    Since we are currently running deficits, we should take all of it, correct?

    Explain how a poor person who receives a tax refund that is greater than the tax he owed is paying income taxes, if you can. If you can't, please regurgitate a nonsense, meaningless question.

    When Pres Trump announced the 600 positions in the White House over which the Chief Executive has full discretion would not be filled, the lefties had a melt down.
    Which I thought was quite amusing.

    Here's the lefty pat response. "Well, they had taxes deducted from their paycheck. So they had to live without that money until they received their "return".....I HATE that misuse of terms. When the government mails a check. it is NOT a "return"...it is a REFUND.....
    In any event, liberals view payroll deductions as "having paid taxes".....In the short term, that is true. However, when the net is considered AFTER the IRS issues a refund, and that refund exceeds the amount paid over the course of the year, the net revenue to the government from that individual is a minus. This means that person paid no taxes.

    I've always said that the fastest way to tax reform is:

    1. Hold elections the day after taxes are due.
    2. Eliminate payroll tax withholding.

    "Should The Rich Be Required To Pay Higher Taxes In the US?"

    Only Rich LIBERALS.

    If they have enough money to organize 'Hate' Marches...if they have enough money to fund organizations that send thugs to opposition rallies to intimidate, beat and bloody their supporters...if they have enough money to pay people to fire-bomb GOP HQs...then they obviously have more money than they responsibly know what to do with.

    :p

    Excuse me? The wealthy "impoverished people"? And now you're going to substantiate your assertion in detail, right?

    We could end our income tax by ending our wars on crime, drugs, poverty, and terror.
