the law just passed was the Tax relief Extension until 2012...
these are not new tax cuts - Except for the temporary reduction of Social Security payroll
that has a 2% temporary reduction = which translates into a $900 annual windfall for those
making $45,000.oo yr.
What will everyone do with that extra (but temporary) $25-$75. every paycheck ? decide
to buy a $45k Chevy Volt ??
yes the aggregate ammount of reduced [Size=3]SS[/Size] tax will be massive
(30 million X $25. wk x 50 wks= $375 billion year Stimulus)

Well, since I give $5 per day in tobacco tax, that covers me for everything else.
Odd, I spend $10 (total cost) per carton for smokes. I just think that someone is being foolish with their money.
Why whine and bitch and moan about progressives tax rates? Isn't that unfair, so you want conservatives to pay less tax, but you want liberals to pay more tax? A tax hike for people based solely on political leanings?

Would really love to keep turning you into a "logical pretzel" all night, but I have to get up for work in a few short hours.
Ah, see that one I understood. "Logic pretzel" is neocon speak for "Oh, crap, he makes more sense than me, better pull a Bush and drop the "Mission Accomplished" banner, but QUICK.

Why don't you give back your tax breaks and put your money where your mouth is instead of passing the buck and pointing the finger?
This is an utterly empty, opinionated, and rhetorically irrelevant op. The tax CUTS for the wealthy got passed, so why try to poke a stick in the eye of the less fortunate?
Wow, do you always sit down to pee or did you do so specifically after wailing your gibberish on this post?
If you would be so kind as to provide a link to your evidence, that would be appreciated. If you prefer to piss and moan, that will be understood as well.

Hey, hey, hey!
I just wanna know...
Is our children being educated?
Personally, I want everyone treated equally as far as the law is concerned. Progressive taxation is NOT fair as it penalizes people in different ways and, in my opinion, violates the equal protection clause of the Constitution.
I'd like to see a flat tax to keep government going, and a massive reduction in all government spending including military. I would like to stop paying to stick our noses in other people's sand.
Now, if you are a terrorist supporting country, and if you orchestrate an attack against the US, or if you attack the US militarily, we will use our smaller budget to turn your country into glass.
My foreign policy:
Trade with all, ally with none, no political or economic entanglement, mess with us and we'll erase your whole civilization from the face of the Earth.
Sound fair? Hell the way things are going countries to could wars with us to reap the benefits of our foreign aid. I think foreign aid needs to end. No more aid through tax dollars. Taxes are for US, not the rest of the world. The rest of the world can rely on the good hearts of the American people, as they often do.edit on 30-12-2010 by projectvxn because: (no reason given)
