    Of course government services should be free! Why has someone thought of that before?

    Corporations like GE should get tax dollars back.
    I guess the lady would prefer that her taxes be raised.

    Uh … corporations like (and including) GE are getting government subsidies. Why on earth should they be getting tax rebates?

    When it comes to pollsters working for socialists, the first panel is very accurate. The second panel never happens because the pollsters would never ask that question. And if they did, they would discard any answers which go against the socialist agenda.

    The socialists have a spending problem, not a taxing problem. Drunken sailors are better at controlling themselves.

    $9 trillion missing from the Feral Reserve Bank in off-balance sheet transactions … Sequestration blamed for locking school field trips out of White House tours while the President hosts lavish star-studded parties in the West Wing. The issue is waste in government and cutting out of control government spending that is pushing us dangerously close to rivaling the financial catastrophe that is the European Union. Still, the left insists that spending must increase, in spite of waste, fraud and fiscal idiocy and that we should just “buck up” and give till it hurts. Well it hurts and we are tired of giving. That is the issue, that is the point and that is what needs to be addressed.

    My state doesn’t have sales tax. Every time I travel to states that do, it’s apparent, and highly variable, just how punishing sales tax (read “fair tax” to some) the sales tax is to low to middle class folks who have to make every day purchases. UP to 17% tax is indeed pretty punishing.


    It has to do with some having state + county+ CITY sales taxes, all adding up! (BTW, though folks complain about our state income tax rates, they’re lower than income tax in some of those same high sales tax states. )

    Sales taxes pay for roads, schools and a lot of local infrastructure. I’m not a big fan of sales taxes because they are incredibly regressive, but I doubt Republicans would swap sales taxes for more progressive taxes at any level of government.

    Online retailers account for nearly 10% of all sales. They drive local stores that create jobs, (low paying jobs, but jobs nonetheless), out of business. Tax online sales & we can lower the overall sales tax.

    Conservatives have become so blind it’s unbelievable!

    The Socialists are coming! The Socialist are coming! You guys are intellectual children. You know Capitalism only works until the Capitalists run out of other peoples money. (You like how I turned that around! ;-) ) You DB’s still do not get it that Capitalists, the GOP and Fox Spews don’t give a damn about you, you are just their useful fools.

    Obviously you have never been to Europe. And their financial woes are mainly from listening to the same people that you do.

    The truth is America didn’t have a debt problem until they elected Ronny and bought the free lunch lie of growth and prosperity through low taxes and deregulation. And here we are. You are not to good at the reality thing.

    All of you have missed the mark all together. Businesses do not pay taxes. Not one single one does. People do. Every tax, every day is paid for lock stock and barrel by people. The tax burden shifts to the people in the price of goods and services. By the time anything reaches your shelf its price is masking about a 22% tax made up of all the taxes on the companies that produce every component of the product you buy.

    Absolutely correct. They don’t really PAY taxes, they COLLECT them !

    Do you think Reagan would even be nominated in today’s political climate ? I suspect he would be deemed to ‘liberal’. Just wondering.
