Absolutely stunning isn't it.
Attn: Matty - why don't you cough up a couple of mil and send it to your messiah - the more you send the less I'll have taken out of my paycheck. These people are idiots, do they even listen to themselves?
They might propose something like that. Then one comment from 0, Reid, Chris Matthews, John Stewart, Polosi, etc and we’d have the Boehners, McConnells, and Sarah’s Boy (McCains) scrambling for a microphone. “The extremist Tea Party Christian Fundamentalists....”
at least that is what the IRS says, so why don't you pay more on you own???
cause you are a cheap-ass hypocrite, that's why...
Donating to a charity is not going to do a damn thing about the national debt unless the “charity” in question is the US government. You don’t get tax deductions for donating money to the US government. That would defeat the purpose of the donation.
The real scam in America is about special classes of income. It shouldn’t be about wealth and it shouldn’t be about income. Every American from a retiree to a GI to a hedge fund manager to an investor, should pay the same tax rate. If we did it would lower tax rates for most.
How did we establish that a GI putting his life at risk should pay a higher rate than a billionaire NYC hedge fund manager because of his special class of income? Income is income.
I don’t understand why a retiree withdrawing from his IRA pays a much higher tax rate than a hedge fund manager or a investor with capital gains.
If you make money you should pay the same tax rate as do others. There should not be special tax rates for some and not for others.
There should not be a tax free muni bond for the same reason. These municipal authorities are issuing tax free bonds to help their cronies. Income is income whether it be on a W2, 1099, capital gains or anything else. There shouldn’t be special rates for some and higher rates for average Joes.
You first Matt.
I won’t be going to see anymore Matt Damon movies. Ever. Tired of feeding the beast.
Wait, that's confusing... What is being shipped to North Korea, his assets or his ass? I would prefer we keep his assets here and ship his ass to the NORKS. Is that what you meant?
All of the above my FRiend, all of the above...
We keep them here
Nothing at all has or will prevent from idiots like Damon from paying 90% in taxes - Hollywierd needs to pick up the tab along with Gates and Buffett and the other two-faced multi-millionaires who hide zillions in their foundations yet demand working stiffs cough up $$$$$ to pay for slobs who refuse to work or liberal interest groups from fleecing the only sector of America that works and produces anything!
R E A L L Y
didn’t get it.
Shut-up, Matt! I don’t see you whipping out your checkbook to pay more taxes, you jerk!
Matt Damon condemns the kulaks.
This from a guy who makes his living by pretending to know how things work.
You don’t A D D much to the D I S C U S S I O N with hyperbole and all caps.
