    PER the IRS.. those dastardly, evil "millionaires and billionaires" that filed taxes in 209
    SOI Tax Stats - Individual Statistical Tables by Size of Adjusted Gross Income
    NOW these are the facts if any of you want to take the time and do it your self!!!

    227,202 tax returns with incomes over $1 million.
    $486,776,993,000 was total taxable income from the above returns.
    $123,709,600,000 was the total taxes PAID on the above or 25.41% of the taxable income

    NOW if the tax rate was RAISED to 30% how much more taxable income would be added.
    $146,033,099,000 would be total taxes at 30%

    TOTAL GAIN from raising taxes to 30% -------- $22,323,499,000!

    SO let's go ahead tax these filthy evil "millionaires and billionaires" at 100%!
    We'll add : $363,067,395,000! YEA go get em!!!!

    Only problem is.. these 227,202 tax returns will just give up their citizenship eventually and as
    NY,CA, and other personal tax ,city tax, state taxes, are finding out .. these people MOVE!

    Anybody who believes that Obama is interested in paying down the debt should be wearing a kick me sign. What troubles me is that Romney/Ryan aren't especially interested either. However, I do know that they will be responsible with our money to create jobs/revenues and not engage in as much wasteful spending.

    it's hard to say which is the biggest lie of the 2012 campaign when practically every word coming out of Obama and Biden's mouth is a lie. Too many to choose from.
