Why have any money at all in private hands? Why not just tax people 100% of their money 100% of the time? (Trying to think like a Hitlery Klintoon.)

Naw, she doesn't buy silverware, She steals it from the taxpayers. She got enough out of the white house to last her a lifetime.

I thought NY was a net payer of taxes meaning that the amount the individuals pay far exceeds the amount they "get back". That means that Hillary is responible for moving NY cash out of NY and into the Federal gov't yet claims crdit for doing the opposite. Are NY liberals really that dumb ?

I went to the NTU site and found only outdated press releases and ratings. Can anyone provide a link to the ratings cited in the article? I'd like to check how my free-spending local Congressman did (Maurice Hinchey-NY 26th).

The real question should be, "Are liberals really that dumb?"

The available evidence currently points to YES!, according to statements of Rep. Frost(D-Texas) and other House Democratic Caucus members such as Gephardt,

refer: DATE CERTAIN TAX CODE REPLACEMENT ACT, House Congressional Record April 13, 2000 pages H2259-H2282; speaking of a memo regarding the Joint Tax Committee's assessment of the total Federal tax rate as a percentage of family consumption expenditures based on Clinton administration expectations for government growth in program funding)

Apparently the House Democratic Caucus hopes to be able raise total federal taxes across 10 years to 59.5% of family consumption expenditures. That indicates a whopping 37.3% of gross family income, more than 1.5 times the effective total federal tax rate born by the nation's familys in 1999 as estimated by CBO.

Thanx.

 

March 28, 2002 -- WASHINGTON - Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton scored an "F" in her first year in Congress by voting for more new government spending than any of her 99 colleagues, an anti-tax group reports.

Clinton set a record, getting a 3 percent rating for her 2001 voting record, the lowest score ever for a freshman and lower than any other senator, according to the National Taxpayers Union.

Sen. Charles Schumer scored 9 percent, according to the group, which reviewed 194 Senate votes cast last year for their relative impact on taxpayers.

Clinton dismissed the ranking: "Getting a high score from this group would mean cutting billions of dollars in aid for New York," she said through a spokesman.

Among New York House members, the lowest score went to Rep. Charles Rangel (D-Manhattan), with 6 percent, while Rep. Vito Fossella (R-S.I.) claimed the highest score, 68 percent.

TAX FOES GIVE HILL WORST RATING EVER

New York Post

 

Look, if the Dem leadership and Gore had called for Clinton to resign after he admitted that he lied to the grand jury, the incumbent president Gore would have been elected easily in 2000...no bones about it....and then, where the hell would the country be today? Scary thought.....ken5050

Hillary is such a retard. She campaigned on getting more of New York's tax dollars back to New York. Now she votes for every spending/tax increase that comes along. She is either too stupid to realise that those two things don't jive, or she is so power hungry that she believes that New York's money must flow through her regardless of its final destination.

And the Bush administration is exceeding even that with new programs, new bureacracies, increasing foreign aide and deficit spending....so what's your point?

Mr. FROST. Mr. Speaker, I yield myself 30 seconds.

Mr. Speaker, the previous speaker was asking about simplicity and how do we understand all of this. Let me read a memo from the Joint Committee on Taxation . This ought to be simple enough for the gentleman to understand.

The memorandum is in response to their request for an estimate of the budget neutral tax rate for H.R. 2525. That is the bill of the gentleman from Georgia (Mr. LINDER), a bill to replace the current U.S. corporate and individual income, estate and gift and Federal income contributions act, payroll taxes, with a flat tax on retail sales of all goods and services.

Then on the second page it has a little chart here, neutral over 5 years, 59.5 percent. That is what they want to do, neutral over 5 years, national sales tax 59.5 percent. I believe the American people can understand that.

Hillary is doing this for the "chil'run" and VOTES that's all it is about that and "your money doesn't belong to you"...it belongs to big government and more social engineering and of course, for herself.

Mr. FROST. Mr. Speaker, I yield myself 30 seconds.

Glad to see you are still supporting the liberal and Mr. Frost(D-Texas), Chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, in there quest to keep th income/payroll tax system lewislynn.

And the Bush administration is exceeding even that with new programs, new bureacracies, increasing foreign aide and deficit spending....so what's your point?

And even using their demogoguery.

You might note the current(2001) total federal tax rate is 23.6% of gross family income according the Tax Foundation website.

Not the level of burden you imply. But then I'm not a particular fan of Republicans or Dems. I prefer that everyone know what they are really paying in taxes and everyone be hit with the same rate of 23% of their spending instead of 23.6% of their gross income, with a large fraction of the tax burden hidden, which you seem to be in favor of.

Looks like you are in good company however as 70% of the voting public still clamors for more from government looking for the top 40% of taxpayers to foot the bill.

And neither I, Alan Keyes nor Walter Williams see much change in that until the shell game ends.

Walter Williams, World Net Daily, 10-25-2000

According to the most recent U.S. Treasury Department figures, in 1997 the top 1 percent of income-earners (those with income of $250,000 and higher) paid 33 percent of all federal income taxes. The top 5 percent of income-earners ($108,000 and over) paid 52 percent, and the top 50 percent ($36,000 and over) paid 96 percent of income taxes. Guess what the bottom 50 percent of income earners paid?

If you're among those who pay little or no federal income taxes, what do you care about tax cuts? Moreover, if you think tax cuts pose a threat to government handout programs, you might be openly hostile and support Al Gore's silly "risky scheme" talk. So many Americans paying little or no federal taxes makes for a natural spending constituency. It's like me in the restaurant: What do I care about extravagance if you're footing the bill?

Keyes on Taxes & Government Spending:

Alan Keyes Interview with Des Moines Register:

The intent of the structure of the individual income tax is for political and social control not revenue collection. The Individual Income tax is maintained to establish and hold every person in the country perpetual legal jeopardy.

Why not just tax people 100% of their money 100% of the time?

Well here's a better idea. Why not just have the government issue a check to each person for $100,000 every week? There will be no more poor people! We'll all be millionaires!

Y2000 New York received 86 cents for every dollar sent to the federal government.

It think most LA Casino's pay out more than 86 cents for every dollar.

And come time for her to run for re-election, it'll be completely illegal for the National Taxpayers Union to publicize this information...

GOOD JOB, GEORGE!
