    I guess it has been added into the bill, i think the NY Post article stated that. I dont remember 100% right now i'll re read it.

    If its just a proposition then it should be killed, IMO.


    Yeah Rangle is not the right guy to be pushing for this. People who want to make this law can find a better poster person to represent it.

    Tell Rangel to fuck off. The tax code is a Byzantine system. People are going to make mistakes.

    Do you like a simple flat tax? I am fond of the idea of everyone having to pay xx percentage on all their income over say 40,000/year or something. No exemptions, no writeoffs.....you pay xx% no ifs, ands, or buts.

    Once again, we have to demand that members of congress be subject to the same laws the rest of us are. That was the purpose of the citizen legislature.

    And once again, our loss of equality in this country goes directdly to the MSM, and their alignment and investment with a certain political party; because they believe that only certain targets will be damaged: hypocritical conservatives.

    Edit:
    We are in a position, or soon will be if things keep going as they are, to invoke that standard as long as WE keep the pressure up. Things are changing, one way or the other.
