    The taxpayers actually left a generous banquet out there. They WANT to pay for Christmas. They VOTED to pay for Christmas. It’s only Ebenezer Scrooge who claims that nobody wants these things.

    This is grossly inaccurate. He should be asking, “Where do you keep the tofu?”

    B.S. Bush did not put the cost of the two wars he started on the books. Get some facts before you spout off. Obama has actually reduced the deficit that he inherited from Bush. He also not lnly reduced the job losses, but has been gaining jobs.

    Thank you. Also, from what I’ve heard from (outside the bubble), these taxpayers would have to be making over $250k to have their filet mignon up for discussion, AMT not withstanding. Back to work, all of you!

    Ha. All the donkey found at the billionaire’s house was some leftover Boston Market chicken.

    than the 1%…I don’t mind paying my share…do you?

    “If you make over $60,000 a year you are in the top 10% of wage earners.If your on SS the first $25,000 isn’t taxed.Then come the deductions.Tax the rich.”

    Obviously you aren’t retired and I don’t know what your generic definition of rich is, but typically today the average Social Security recipient isn’t “rich.” Quite the contrary, an increasing number are having to work as well as draw SS just to get by.
    Guaranteed there will be a huge backlash from the senior citizens if they try to include tax increases on earned income, cap gains or dividends on the 65+ crowd. Politicians of both parties know how powerful the seniors lobby is. Aside from that, they will energetically/vocally protest such changes. Yes, I am 66, still working part time and far, far away from rich. In fairness, I worked my butt off and paid taxes on money that I saved for my retirement. Personally I think seniors should be in the lowest tax brackets, we’ve already paid lots of taxes for decades…

    ^ Not meaning to pick on you, but doesn’t everybody believe they should be in the lowest tax brackets? Human nature, I believe.
    Anyway: Willard paid 13% OVERALL, meaning that he avoided those pesky brackets altogether. One could also infer that he would release only the return that made him look best, so his other returns may have been more outrageous.
    You can be pretty sure that the Koch Brothers, Sheldon Adelson and other less visible residents of those income levels pay similar percentages of their incomes.
    Republicans/Fox “news” viewers greatly admire this situation for reasons I don’t comprehend.

    Wonder what he smokes in his pipe?”

    Thanks to Arlo Guthrie, and apologies if I misquoted the last line…..
