    I think there is a good chance keeping the taxes where they are may create jobs. Raising them will probably lose jobs.
    On the other hand extending the unemployment benefits will probably do more harm than good.

    If all are let to expire, those in the lowest bracket, now paying 10% will be paying 15%. That's a 50% increase for the poorest tax payers!
    Are the dems going to let that happen just to stick it to the wealthy and the job creaters?

    Oh well, tough tarts. If that's the cost of the rich paying their taxes then so be it.

    what caused you to have such hatred of the rich? the rich already pay far more taxes than any objective concept of "fair"

    again with the same old broken record... lets see which talking points you covered here just in that small quip

    The Turtle Dude standard message

    1- I am richer than you are
    2- this makes me better than you are
    3- I deserve to be rich
    4- you want my money
    5- you are suffering from money envy

    6- the poor don't pay taxes
    7 - the poor use up more services that they pay for
    8 - the democrats are trying to steal my money through buying the votes of the poor

    only two this time, you must try harder.

    Of course, if we include the post from barb that you quoted in your post we can also hit

    6- the poor don't pay taxes
    8 - the democrats are trying to steal my money through buying the votes of the poor


    Four now --- thats more like it.

    Not too shabby Turtle. You covered five in just a short post.

    Has it ever hit you that you are the only person here who sticks out their chest and tries to impress everyone in this blatant manner?

    Seems to me that if you are not paying federal income tax then you have no business suggesting that others should not get a tax cut or be opposed to it.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Yeah ? So what's an "objective concept of fair" in your book. in your SUBjective view ?
    How about John Howard, hedge fund manager - does nothing for society (like firefighters or coal miners). Only manipulates money and people to enrich himself, and rakes in $ 1.5 Billion/year.
    His taxes are less than the standard 35%. I'm not sure what they are exactly.

    Even if they were 35%, his income (for doing nothing, essentially) would be $ 525 Million. Fair ? I'd rather see the firefighter and the coal miner get more of that money than Johnny Moneybags.
    Or kids with birth defects. Or veterans returning from war missing arms and legs. Or putting people back to work fixing America's crumbling infrastructure. Or securing the Mexican border. Or fighting home-grown terrorism. That's my subjective concept of fair.
