    Doc, dimbulbs cannot relate to this. Its outside their ability to grasp. Its like an unexplainable mental block.

    CVX will scream and holler about the rich getting richer, even though HSTORY has shown the more they make the more taxes they will pay, IN ACTUAL DOLLARS. But if you increase the PERCENTAGE rate, and stifle their ABILITY to make money, which is the REAL agenda, ask CVX and R&J, it IS the plan. Then you will get less revenue. Leave people alone, get the flock off their backs, and they will make money, and pay more tax revenue EVEN IF ITS AT A LOWER RATE. Choke incentives to invest and hire, and the revenue tanks. DUH!
    Obama, Hillary, R&J, and CVX will tell you its FAIR! Well boys and girls, your idea of FAIR always seem to result in less. WHY? Who is it fair to? Those that REFUSE to work.


    Its not alot unlike a agent for a actor, or rock star.
    Lower percentage, but plenty of work and good income. Higher percentage, they fire your ass, no actors, no rock stars, no revenue.

    But the very very very worse incentive to pay more is the WASTE, and the FRAUD, and the FREE FOR ALL GIVING AWAY, of our hard earned tax dollars. It the irresponsible squandering, from goverment employees to the freeloaders that kill the incentive.

    Of course R&J and CVX are all for higher taxes. It means bigger pay check. Would I vote for a higher tax specially on the wealthy that I DO NOT WORK FOR!, so I can have an additional 10%? HELL YEAH!
    Or even if I have to pay an additional 25.00 a week more in taxes, thats fine. So long as the remaiming 140 million tax payers pay more so I can have an additional 100.00 a week on my check for a net gain of 75.00.

    Like I said, they shouldn't even be allowed to vote. They simply vote themselves MORE MONEY with every election.

    consider this commies. You don't get another dime in income until the revenue goes UP. When you figure out how to do that, then you can have more.
    No responsible thriving business on this earth pays its employees to do the shit results YOU produce and still give them higher wages. It would go broke. And yes, you have broken the United States of America. Congradulations, its the one job you did quite well.

    Hmm. Suggesting a 33% rate, which I assume is a total rate. I don't know how that translates to marginal rates or state and local taxes.
    Of course we've seen the clip of O and Hilary vowing to raise rates even more (collecting less) just because of fairness. Funny thing, Doc, "fairness" was not listed on that graph anywhere, just % and revenue.

    Ha, my FB friend said this exact thing. She is a civilian DOD employee, they are facing a 20% pay cut. She'd rather have a tax increase cuz she knows it wouldn't be 20%. Btw, my opinions are no longer welcome on her FB page.

    Ok then, what rate would you be willing to pay without allowing any deductions? Don't you think it should be across the board? Why should some pay more than others?

    The scale should shift down but it should still remain a graduated tax schedule. For me, 12-15 percent would be reasonable. My situation has become increasingly complicated the last few years and it was worked in my favor because if the preferential nature of the tax code.

    Why graduated? Why not a fair system where everyone pays the same? Isn't that what fair means? Everyone pays their fair share?

    I really doubt someone of your mentality could comprehend such a concept but the Lord's system is 10% and the Churches that actually practice the law of tithing are among the most financially stable organizations in the world - not religious organizations, but organizations in general.

    Here's the rub for you liberals . . .

    . . . everybody pays their tithe. No deductions or exemptions. The widow pays her mite (dime on her dollar) and the wealthy man pays his tenth as well and the Lord's kingdom is well financed for life. My Church always far exceeds the humanitarian aid provided by the Red Cross and has for decades but they aren't in it for the donations or press. Best of all, tithing is 100% voluntary. Those of us who are aware that everything we receive is a gift of the Lord and the health, skills, talents, etc. that we possess to earn our keep is also a blessing of the Lord so we gladly pay a meager 10% without hesitation. Best part is we can't keep up with the blessings that keep pouring in more income. Funny how the Lord works that way. Proven true for me for well over fifty years and counting.

    So I take it that using you marxist reasoning, that every purchase a person makes should include a tax return so the merchant can calculate the sales tax to charge him. If you have a graduated income tax, stand to marxist reasonling we should have a graduated sales tax as well.

    They have tried this before with "luxury taxe". But all that managed to do was kill the industries that manufatured and sold items that were under the luxury tax. You know, the companies that added to the GDP, employeed people, who paid taxes, bought goods for there own use, etc, that moved from productive tax paying jobs to the government assistance programs.Just another brainy marxist idea that was. Only makes sense to amp the idea up and charge wealthy people more for EVERYTHING they buy.

    Freek'n greedy ass morons.
    BTW, don't waste your time trying to deny its marxist origins. Its #2 on the Karl Marx's Cumminist manifesto list. We should be ashamed we even consider it, let alone implement it.

    Why can't you people stand and be PROUD, and PROCLAIM your communist beliefs. Why do you insist on denying it and hiding in the shadows. Scream it from the roof tops and be proud. Damn, at least the gays managed to man up and come out of the closets. I have much more respect for their convictions than cowardice pussy marxist commies. Splineless pukes.

    Because they are not, certainly not in terms of productivity and intelligence. Not that the two are synonymous.

    That is why I am not a fan of governments relying on sales tax. But to your demented and twisted point, people's buying habits sort of take care of that. One guy chooses a Ford Ranger and another an Aston Martin.

    Have you ever passed an American history class? Prior to income taxes being levied on the American taxpayer, all we had were consumption taxes (sales tax.) We were the richest nation on the planet, Our GDP eclipsed any other nation on earth, our middle class was far wealthier than any other nation's and government had not a dime in debt.

    I look at it this way, if everyone paid a Federal Income Tax maybe more citizens would be concerned how it was spent.

    "The nation had few taxes in its early history. From 1791 to 1802, the United States government was supported by internal taxes on distilled spirits, carriages, refined sugar, tobacco and snuff, property sold at auction, corporate bonds, and slaves. The high cost of the War of 1812 brought about the nation's first sales taxes on gold, silverware, jewelry, and watches. In 1817, however, Congress did away with all internal taxes, relying on tariffs on imported goods to provide sufficient funds for running the government.

    In 1862, in order to support the Civil War effort, Congress enacted the nation's first income tax law. It was a forerunner of our modern income tax in that it was based on the principles of graduated, or progressive, taxation and of withholding income at the source. During the Civil War, a person earning from $600 to $10,000 per year paid tax at the rate of 3%. Those with incomes of more than $10,000 paid taxes at a higher rate. Additional sales and excise taxes were added, and an “inheritance” tax also made its debut. In 1866, internal revenue collections reached their highest point in the nation's 90-year history—more than $310 million, an amount not reached again until 1911."


    Relying on tarrifs.... So much for all that free market stuff, HUH Doc.
