    Actually TD, I have explained this before, having safety nets for the poor would work if they weren't set up to encourage staying in the system. Please see my previous post in this link: http://www.debatepolitics.com/polls/...post1059654691

    All of Turtle's points have been rebutted to death over and over and over again in thread after thread after thread no matter what the actual subject of that thread is.
    No one has ever rebutted that. You spend most of your time whining how welfare socialism and progressive taxes are patriotic and all american in an effort to camouflage the fact that it helps your masters win elections

    any cite for that stupidity

    corporations are legal persons

    even if a corporation pays no taxes domestically in terms of profit taxes it still pays all sorts of other taxes. Your lib friends claim that the poor pay plenty of taxes even if they are freeloaders when it comes to income taxes.

    dividends of course aren't taxes-people pay taxes on dividends. you misread (as usual) what I said

    I've only noticed one poster using the 47% figure. I have noted that most of the Fortune 500 corps pay no income taxes at all.

    That is why we need to tax the rich. They're lazy and grown accustomed to sucking on the public teat. We have to stop subsidizing their sloth

    Yeah, did you read it? What do you think of that? Wouldn't getting rid of safety net cut-offs and progressively weening, eliminate the current trap welfare system?

    you are lying again-they pay lots of taxes. they pay payroll taxes. they pay taxes on profits earned in other tax jurisdictions. They pay property taxes. and who cares. the people whom own them pay taxes on the income they derive from owning the corporation

    you aren't subsidizing them-we subsidize you. Your posting frequency here suggests you don't have a job given how much time you spend here during normal working hours.
