Read in yesterday’s newspaper that taxes shrink for the ultra rich. And I quote, “The super-rich pay a lot less taxes than they did a couple of decades ago, and nearly half of U.S. households pay no income taxes at all.”
What in the hell is going on here?
Why aren’t people truly revolting? And I do not mean the lemmings that follow Beck or Limbaugh, those are Wal-mart trailer trash that follow whatever the O’Reillys of the media tell them to follow, guess it gives them a sense of belonging to a cause since they do not have a life.
The tea party (or the tea baggers as I like to call them) should be planning to run all these millionaires out of office instead of going after the people who are in office for the greater good, trying to give us a decent life and a chance to prosper.
Eric Shoenberg who teaches a business class at Columbia University made a little over $200,000 last year and paid $2000 in taxes. I made less than a quarter of that and had to scramble, donate, give away and scrounge for deductions and I still had to pay $1000 in taxes and that is with home ownership too. What the hell is wrong with this system?
Of course Beck, O’Reilly, and Blowhard are getting RICH all this time. Nothing wrong with that, but don’t do it on the back of the working man. They attack the system which is making them rich in the first place and then become hate mongers and hypocrites to boot.
Remember how Bimbaugh railed against homosexuals in the Army? Well he did not have any problem paying Elton John 3 million dollars to play at his wedding — that’s hypocrisy.
Of course Bimbaugh was not in the Army, he had deffered service, just like he railed at Clinton about. At least Clinton was a Rhodes scholar.
Bimbaugh also said he would move to Canada if Hillary got elected. I voted for her just because of that — would have liked to see his fat ass freezing up in Canada . Oh wait you cant go doctor shopping in Canada can you? But I digress…………………………….
Did you know that during the Eisenhower administration the top income tax rate was 92 percent?
92% 92% 92% That is ninety two percent !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Bottom line: everyone should pay their fair share of taxes, especially corporations.
