    To think people will work hard, so others can benefit isn't the stimulus that is likely to work:

    Well I have been preaching Obama's ignorant evil crap for 4 years now...

    Of course the die hard partisan libs will continually love him no matter what he does..

    We are talking about a man who actually expects to spend 3 trillion dollars on social programs...

    I dont think anyone could actually spend 3 trillion on social programs, you could gold plate the projects and still not spend all of that money.

    If I were in the position of these people, I'd do the same thing. Obama doesn't have a clue how to run anything. Shouldn't it be a requirement to run for President that you have to have governed a state first? Or perhaps run a successful business? Something that gives you experience in the field of running things? Something that gives you experience of having a clue? The more I see of this guy and the more he pushes his fucking agenda the clearer his 'Chicago liberal socialist punkass self' becomes. How anyone voted for him is beyond me.

    Obama got elected by Bush's mistakes, no doubt, and by 'American Idol' popularity pushed by the MSM and by spewing horseshit that ignorant people lapped up. Stupidly and blindly, they thought it was 'change' flavored koolaid.

    Why stop there, neo-cons?

    Why not make nothing whatever, and test your precious theories about what a happy skate being on welfare is?

    Go ahead...make my day.

    of course she is.... the wack jobs always lie.

    And these idiots, who demand "proof" of Obama's place of birth, (no matter what the supreme court says) believe some unnamed person ....

    see how they feel about unnamed sources when it means they have to believe the current administration.

    I wouldn't believe these loonies if their tongues were notarized.

    And our friend, Annie, is going to LOVE the stimulus bill when it means she has a job next term.

    I'm with Ravi. I bet she's lying. We know that cons (cough, cough Joe not the Plumber) wil lie about their personal circumstances to parrot a rightwing talking point to media.

    Please explain why the economy boomed when clinton raised the top marginal tax rate on the rich in 1993. thanks.

    there would be no benefit to pair their business down....the op is utterly ridiculous and i have to wonder if these people mouthing this crap even do their own taxes or understand how the tax structures works?

    Sounds to me like they are cluless, absolutely clueless...

    let's say your taxable income is $280k instead of the 249.9k, the only extra taxes they would pay in income taxes is the difference between 35% in taxes and 28% in taxes ON THE 30K over the 250k only.

    so in this case, for making $30,000 MORE, they will have to pay about $2100 more in taxes than they did under their previous tax structure.

    So, for $30k more in taxable income they will pay $10,500 in taxes verses $8400 that they would be paying if the tax break of their bracket did not expire in 2011.

    Bringing home almost $20k out of that $30k with the new tax structure....

    are you saying that this woman in the article would really keep her own income down to avoid paying a 7% increase on her taxable income over and above the $250k....and she would turn down the $20k extra she could add NET to her yearly earnings?

    Bulloneyyyyyyyyyyyyyy.

    Care

    dayum, check out the brain on care!


    this lady is lying. She's pulling a joe the plumber....making up an invented story so she can parrot something she heard on the limbaugh show.

    either she doesn't understand taxes, or she's flat out lying about owning a business and how much income she makes......much like joe not the plumber did when he got in front of the camera for the first time.

    Either that Care, or she is an extremely stupid lawyer. If she was my lawyer I'd fire her...not just for being stupid, but also for being lazy. Imagine if you had her represent you for a case that needed a little extra effort, lol, she'd not be bothered with it and you'd be up a creek.
