The problem, as has been shown time and time again, is that these folks can pile on deduction after deduction and reduce their tax liability.

Things most Americans cannot do. So, since the money has to come from somewhere, the folks without all those deductions get shafted and pay more.

The people in our government are nothing but a bunch of selfish morons, republican and democrat, alike.

This corrupt f*&$ knows damn well that anyone grossing $250k one either coast is not “wealthy” much less “millionaires & billionaires”.

He's putting small business owners squarely in the crosshairs.

It’s going to interesting to see where he is going to get all these taxes when the rich start renouncing their citizenship and take off to Europe and all he’s left with are 100 million unemployed. Well 100 million is a little ridiculous, after all we are talking about Obama here....and all he’s left with are 200 million unemployed.

It really is gonna happen. Job losses will be horrific w/ 0bamacare plus small bus taxes. It’s going to get even worse - a lot worse - than it has been for the last four years.

Get out if you can.

Europe's looking dicey. France--with Hollande? Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece about to implode. Switzerland probably won't have the average well-off person. Heck, rich Chinese are moving their funds here and to Canada (look at Vancouver real estate.)

Greedy, class warfare consumed and debt-ridden governments are on the rise, and you can't keep it under a mattress.

O is striking at a time when good options are limited.

Apparently this is what the majority wants. That is what they voted for.

I have never been anywhere the 1%, have had a negative net worth almost all of my adult life, and I still vote against this wealth redistribution. Not enough do, though, so, there it is. We get what we ask for. Sadly the majority wants theft.

Well, ofcourse they don't realize they ARE the wealthy. They also don't realize life can change and though you can once be poor, you can also become wealthy. Also, they don't realize that voting for this crap negates my second point.

The Arrogant One thinks the vote gave him a mandate to do just what he wants.

The media will do everything to dupe the lumpen masses into thinking that it was indeed a mandate.....never mind the count.

The lumpen masses will accept it as gospel....and fault the GOP for not "reaching across the aisle".

Thus endeth today's reading of the gospel according to St. Barack.

Five wolves to four lambs - we won, you lost, the majority favor lamb for dinner.

a complete perversion of the constitution. Along with all the other discarded clauses, guess the equal protection one doesn’t apply to many of us.

This has been the demoCrap’s strategy ever since that slob ted kennedy passed the crimigrant bill, viz. flood America with 3rd world mongrels, give the ghetto and entitlement crowd endless freebies, then give them all the vote. Career dim politicians are whores who will sell their children for a dollar.

What small business owners ought to say to the Won: “Read my lips, mr. socialist pigsh_t, I will lay off the rest of my employees and shut it all down. You got over $100K (whatever the number is) this year. You will be lucky to get 10K (whatever the number is) next year.”

Asia, Russia, and S. America are growing by leaps and bounds.

America and Europe are intentionally being slowed while that happens.

The anti-colonialist-in-chief is doing just what he was brought up to do.

Substantive portions from Dinesh DeSouza’s `2016, purple rhetoric, mine:
Let me be clear, the father who abandoned junior, who had several wives and children and was a professional student with radical politics, also an abusive husband and father and mean drunk, eventually died in a car accident while driving drunk. Little Barry got to see him once, as a boy.
Make no mistake about it, with dripping pathos suitable for an article in a psychiatric journal or Lifetime movie, little Barack channels his father (”Dreams *From* My Father”) lionized to him by his spurned mother all of little Barry’s life.
Dad did manage to write a scholarly article in which he claimed it was “theoretically possible to tax people 100%”. The government (those who know) would decide how much of your money you were allowed to keep, to use for your own needs. Keep in mind, you didn’t really earn it or build that business or whatever, especially if you were a white devil victimizing people of color all your life.
You know what? Some people have greater abilities to produce money while others have real needs, so some are going to have to give up more of their pie so others can have more.
Yeah, Barack Sr. was a Marxist, Mommy was a commie and Barry Soetero/Obama is both of them incarnate.

Revoking Bruce Springsteen's fake farmer tax filing status ought to be good for a few hundred k more per year, at least for New Jersey.

250$ is a a very tidy sum ... in most places.

On the the two coasts where the average home runs easily in the 500,00, it is two full time working parents... Yet these fools voted " The One" by overwhelming majorities(New York, Calofornia)

Go figure!!

They love Socialism so much, they embraced Obama and kissed his ass, let their taxes skyrocket. I wont shed a tear for them

I can’t agree with the notion of “mongrels,” they are just people; that has racial overtones.

What IS different is that many, most(?) have less appreciation and history for the Judeo-Christian values and ethics that our nation was founded upon. It is cultural, not racial. And it has been eroded. I don’t know if we can recover.

It is certainly my opinion that those who desire to immigrate legally, take citizenship classes, and wait and sacrifice to get here would tend to be far better Americans than those who don’t.

Why doesn’t he address the problem by making his entitlement class pay more?
Perhaps if he focused (again, like a laser), he could re create a America where everyone was at work again and the entitled could have trades, careers, jobs and a expectation of a greater future instead of being trapped on the welfare farm ....

Dear obama, nobama... what a POS!

Schedule C section 179 deduction will be reduced from $139,000 to $25,000 in 2013. That’s what Boehner is talking about.
For many in the top 2%, paying taxes is ‘voluntary’ as in they can decide whether or not to take profits now or in the future. Four years flew by, and if one can, they can maintain a ‘slow roll’ mode until the storm passes.

It's not racial. There are a lot of whites in that category, are there not? If you've ever been to Mexico and Central America, you see a lot of natives of obvious European descent.
