    You're right. People who don't pay taxes don't benefit directly from tax cuts.

    It was a tax rate cut, across the board.
    How can tax cuts help people who already don't pay federal taxes anyway?
    The EITC was expanded under Bush, so they definitely helped lower income people.

    Part of it is because GE has business ventures that don't operate in the U.S. another is that GE took advantage of the Green Energy business tax credits and yet another is that GE wrote off losses like every other business can do.

    You and others keep wanting me to buy into ...Oh piece of cake get rid of Social Security and Medicare and Medicaid no employers provide any pensions or healthcare so the pigs at the trough can pocket lots more...and its just going to be all PuuuuurFECT everyone will prosper...HORSE**** harry...sorry buddy Ive lived through too many of these same kind of scams
    Then why are low income people expected to pay into both Medicare and SS?

    That sounds pretty regressive to me, especially when there is no guarantee that they will live to see those benefits.

    Harry Guerrilla, you post the following qoute "I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    If someone is borne with a very small defect causing an arachnoid cyst then “discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end” still applies to that someone who through much effort in now almost able to live independently, with the assistance of more than $1000 per month retail in drugs. I agree with this Adam Shepard quote, but generally not you.

    Of course it's different but that doesn't mean one can't accomplish it.
    It's far easier to make excuses and never save a dime.
