    Holy mother of god what a stupid thing for him to say. Not to mention it's not even true. Well... Not really... Follow me on this conservatives because most liberals won't agree...

    Any tax on a company is essentially a tax not on the company, but on whoever buys the goods right? I mean a company wants to make a certain percentage return on profit, and if it doesn't get it there isn't any point in actually giving the good or service.

    Well... There is a corporate tax.

    Taxable Income ($) Tax Rate[22]
    0 to 50,000------------------------15%
    50,000 to 75,000-----------------$7,500 + 25% Of the amount over 50,000
    75,000 to 100,000----------------$13,750 + 34% Of the amount over 75,000
    100,000 to 335,000--------------- $22,250 + 39% Of the amount over 100,000
    335,000 to 10,000,000------------$113,900 + 34% Of the amount over 335,000
    10,000,000 to 15,000,000---------$3,400,000 + 35% Of the amount over 10,000,000
    15,000,000 to 18,333,333----------$5,150,000 + 38% Of the amount over 15,000,000
    18,333,333 and up 35%

    Hey... Sure... That 47% may not pay income tax... But they sure as hell buy food, clothing, shelter, and anything and everything from Walmart. Oh they pay taxes, it's just hidden in corporate tax.


    That's how I see it... Feel free to punch any hole in that you can... I'm listening.

    I happen to agree with you, everyone pays taxes in some form. However I don't really think it was stupid of Romney to say, I think there is a general anger from the right that many people don't pay income taxes. So really he's channeling his base.

    You are failing, Libtards.

    But please do bring the loser entitlement mentality of the typical gubmint dependent Obama voter to the public discourse.

    The media sure as hell won't do it.

    LOL

    Then you're saying that Obama wants to raise taxes on the poor when he calls for higher corporate taxes?
    And you should remember that the other 53% of the country pays those same taxes and more.

    I think it was ridiculously stupid for him to say this. He has to get more than his base to win. And implying that 47% of the people pay no taxes is nonsense. This guy is an ass.

    Oh... I don't mind that he's channeling his base... I do mind that I think it's flat out wrong to say they don't pay any taxes.

    Myself I just assume that there was no corporate tax. Sales tax... Sure. That's not hidden at all, everybody understands that.

    Obama has your vote. You are a 47%er.

    The other 53% of voters agree with Romney.

    Most thinking people are well aware that he was speaking of federal income taxes.

    Yes... that is exactly what I'm saying. Kind of... It raises taxes on everybody... Not just the "rich"

    Oh yes.. I agree. Corporate taxes are bullshit.
