    I think the only rate that matters is the effective tax rate. Can't imagine how any other descriptor can accurately depict what one pays in taxes.

    Example: Let's say one party wants to raise the top tax rate to 98%. Sounds confiscatory!!! But wait!! They also allow a 100% deduction for all earned income. The effective tax rate on a CEO who earns $1.2 million on his W-2 (and has no other income) would be exactly zero.

    I can't even find a definition for "nominal tax rate." There are lots of ways to describe tax rates. I don't think "nominal" is one of them.

    Ah, yes, Here we agree. (I love common ground.) In the matter we're discussing, elected representatives made a decision not to support PP. If my elected representatives make a decision to cut the military budget...or increase the military budget...then that's the way it is. This was done by a vote of Congress. Not Maggie sittin' around grumping about how my tax dollars are spent.

    A leap of almost unprecedented wrongful thinking.

    1. What % of PP's budget was represented by that defunding?
    2. What happened as a result of that defunding?


    Until you can answer those questions for us, you're on a witch hunt.

    Here. I'll answer #2: The private sector stepped up and more than made up for that defunding. Poor PP -- they're better off than they were before.

    Ah. So you would posit that the sesquipedalian nature inherent in Redress' malignment of her opposition is indicative of a superior argument, rather than a merely more pretentious advancement of the same, snotty fallacy?

    How intriguing.

    You get it. According to Redress rules, you are now allowed to stay in the thread.

    She, sadly, must leave .

    Re: Are all black men brainwashed?

    I keep asking for a black Democrat to tell me why he or she is Democrat and why most black voters vote Dem and still no response. I know of a couple of black conservatives in here and surly there is black liberals too. If there isn't I think this forum is basically a white racist haven and in the spirit of affirmative action and diversity and equal rights I demand that this forum be shut down!
