that level are still paying federal income taxes, one doesn't become a net tax payer until they pay more than they receive

    any guesses what that number is?

    And of course you will never admit that people making 50,000 don't pay any income taxes regardless of the number. The fact is you seem more worried about what the rich pay instead of the fact that some who could afford to pay something in income taxes actually pay nothing. The fact is this is all about class warfare and diversion from the failures of liberalism and the big govt. that you appear to support.

    Exactly as i expected, both a reading comprehension problem and inability to understand statistics. I do admit that a family of 4 who's household income does not exceed $50k make a $31 profit from the IRS. You on the other hand made a lame attempt to spin it into a scenario where anyone making under $50k pays zero income tax.

    The fact is you seem more worried about what the rich pay instead of the fact that some who could afford to pay something in income taxes actually pay nothing.
    Please identify the post in which i am "worried about what the rich pay". If you cannot do this, then apologize for making **** up.

    And there it is.... You are not arguing my statements, only how you perceive me to be from a personal standpoint. Now that's what i call class (pun intended)

    That isn't what I said as desperation sets in with another liberal.

    Is your ego so fragile that you have to demand an apology? do you or do you not support letting the Bush tax cuts expire for the so called rich? If not then I apologize, if you do then my statement stands.




    And there it is.... You are not arguing my statements, only how you perceive me to be from a personal standpoint. Now that's what i call class (pun intended)

    I am entitled to my opinion and what I see is someone who advertises themselves as a Libertarian acting and arguing like a liberal. The Thread topic is GOP plan to extend tax cuts for the rich adds 36 billion to the deficits. Is that what you believe?

    Noticed that you ran from the request for you to explain why you continue to support this Administration who hasn't made an accurate economic prediction in over 2 years and now claims that extending the tax cuts to the rich will add 36 billion to the deficits? You don't seem to be bothers by supporting an ideology that destroys your credibility and makes you look foolish. Wonder why?

    cute but stupid and evasive

    based on your lack of a rational response I will presume you have no training in constitutional law and will treat you as such

    envy is all you have
