@middlewaytao: Net? Not net? There is no difference.
If the top 1% paying ANY tax makes them 'monorns', then by golly, LOTS OF RICH FOLKS ARE MORONS! Because the top 1% PAYS 30%! Not "theoretically" but IN FACT.

PAYS!
Not 'might pay'
Not 'could pay'
IN FACT PAYS!

Try to keep up sonny-boy, you're laggin behind...

@5cats Once again No, I specifically said net. If you are in the top 1% and paying income tax you are a moron.

The lower classes surely pay more percentage wise of total income than the upper classes.

BING! BING! BING!
You are absolutely correct @jarjarburns! And who, anywhere, is addressing this problem?
The LEFT wants to increase:
gasoline taxes
electricity taxes
sales taxes
food prices
And WHO does this harm the most? The poorest amoung us!
So: the left wishes to harm the poorest amoung us. Period.

This completely ignore all the income that goes out for all the other taxes. The lower classes surely pay more percentage wise of total income than the upper classes.

@jt: none of what you said amounts to a hill of beans. I'd strike them down one by one but it always takes longer to show WHY something is false than to repeat a 'Democrat talking point' eh?

@middlewaytao: You didn't say it? But left it out there for all to infer...

@OutWest: True, flat taxes might be more fair, but the poor'd need to pay 30% just like the rich folks! Or else the left will squeal "ooo! ooo! The rich got tax-cuts! wee wee wee!"

Good point @Gerry1, we don't have a 'capitalist' system in North America any longer.

Capitalism worked pretty well.
We should go back to doing that.

top 1% = 30% of net taxes - 43% of net wealth

@middlewaytao: "Income" and "Wealth" are two ENTIRELY different subjects. Unless you like the idea of Governmant confiscation of private property? Your name, it seems... unfitting.

Yah, that's why I didn't say income taxes....

5cats:"EVERYTHING BAD you say about the Republicans, Obama has ALREADY DONE!"

Really? Republicans wanted to let the auto industry fail. Obama gave them a loan and saved at least a million jobs. (think of all the other satellite industries that benefit)
Republicans wanted to keep gays out of the military. So did Oba...oh..wait..never mind. He repealed DADT.
He expanded the SCHIP program. That helped alot of kids. Like millions.
Republicans loved how Bush didn't wan't casualities in the wars to be reprted on. You might remeber he ordered a blackout on coverage of caskets coming home? So did Oba...wait...Obama lifted that ban. sorry.
Republicans were trying to save public sector jobs and....wait...no...they want to shyte-can the. Obama took steps to protect them. Republicans said something about "not being worried about Bin Laden" (because Saddam was actually the one who was harboring Al-Queda and had the WMD's)!!??!! Well, und

One person's fair is another person's unfair.

Why not a flat percentage for each of us, regardless?

@jt: I say, I say that was a joke there son! (Foghorn Leghorn voice)
I meant it as a funny, sorry it ruffled your feathers.

He'll close those corporate loopholes!!!!!

Just like Obama! HE promised to close corporate loopholes too! And had majorites in both houses... so tell me again why ANYONE is 'worse' than Obama?
EVERYTHING BAD you say about the Republicans, Obama has ALREADY DONE! Or not done as the case may be.
Name one thing! Go on! It's either fiction or Obama has done it.
iirc @jt: YOU blamed Repubs for keeping Guantanimo Bay open...

middlewaytao: "Or we could just treat every working person as a corporate charter, only pay 15% on what you have left over after all living expenses, home improvements, etc. are paid"

Now THAT'S an idea I could get behind! Hell, if I work it right, after living expenses, home improvements, and investments (offshore, of course) I could sucessfully end up with paying almost nothing!

Maybe you should come down here to the deep south to hear what a REAL conservative sounds like. As I said...it wasn't trolling. It wasn't satire. It was an impression. I'll take you to some bars were that talk will get you a free beer. Hell, I'll take you up to Sanford where there's a bar not even ten minutes drive from where Trayvon Martin was killed that if I called Obama the "N" word, we'd probably drink for free.
I know you're not a racist, nor do you approve of it, but after seeing some of the posts on this site on other threads, why get all hot and bothered at me? Bark up the other tree, man.

"Here's a thought: Since corporations have lobbied to have 'person' status, let's just wipe out ALL of their corporate tax breaks and tax them as 'people'."

Or we could just treat every working person as a corporate charter, only pay 15% on what you have left over after all living expenses, home improvements, etc. are paid

"You remember when Obama called Bush "unpatriotic" for spending so much? I DO!"


Do you remember fiscal "conservatives howling about Reagan borrowing from Social Security to pay for his budgets? I DON'T!
Please....both sides suck.

@jt: Stop trolling @logandaninja, plz!

Carter: let inflation and intrest rates skyrocket.
Canada: inflation and intrest skyrockets.
Reagan: imposes anti-inflation measures, gets the economy rolling.
Canada: imposes anti-inflation measures (stupid ones that didn't work) economy rolls anyhow because the USA is rolling.
Bush I: Invades Iraq.
Canada: We do too.
Clinton: cuts welfare, seriously reduces the deficit
Canada: cuts medical spending, slightly reduces the deficit.
Bush: invades Afghanistan
Canada: We do too.

Want more? I got TONS!

And yes @jt: thanks to our 'socialism'; we used to carry a heavy debt-load per capita.
Thanks to Obam, the USA has WAY MORE debt per capita now! In only 3 year's he's out-spent Bush's 8 years!
You remember when Obama called Bush "unpatriotic" for spending so much? I DO!
