I really don't understand WHY anyone especially the Dems/Obama supporters don't just go to the IRS (LIKE I HAVE!!!) and see how much more money would be paid by taxpayers earning over $200,000 and do as I did, see 3,895,526 tax returns in 2009 reported a gross income of over $1,724,161,875,000. Now it is so simple to multiple that $1.7 trillion by Bush's cuts from 39.6% to 35% or 4.6%! So children.. what is the answer?? $1,724,161,875,000 X 4.6% = $79,311,446,000... Yes that's IT! For $80 billion more collected by the IRS from those 3,895,526 taxpayers it will last 11 days! You don't believe me do as I did download this file from this web site: SOI Tax Stats - Individual Statistical Tables by Size of Adjusted Gross Income It's the 2009 Tax Return analysis provided DIRECTLY from the IRS! "Table 1.1 Selected Income and Tax Items, by Size and Accumulated Size of Adjusted Gross Income, Tax Year 2009" BUT there is more!!! The economic multiplier states for every $1 million spent is multiplied by 1.18 or the economy grows with that $80 billion to $94.4 billion. Taxes, payroll taxes, new employees $1.188 million in total economic activity takes place for every $1 million spent.. Each $1 million spent provides $205,829 in labor incomes Each $1 million represents 7.7 workers and assuming 35% (payroll taxes, FICA, FUTA, Medicare, SS) ($80 billion equals 726,880 jobs! www2.econ.iastate.edu/research/webpapers/paper_13143.pdf But what do the FACTS have to do with Obama/Democrats??? They just make up numbers like "50 million uninsured"!!!
