    Anti-Obama Flier Invoking Hurricane Sandy Reportedly Released By Americans For Tax Reform

    Problem, as we see here, there are people who actually believe these lies.

    Norquist has said that all the GObP needs is a dumb robot who can hold a pen and sign what they tell him to sign. There are some American voters who are helping them to get exactly that.

    Really shabby for this slime to use people's tragedy this way. They don't want to help the victims of disasters but they sure as hell don't mind politicizing it. Just like Mitt who went right on campaigning while pretending he wasn't campaigning.

    Huffo Puffo Fluffo

    When the lower incomes pay the same rate as the 'evil rich' on their higher dollars earned, or when suddenly ~47% of the population starts actually paying federal income tax, then you can fucking complain if the 'evil rich' get their tax rates cut to be below that of the lowest earners...

    Idiot

    Another wannabe ultra rich person. How many hundreds of millions are you short there Diamond?

    And Mitt wants to cut taxes by 20% across the board. How will that make the evil 47% then be obligated to pay more Federal Income tax?

    You know what DD. If Mittens tax rate paid (14.9%) is indicative of what all the ultra rich are paying, I think the poor and the rich are paying at about the same withholding rate.
    Thing is the poor get theirs back (what maybe 2 to 3 thousand dollars) and the ultra rich get to keep their tens of millions of dollars.

    I am sure that sounds about "right" to you.

    Think you could get any ultra rich to trade places with the poor person that is getting back their entire Federal Income tax withholding? You know, it is such a good deal for the poor,
    who wouldn't want to trade places.

    Mitt had capital gains... I pay 15% on my capital gains as well...

    There is NO CITIZEN that should be exempt from federal income tax... you want equality in outcome.. I want equality in treatment... I don't care if you make $10 or $10000000000

    Not raising taxes is not the same thing as a tax cut.

    Since the Republicans have been insisting on lowering taxes for years, aren't they the ones largely responsible for creating the 47%?
