That’s exactly what I was thinking; only applies if your playing along.
If the GOP ever wants to win another election they need to start running adds NOW!! outlining all this crap. They need to be getting their message out 24/7/365. Not just during an election year.
A question for the tax knowledgeable:
We often hear how US individual taxes are lower than European taxes. Are these apples to apples comparisons? Does Europe have separate provincial, Social Security, unemployment fund income taxes? And does it have additional local taxes?
I realize that there are some other factors—US corporations are heavily taxes; capital gains are more heavily taxes; on the other hand, the European VAT tax probably outweighs our state sales taxes (which is why it’s been floated as a possibility for us).
This is what half of Americans voted for. It is what they want. They have the government they elected.
This only applies to the 50% that are paying taxes.
The other 50% think your a greedy bastard for wanting to keep your own money.
Take a look at your tax bill this year (2012). You may be subject to the AMT, and you won’t find out until you file. If you use a tax preparer, call him, now.
Easy solution = no paycheck!
And, don’t forget...
The self-employed pay the FULL 13.3% (15.3%) payroll tax rather than splitting it with an employer. (At least the second half can be taken as a business expense deduction.)
day late and a dollar short..
i have been paying over half of my earnings to the government for over 10 years now....
feds, state, local, sales, property, gas, license plates, communications, and so on and so on..
add it up sometime...
Three years ago... Add state and local sales taxes (9% here) to what you purchase with what's left after income taxes.
Why only half? Why not send very penny to the govt, all savings, everything and have them redistribute so everyone can live the same...?
Wait, that means JayZ and Beyonce have to send little Blue Bell to a govt school, can’t use their private plane....Obozo and Mooch can’t live in HI....
Given how many Republicans change their tunes once they are elected, and rampant vote fraud, it also sort of touches on that feeling of “taxation without representation.”
I've been wanting them to come up with such a tax ~ applies just to Democrats, and Republicans skate free. We all hoppy!
Guess this is as close as it's going to get but New York deserves it ~ blasted by a superstorm, billions in damage, and now their boy raises taxes to the roof!
