so are you really in that top one percent....or are just some wannabe that sees the need to protect all that wealth if you ever achieve it??
I'm not even in the mean, I am lower than that. I pay taxes on every cent I make, not even bush's tax cuts cut any of my tax obligations, just
delayed them. that one percent gets most of their income from investments. what were those tax cuts mostly centered on? capital gains tax,
investment taxes I do believe???
why do big business like carnival cruise pay less in taxes than I do?
and, well....then my question is....
why is part of my taxes probably going to keeps a portion of carnival cruise's employees and their families sheltered, fed, healthy, and basically
bill gates and his buddies can make all the money they want really. but I think that it's really disgusting that employed people, working 40 or more
hours a week, are having to accept funds that are taking from their neighbor's paychecks...who are just scrapping by themselves....in order to keep
their families in the game!!!
carnival cruise and other big companies can't give all their employees a livable wages...
they aren't taxed at the same rate as me either, and don't want to be....
we, the common taxpayer ends up footing the bill to keep their employees alive...
and the bills gates' of the world get to reap the big profits of the companies' "best year ever" record profits!!!
that is what has to change!!!
