    this is more fun than anticipating the accident that has you crawling in traffic for two miles on the freeway with no exit available. This I gotta see!!!

    I wonder how Turtle got your private tax information?

    the facts are clear. other than the top few percent, every other group pays less of its share of the tax burden than its share of the income. Nothing can be more objective than noting that if a group makes 10% of the income it should pay 10% of the income tax if we have a tax based on income. If we have a tax based on use of government services than if a group makes up 2% of the population and it pays 10% of the taxes its most likely overtaxed. If a group makes up 50% of the population and pays 4% of the federal taxes than it is clearly well undertaxed based on use

    You whine about the rich which allows me to rationally conclude you aren't one of the top 1 or 2 or 3 percent tax payers. You constantly whine about the working class being underpaid

    what this means is either you are lying about your true motivations or you are a low bracket taxpayer or a non-tax payer.

    feel free to proffer some information but that you won't again leads to rational conclusions

    Re: What purpose did the tax cut for the wealthiest serve?

    Let me give you some advice counselor...some friendly advice, I know some extremely wealthy people that truly do pay millions per year in income taxs...and they never utter a single whimper. They dont tell me daily how rich they are. They dont try to demean the fact that I dont pay as much taxs as them because I dont have as much as them. They dont try to look down on me and they treat the guy trimming their shrubs like a gentleman...You need to learn some humility.
    You would be much more effective in making your case without any false claims, wild distortions or personal horn tooting, or attempting to denigrate others

    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    I have an objective basis for my claim

    if you are part of a group that pays less of the federal income tax burden than your share of the income I can honestly note you are paying less than your fair share

    Since you refuse to even state what you pay, and given your constant rants about the rich and your laughable lamentations about how bad "working people" have it its a fair assumption you are part of the group that pays less taxes than it objectively should

    so you believe one millionaire-now i am not talking like ted turner but someone who has a couple million in assets and is paying taxes on an income of 200-400K a year-that man is paying more income tax dollars in a year than tens of millions other americans.

    so using your confused logic, that millionaire is using more government assets than say 80 million who pay no income taxes?

    and using Ipast's class envy based nonsense-that millionaire is not paying enough but all those people who are paying nothing would be overtaxed if that had to pay say 100-1000 a year
