    Only in this day and age are people keeping more of their own property considered a "government handout".

    While it's fun to make fun of idiots that don't realize they are copying a trend that was started by prison bitches, it's far more fun to make fun of retarded hypocritical feminists.

    Deductions for dependent children of course don't matter because the same deduction is available whether you are single or married.

    The above was previously asked and you never did provide any examples.

    So let's have some specifics. What are these differences in tax treatment that are more than those reflecting that a married couple is two people and not one?


    Annual deduction $6,300 single, $12,600 for married. Two people one deduction each.

    Home Sale exemption $250,000 single, $500,000 for married. Two people getting $250,000 is $500,000. The same rate.

    Estate taxes. The single person is dead. For a married couple the spouse gets to keep joint property. Ohhhh the horror of a family keeping it's own property. However once the spouse dies the estate is then subject to the same tax law so really it's just a deferral.




    So come on, where are all these government taxes that a single person is hit with that a married person isn't that you keep complaining about. You know the ones directly related to being married and not contingent on (a) raising a child or (b) owning a home since you know the deductions are the same whether you are single or married.

    This is just political posturing, but those hyper partisan nut jobs that make meme's will be feeding from this for years.
