    More drivel for the dupes to kiss up to. Remember, eat the oats that pass through the horse. That's all you need.

    That dentist eager to slash her income from $320,000 to $250,000 would avoid the pain of paying an extra $2,100 in federal taxes. But she'd also deprive herself of an additional $70,000 in income!




    what matters is she deprives the thieves of 2,100 dollars. suck it up already.

    Ol BO will find the rich are far more clever then he thinks, every penny he takes they will force a person of lesser means to cough up.

    Watch and see.

    BTW, this DOESN'T work, FDR was a disaster.

    I don’t know if it’s OK but -

    1 - The poor don’t have anything to take
    2 - The middle class just gets by.
    3 - The rich have extra.

    Because it’s the Government taking.

    Who say's the rich have extra?? Did anyone care to ask them if they have extra?? Do they have a choice in this..?? Sounds like gang-rape to me. Hey maybe we could all get the rich people to buy us cars....hell yeah!!

    Seeing as the government "is" the people....is it ok for people to take from others?? Is it constitutional to take from others what is theirs?? When does this bullshit end??

    Why cant I or anyone else determine on their own who and when they give money??

    Subject: How the U.S. Tax System Works

    Bar Stool Economics

    Suppose that every day, ten men go out for beer and the bill for all ten
    comes to $100. If they paid their bill the way we pay our taxes, it would go
    something like this:

    The first four men (the poorest) would pay nothing.
    The fifth would pay $1.
    The sixth would pay $3.
    The seventh would pay $7.
    The eighth would pay $12.
    The ninth would pay $18.
    The tenth man (the richest) would pay $59.

    So, that's w hat they decided to do. The ten men drank in the bar every day
    and seemed quite happy with the arrangement, until one day, the owner threw
    them a curve. He said, "Since you are all such good customers, I'm going to
    reduce the cost of your daily beer by $20. Drinks for the ten now cost just
    $80."

    The group still wanted to pay their bill the way we pay our taxes, so the
    first four men were unaffected. They would still drink for free. But what
    about the other six men -- the paying customers?
    How could they divide the $20 windfall so that everyone would get his "fair
    share"? They realized that $20 divided by six is $3.33.
    But if they subtracted that from everybody's share, then the fifth man and
    the sixth man would each end up being paid to drink his beer. So the bar
    owner suggested that it would be fair to reduce each man's bill by roughly
    the same amount, and he proceeded to work out the amounts each should pay!

    And so:

    The fifth man, like the first four, now paid nothing (100% savings).
    The sixth now paid $2 instead of $3 (33%savings).
    The seventh now pay $5 instead of $7 (28%savings).
    The eighth now paid $9 instead of $12 (25% savings).
    The ninth now paid $14 instead of $18 (22% savings).
    The tenth now paid $49 instead of $59 (16% savings).

    Each of the six was better off than before. And the first four continued to
    drink for free. But once outside the restaurant, the men began to compare
    their savings.

    "I only got a dollar out of the $20," declared the sixth man. He pointed to
    the tenth man, "but he got $10!"
    "Yeah, that's right,' exclaimed the fifth man. "I only saved a dollar, too.
    It's unfair that he got ten times more than I!"

    "That's true!!"shouted the seventh man. "Why should he get $10 back when I
    got only $2 ? The wealthy get all the breaks!"

    "Wait a minute," yelled the first four men in unison. "We didn't get
    anything at all. The system exploits the poor!"

    The nine men surrounded the tenth and beat him up.

    The next night the tenth man didn't show up for drinks, so the nine sat down
    and had beers without him. But when it came time to pay the bill, they
    discovered something important. They didn't have enough money between all of
    them for even half of the bill!
    And that, boys and girls, journalists and college professors, is how our tax
    system works. The people who pay the highest taxes get the most benefit from
    a tax reduction. Tax them too much, attack them for being wealthy, and they
    just may not show up any more. In fact, they might start drinking overseas
    where the atmosphere is somewhat friendlier.
