    Re: GOP plan to extend tax cuts for rich adds $36 billion

    Hypocrite, your name is John Boehner aka as the tan man.Here the hypocrite is on ABC's "Good Morning America" , Wednesday saying "We can't deal with the deficit until we're willing to get our arms around spending and have a strong economy,".


    On meet the press he was dodging and ducking with the following exchange with the host, DAVID GREGORY. The subject was the bush tax-cuts.

    GREGORY: Leader Boehner, he puts it right to you.


    BOEHNER: The only way we're going to get our economy going again and solve our budget problems is to get the economy moving, get more people back to work where they can care for their own families and begin to expand the tax rolls to bring more revenue to the federal government. And what we have to do is we have to get our arms around the spending spree that's going on in Washington, D.C.

    GREGORY: But Leader Boehner ...


    BOEHNER: That's the only way we solve the budget problems.


    GREGORY: ... I'm sorry, you're—that—you're not, you're not being responsive to a specific point, which is how can you be for cutting the deficit and also cutting taxes, as well, when they're not paid for?


    BOEHNER: Listen, you can't raise taxes in the middle of a weak economy without risking the double dip in this recession. President Obama's favorite Republican economist, Mark Zandi, came out several weeks ago and made it clear that raising taxes at this point in, in the economy is a very bad idea.


    GREGORY: But do you agree that tax cuts cannot be paid for ...


    BOEHNER: You cannot balance the budget without a ...


    GREGORY: But tax cuts are not paid for, is that correct?


    BOEHNER: I am not for raising taxes on the American people in a soft economy.


    GREGORY: That's not the question, Leader Boehner. The question ...


    BOEHNER: And the people that the president wants to tax ...


    GREGORY: ... is, are tax cuts paid for or not?


    Are the Bush Tax Cuts Paid For? - Newsweek
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    if the top 2% of tax payers weren't paying so much of the taxes they would not get such a big tax cut

    Perhaps you can help me with something. I keep hearing this 2% of taxpayers would be effected. As only 53% of the population pay any Federal taxes that would mean an income of $250K for a family would be in the top 1% of earners. I had thought that 250K would get you into about the top 5%?

    Do you know what this statistic is or where it can be found.

    Thanks

    I heard that it was around 350K that was top 1%

    haven't looked in a while but the obama target of 200K is below the top 1%

    In 1962 the rich paid 91 percent tax. Now they're only paying 35 percent. That's a tax cut for the rich of 56 percent. All because they bribed congress and are still doing it today.

    Don't cry for the idle rich who now have money to burn... Cry for the millions who work hard, get no breaks, and barely eke out a living.

    so what-

    tell me Rick what did the rich pay in income taxes for the first 120 years of this nations existence

    tell me Rick what good will come by telling most of the population that they don't have to pay any more taxes despite the deficit-only the top 2% will have to pay for an irresponsible government

    tell me Rick what good will come from making the rich pay more

    a) more jobs for those out of work?

    b) less government irresponsibility

    c) less class warfare

    no Rick, the only good that comes is that dems can tell their minions that the evil rich will get stuck

    right now the top 1% pay 40% of the income tax and make slightly less than 23% of the income. THe average tax rate on them is several percentage points higher than the next few percent

    the bottom 50% pay an average tax rate of 3% which is 8 times lower than the top 1%

    why don't people who want the rich to pay more stop pretending its good for the country (I have yet to see anything other than tax cuts won't help-we don't see tax hikes will help) and stop saying its fair because no one can claim that with a straight face

    why don't you all just be honest and admit that you like income redistribution and the power dems get by pandering to class warfare

    Right on! They bribe them. They get trade agreements that take jobs out of the US. Many of them profit from wars and the suffering and loss of American soldiers and families. They hide their money so they don't have to pay taxes.

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

    This chart nonsense is misleading because it does not take into consideration a number of factors that go along with keeping the tax rate low on those who create the jobs and start the businesses and spend the most in retail purchases that do have the dreaded trickle down effect.

    The top few percent of money earners pay the vast majority of the taxes and those at the bottom pay little or nothing. Even the psychological effects on investors are effected by the prospect that taxes are not going up, it means there can be more and or fresh money available to be invested creating an atmosphere conducive to growth, and new jobs and that translates to high revenues coming into the treasury.

    The one thing the Left never gets is the more you take away the less there is to use in a recovery and the whole dumb ass notion that you can spend you way out o debt with money you don't have for projects that don't work is crazy on it's face.
