Hey what im about to post is a response to a previous one and i am just asking for everyone, republican and democrat alike, to read this; simply because im seeing alot of misconceptions and opinions based on misconstrued data. Reply if youd like, i wont attack you, ive said my piece.
first of all it's well known by now that many of the super rich put their money in foreign bank accounts so they wont have to pay taxes at all, including your not so golden boy mr. romney. Second, you obviously arent very familiar with math or you arent aware that your candidates are twisting the numbers around to make them sound worse.. yes, you could say they pay 39% and it sounds like a big deal right? But in reality what they are taxed in comparision to what they make and their assets is INFINTESSIMALLY SMALL when contrasted with what the average american makes compared to what theyre taxed. Okay with that said im going to explain it with an example that probably wont be accurate, im just showing you a similar fictional statistics. now if there are 200 men in a room and they are being "taxed." 180 of them only make 40,000 dolars each so theyre asked to pay $5,000 or 8% of their income for a total of $900,000. the other 20 people make 20,000,000 or more a year (which is really lowballing it) each, and each of them is asked to pay $150,000 or 0.0075% of their annual income for a total of $3,000,000 which is more than three times what the other 180 men paid together but if you really look at it, to pay their fair share the group of 20 men would have to pay 8% or $2,500,000 each for a total of $50,000,000. Which, granted, is over 50x what the "common" people in this are paying (this is how the republicans spin it) but this is trully the only fair way in which everyone paid 8% of what they earned.
You talk about "fair share" because you only look at one side of the numbers. Politicians take advantage of that ignroance, and im not even here to fault you, everyone gets fooled at some point. i just want you to ask yourself, what is really the ideal fair situation.
Good for them. If you have the money, by all means splurge. I mean you worked hard for it, so play hard to. To those envy jealous persons with nothing good to say, if you don't have this you have NOONE to blame except YOURSELF. If you don't have money, it's your own fault. Quit looking up to us for a handout.
I personally could give a rats **** about this person(whoever he or she is) freaking waste of money.They should be ashamed of themselves flaunting what they have.The important thing the wealthy tend to forget about is the economy which is killing this once great country.The well-off people dont have a concience.They dont care about starving children in thier own country as long as they have all the luxuries .What the hell is wrong with you people ? It seems you just look through a big tube with nothing on each side of it and as long as that tube is all about YOU then things outside that tube are great also.You are VERY lucky that I dont have mmmmmmmmm certain powers lol.I would definetily reverse the role but only until you see your wrongs
How much hate can you people spew?
Promoting envy is a slimy form of low ball.
I have yet to fully understand just how low MSNBC is willing to go !
If your kids go to school, that's our tax money. I don't have kids. I could complain if I was an Ayn Rand fan like a current VP nominee because I don't have children. But, because we are a country built on care and concern for our fellow humans, I pay my taxes so your kids can go to school all day for free. These are federal tax dollars.
If, under the new medical laws, your child can remain on your medical insurance until he or she is 26, you are receiving benefits from the new Health Care changes. This is lifesaving for young adults diagnosed with horrible illnesses who used to be dropped off their parents' medical insurance unless they were rich enough (and well enough which was usually rare) to attend college. Now all kids can equally stay on their parental medical insurance until they secure that job at Wal-Mart for minimum wage.
If you, or anyone in your family goes, or have gone, to college using a PELL grant or federally subsidized loans, that is federal tax dollars you used.
If you or anyone in your family works for a federal, state, city or county entity, those are federal tax dollars. You are earning tax dollars while complaining about paying taxes. Your job is one that will be gone if the rich don't start paying their fair share.
If you have a relative who is on Social Security, you are being helped by federal taxes. If they did not have Social Security, you would have two choices: They could be homeless and hungry or they could live with you and you could feed them, house them and pay for all of their medical expenses.
If you get a day care rebate at the end of the year on your taxes, you are getting a federal tax benefit.
If your spouse dies, you and your children would get Social Security based upon their earnings (and it would not be much) to help you keep your home and feed and clothe your children.
If you are poor and pregnant and you go sign up for the free medical care and food for you and your baby until it is 5 years old, that is a federal benefit.
If you receive food stamps, unemployment, school lunches or breakfasts, your child goes to Head Start, you are getting federal tax dollars you and others have paid in.
Why would you rather someone have a mansion filled with baubles than have them pay their fair share of taxes to help people just like you who have lost a job, a sick child, have become old and retired?
Why would you believe a bunch of nonsense that you, too, could become a millionaire? This self made person is so very rare. 90% of these super rich people did nothing except inherit money or rip you off during a wide variety of scandals including the Savings & Loan bailout during the 80s, The 401-K ripoff of the 90s and continuing, stealing your homes with loopholes, and on and on. Why would a hard working person want these people to have homes full of junk rather than make sure children are cared for at school or grandpa is eating regularly?
