Ask how Chris Dodd suddenly became the president of the Motion Picture Association. Or why I won't watch the Oscars. Again. Hollywood hypocrites.

Taxes are only for the masses. Hollywood needs all the tax breaks they can get.

My advice? Quit going to the movies. If a film is good, it’ll ALWAYS be good no matter when you see it. I borrow DVDs from my library; my confiscated TAX DOLLARS are paying for it, anyway!

Yep. I’m still a part of the problem, but to a lesser extent. :)

I am sure that the Hollywood lefties use every tax dodge they can to avoid paying those high taxes and I am betting that many will claim one of their second homes in low tax states as a primary residence as California ratchets up their tax rates.

a flat percentage, above a defined poverty line, is the same for everyone. no favoritism.

define the poverty line at $20k. you make $50k, you have to pay 20% on the $30k... or $6000.

make $500k ... you owe 20% of $480k ... or $96k

doing the math for the country:

individual income per capita: $41,560
estimated US population: 310m
US total income: $12.883 trillion
number of workers: 140m
poverty allowance: $20k
total poverty allowance: $2.8 trillion
taxable income: $10.083 trillion
at 20%, total tax revenue: $2.016 trillion

this is almost exactly the amount brought in now... but removes the class warfare possibility. this is what ‘fair’ actually looks like.

The House Republicans should attach an amendment to *every single* bill voted upon providing for a line to be placed on all Federal tax forms...1040,1040EZ,etc....giving taxpayers the option of donating a sum of money to the US Treasury *over and above* what they're required by law to pay.Massachusetts has had such a line on its tax forms for years and I read a few years ago that something like 200 returns (in a state of 6 million people) check the box in a typical year.
