    Why oh why weren't the Bush cuts allowed to expire?

    BTW check out "excised taxes". They've risen the most over the years.

    Ask those 1% to live in the rest of our shoes for one year. They'd fold after the 1st month. Pansies they are all.

    That's federal income tax, Shitstain. The poor still pay payroll tax, property tax (if they own any), sales tax and so on. If they don't pay income tax it's because their income is so tiny, it's just cruel to take even that. Republicans don't get it.

    Did that really have to be explained?

    Plus, things have gotten much worse for the poor and middle class since 2004. Much worse.

    It's all smoke and mirrors spin so the poor little bastards can further shirk responsibility. Talk about entitlement mentality. Oh my God.

    Social Security is the great leveler, its the Government transfer payments received by the top 20%. Obama and the Democrats would that all of us lived on our 'allotment' while they and their friends laughed all the way to the bank.
    Why would somebody then do as I did during most of my life, work a forty hour a week job, work a part time twelve hour a week job on top of that, and then build houses in the interrim. Never quibbled about the taxes, paid what was due and am now faced with a group of miscreants that want me to hand it over to them simply because they exist.
