The wealthy pay 30%
Now I do not have to pay 35%
Now I can afford to better educate my son and buy more groceries.
The wealthy entitlements have not created jobs. It's been proven non effective. No more debate is even necessary.
um.... top tax braket right now is 35%
if your middle class your tax braket is at 25% or 28% depending on your income. they already pay more then you.
Using your logic, lower the riches tax braket and they too can now buy more groceries and goods..or are they too rich and it doesnt work that way?
edit on 15-11-2012 by camaro68ss because: (no reason given)
Most top 5% hire good lawyers and accounts and get their liability reduced down to around 15-18%

Because I'd love to see your source for that insane claim.
As for the 9 years, that's a TOTAL cost, of the tax cuts, to date, You can easily see what it is per year, and I gave you the projected savings over the next decade if the top 5% lost their tax cuts. If you forgot, it's 4x+ the current national deficit.
And to all the ideologues who go around adding stars to nonsensical erroneous posts, because someone is disagreeing with me, you remind me of one of your fellow Republican, David Frum, who said the GOP isn't a party of leaders, but followers.... no kidding. Starring an incorrect post makes your side look extremely shallow, stupid and petty.
"It may not be accurate, but I like the fact he's attacking that there liberal"...
It's gonna be a long, cold winter for the right in America.
