    The Affordable Care Act IS here. As for the others, talk to your Republican representative about nothing being brought to the floor.
    But I guess if you want to hold President Obama response for everything that goes on (or doesn’t), you should include the failure to repeal ACA forty plus times.

    The ACA is anything but affordable. My insurance jumped $200 a month because of this bozo. It is time for people to pay their own way instead of the government handing everything out to those who are illegal, immoral, lazy, and unwilling.

    this is what you get for voting in a communist. im no where rich but when this bozo says that the 1% dont pay their fair share its nuts. 3% of americans pay 70% of the taxes. the lowest pay nothing get servces and even a tax return when they dont pay taxes. Its the poor that dont pay their share

    Communist? What kikapoo joy juice have you been drinking? The Dow is up 16,000. For a Commie Obama is a failure, but as a Capitalist he is a winner.

    Where do you get your figures. The richer you are the less you pay. Even as low as 0%.

    “The richer you are the less you pay. Even as low as 0%.”

    Try the Treasury Department for detailed numbers of what income brackets pay what taxes.

    “The Dow is up 16,000”


    It was about 9,000 when Obama took office. If it’s up 16,000, that must mean it’s now at 25,000!


    Wow! Obama must be a GREAT president to have achieved that kind of business success!

    “That doesn’t matter if most of your income is Capital Gains.”

    I have no idea where to go with this. It makes no sense.

    Yeah, when the FED keeps printing money like Monopoly Money, that’ll happen. Just wait till it can’t sustain itself any longer with the massive inflation it’s causing…..POP

    Mitt robme had income almost exclusively form capital gains and he paid about half the percentage of his income in taxes that I paid. That is what Genome is talking about. If you are über wealthy and can engineer your income and tax advantages you can severely decrease your federal income tax. And last I checked there were over 1000 families with incomes over $1 million who paid zero federal income taxes.

    As in Capital gains (ex pays in shares, dividends, bonuses so forth) are not taxed at the same level as income from employment or in some cases are not taxed whatsoever.

    Now for those with upper income often dividends, stock options and so forth make up the majority of income, with actual salary representing a small % of total income

    @PianoGuy24

    You mean the massive inflation of 2%, I’m sure every financial institution is clearly oblivious. Gee wiz they need better guys to read the news.

    QE has printed 4 trillion over 5 years or 800 billion (out of 16 trillion average ) , now(even considering that a large portion of the money was simply used as a slush fund by major banks) the 4 trillion over 5 years equates to 5% inflation over regular increase in money supply (now between 2000 and 2007 there was a gain of 1/3 gdp, divide 33/7 and you get about 4.7), measure these against each other and the money being printed is about a discrepancy of .3

    Considering that large amounts of USD are still being held offshore there would appear to be trust, compared to Asian markets (average of 8% inflation, India has hit as high at 17% in recent years) 2% is laughable.

    I’m aware of what capital gains are and how they’re paid. I’m just have no idea what they have to do with looking up tax brackets at the Treasury site. (Probably should have said IRS)
