    Curious--why do you claim to be a moderate and have a socialist avatar?
    Because I AM a moderate, a Moderate Socialist.

    and I don't recall paying Payroll taxes-the employer does. If your contract says you make 90K a year what is taken from you in payroll taxes
    Dude, I don't know how you get paid, but on my pay stub there's a box for payroll taxes (FICA, SS, Medicare/aid, etc). It's usually larger than my income tax withholding.

    It is an income tax. It is based on income, but with an upper limit. It goes into the general fund.

    The way I, and most people, get paid, it comes out of my check; the employer doesn't pay it.

    LOL that is like saying one is a benign strain of pancreatic cancer

    socialism is a disease that is ruining america. We need to stamp it out in order to make America great again. socialism is an opiate of the masses the ultra-rich use to whittle down the amount of competition.

    I was going by what the employer pays

    the second definition from WIKI

    Payroll tax generally refers to two different kinds of similar taxes. The first kind is a tax that employers are required to withhold from employees' pay, also known as withholding, pay-as-you-earn (PAYE), or pay-as-you-go (PAYG) tax. The second kind is a tax that is paid from the employer's own funds and that is directly related to employing a worker, which can consist of a fixed charge or be proportionally linked to an employee's pay.

    but SS is not supposed to be a tax according to our dem friends who started that scam-its forced savings. But you are right about that stuff.

    most of that is not designed to fund general government operations.

    I was a national class table tennis player-probably a good idea on your part. Why keep losing. And socialism is a disease, and yes, we need to get rid of it

    I have no duty to fund your existence and your life is not a valid claim on others' wealth

    BTW claiming you are a centrist is dishonest. a moderate "socialist" is still way left in the USA

    really? we had a pretty good militar before we started having a confiscatory income tax rate. and arming ourselves is actually something the constitution actually authorizes.

    I wonder how much taxes the federal government would "need" if the same federal government was restricted to actually obeying the tenth amendment.?
