I can see based on your other posts that you like to do nothing MORE than to troll! Your views seem like those of the Tea Party...I do not know why "Tea Partyers THINK they are Republicans Lol Just so you know I am a registered Republican :) A moderate more specifically...I just have the common sense to vote for the RIGHT person who cares about the American people and not about their overseas accounts headed by blind trustees. Just so you know MOST rep. DO NOT like Mitt Romney BUT they rather the country go even more down the shitter just to "de-throne" Obama. It really is sad and quite pathetic but w/e.
So before you start "spouting off" I hope you take a GOOD HARD look at that money being taken out of your paycheck and remember how people like Romney doesn't pay one dime out of theirs! But thanks to people like you, his friends can sit on NICE hefty Billions, No I mean trillions NOT creating jobs like he says they do. Where are the jobs? Hello don't see ANY!
Poking holes in your claims would LITERALLY TAKE ME HOURS! I'm not even kidding! I will never understand why people like you support the blood sucking vamps of our nation like the Legislative branch AND the IRS! Keep in mind that these "people" that you seem to be in love with DO NOT CONTRIBUTE to the IRS piggy bank. So IF we "taxpayers" have to contribute to this pot of luck then I think we should have a say in how OUR money is being spent!
IDK like paying for SS, Medicare, stuff like that us "younger" people will POSSIBLY NOT have when WE NEED IT! I'm not sure If I know anybody who wants to pay for something that is not benefiting them. But I am sure that you'd make the same argument about Obamacare, not benefiting us well neither is the IRS!
The IRS is a scam! I will NEVER support the IRS, not now and not ever! Just because you do not like the IRS does not mean you are against the government. Maybe you should research the IRS and their 'scadals'>>>>>Douglas H. Shulman is the current Commissioner of Internal Revenue. google more about him :)
Its funny how the GOP only support the government when they NEED them....just lovely. Mitt Romney says "Oh the "government didn't help me build my business!" The lets take back OUR taxpaying dollars that built the infrastructure that YOUR companies rely on!
"Yes, the poor economy has led to reduced revenue and a large deficit but the the U.S. was running budget deficits to the tune of several hundred billion dollars a year even before the recession hit, which was a direct result of the two Bush tax cuts and two unfunded wars which have cost several trillion dollars. Why would we cut infrastructure, education, Social Security, and Medicare/Medicaid when those programs have had absolutely nothing to do with America's fiscal problems?"
Thank you! Someone with a brain and common sense! :)
"Hence, in comparison to cost of living, individual income tax isn't that big of a deal. What does upset me, in relation to my work with VITA, is the waste of our tax dollars on benefits and entitlements that encourage a growing segment of society to stay put as an underclass. This flows back to my family as substandard public education, crime, gang culture, blight and a nearly 3rd world atmosphere. My point being that we pay Tokyo prices for Mexico City standard of living.
It's not just that our standard of living is sinking, it's the policies that have allowed the lower standards to engulf the middle class lifestyle we used to expect out of our achievements."
EXACTLY! and these standards have been depleting WAYY before Obama.
Here some extra insight:
".and low tax revenue isn't because of low rates ... It's because people are unemployed/underemployed and are not making money like they used to ... and Breaking News ... The economy is terrible and there is no end in sight."
"underemployed" Some companies grant it really have no choice to remain underemployed but then you have the greedy bastards that do it well just for greed. Thanks Wall Street! Big4, Wells, JP, BAC etc they are ALL guilty of the mean green bug.
And high tax rates has no adverse effects like some claim as well. Just look back during the Clinton Legacy! :) Higher tax rates, lower deficits and MORE JOBS! Please someone denounce this if this is not true.
I don't care about the claims Romney makes BUT he STILL CANNOT and WILL NOT IN DETAIL explain his economic plans to lower the deficits. And for pete's sake, stop saying we CANNOT tax the job creators dude!They are not creating anything! Hece, why the employees that are currently working are being victimized by big corporations who continue to make biliions while us "middle class workers" income CONTINUES to drop. Do they care? NO! So why are some of you [Mr .Mini]*cough cough* act like they do?
"At least Democrats talk somewhat about encouraging government investment in technology, etc. Republicans seem more fixated on cuts, preserving entitlements, and touting American exceptionalism, even in the face of evidence that we are anything but exceptional anymore."
Thank you for saying this! My exact point! :) Totally in agreement
Its one thing to say they are not doing anything but GOP refuses to do ANYTHING! But they will take off [like,Boehner, Cantor, Rush,sorry had to toss him in there lol] to go play golf and sip margaritas while people are losing homes, becoming homeless because their unemployment is running out and those companies that SWEAR they create jobs are doing ANYTHING they can to take advantage of the bad economy.
Why pay [lets say]an Accountant 60k[even if it is deserved] when some out of college student is desperate for a job and willing to work for LESS [even if they deserve the 60k salary too]? Do you think greedy corps. have not thought about this? Greedy people will do ANYTHING for greed, even if it means bringing a country to its knees.
Keep in mind what happened to the Macedonian Empire after 600 years of reign or heck the Roman empire, I can go on. But they all crumbled from the same problem we are facing.
So legislators need to tighten up.
Alright, that's enough for today! Anymore, and I would have to write a book! Lol Heck, got the time since jobs are few and far between, why not?
