    "The proposed tax increases that the White House and Congress are proposing will probably pass. According to the Washington, D.C.-based Tax Foundation, during 2006, roughly 43.4 million tax returns, representing 91 million individuals, had no federal tax liability. That's out of a total of 136 million federal tax returns. Adding to this figure are 15 million households and individuals who file no tax return at all. Roughly 121 million Americans -- or 41 percent of the U.S. population -- are completely outside the federal income tax system. These people represent a natural constituency for big-spending politicians. Since they have no federal income tax obligation, what do they care about higher taxes or tax cuts?"

    There's no link to any "tax foundation" there's a link to Walter Wiliams' OPINION.... and what he asserts the "tax foundation" (whoever the heck they are) says.

    his home page is interesting... all global warming denial and BS about "socialism".... and touting Milton Friedman's laissez fair economics (bogus even when Adam Smith advocated it).

    So how 'bout honesty about the source, eh?

    love the poll tax stuff... it definitely works to exclude African-Americans...or at least it used to.

    so figures....

    higher taxes could bring them in to the income tax system...so they do have something at stake...in addition to this all of these people are paying SS taxes and medicare taxes. Their SS tax surplus has been USED by these politicians to PAY for what those higher taxed wealthy federal income tax payers, should have paid for...so the wealthiest have stolen from the poorest.

    everyone has reason to watch who they vote for...and many, do not understand this importance of being an educated and informed citizen, no matter your class or net financial worth.

    Walter Williams OPINION is solid rock reliable... Aside from his Ph.D in economics... he is a man of impecable reason.

    It's worth noting that the above noted imbecile had only gone so far as to attack his name; and demonstrates her inability to address his argument, through her intentional avoidance of that argument.

    But hey... it does prove, in large measure, Williams' case... This idiot has no BUSINESS being allowed within 10 MILES of a voting booth.

    The way it was originally set up -at the federal level anyways- was that only landowners got to vote for federal office holders and the Senate was made up of appointees of the state legislatures.

    If you wanted a say in the political world, you had to have some -dare I say- "skin in the game".

    Since the overturning of that provision and the 17th Amendment, the federal gubmint has pretty much operated as tripartite mob rule.

    no...he's someone you agree with who's telling you what you want to hear.

    As opposed to the above-referenced proven nutbar who thinks anyone who disagrees with him isn't American?

    I would have been pleased to address the "tax foundaton" and it's purported 'study" if I knew what it was. But the post was misleading and didn't link to it.

    But I think I'll pass on your laissez faire capitalist BS. I don't care for Dickensian nightmares.

    You're a hoot and a hollar...insane...but a hoot and a hollar nonetheless. Perhaps Moscow would be a better place for you. The politburo never liked dissent either. Maybe you and Putin can resurrect the good ole USSR. dasvidanya, comrade.

    Interesting statistics...lets have a look

    The proposed tax increases that the White House and Congress are proposing will probably pass. According to the Washington, D.C.-based Tax Foundation, during 2006, roughly 43.4 million tax returns, representing 91 million individuals, had no federal tax liability.

    How does one have no federal tax liability? Does it mean that you are under the threshold for paying federal taxes? It can also mean that your deductions bring you below the federal threshold. Many wealthy people hide their money in investments that are tax free, or wrap them into a business expense and claim a business loss. These are included in your 43 million


    Adding to this figure are 15 million households and individuals who file no tax return at all. Roughly 121 million Americans -- or 41 percent of the U.S. population -- are completely outside the federal income tax system.

    121 million Americans? What deadbeats
    How many Americans are under the age of 21? 88 million Americans are under 21
