    Perhaps we could come up with new terms to replace earned and unearned income. How about workingman income and leisureman income?

    Or we could cut the military budget to a reasonable level. Dmc said he wants people to care more about where the money goes. I'd much rather it go for healthcare and old age pensions than death and...

    A flat tax might work. The federal budget is approximately 21% of GDP. Letís set it there. After all, people at the lower end of the income spectrum are already currently paying 15.3% and people at...

    I guess that's why HUD's budget is roughly half the amount that is saved by taxpayers who can afford to benefit from the mortgage interest deduction. Who exactly is subsidizing who...

    The thing i found curious about the nj/ny differences is that nj name brand gas is significantly more expensive, but in ny itís not.

    Regarding the cost of employing gas jockeys i suppose it...

    One would think so, but anyone who has purchased gas in NY and NJ is well aware that gas in NJ is actually cheaper despite the fact that NJ is all full service. So I thought maybe the gas tax in NY...

    I hate to burst your bubble since you seem to be excited that people will have the freedom to do for themselves what was once a service provided with their purchase of a product, but the details are...

    And I thought republicans were in favor of fiscal responsibility. But apparently people on both ends of the political spectrum have a poor understanding of what is important to the other side.

    Am I Disenfranchised? Possibly. Indifferent? Definitely not. If I were disenfranchised AND indifferent I'd probably look like my friend A, a millennial who has never bothered to vote because he...

    The Reagan era tax cuts, and more recently, the Brownback era tax cuts make a mockery of the claimed likely revenue increases.

    If the republicans in congress were honest they would have admitted...

    I guess there aren't any real republicans in the house or senate then, considering that almost all of them voted for fiscal irresponsibility.

    And I thought republicans were for fiscal responsibility. Apparently the times are changing.

    Considering that something like 32% of CA taxpayers itemize and the average itemization is $22,000 it's not surprising that our representatives in Sacramento would be looking for ways to deal with...

    Certainly an interesting hypothesis. And if accurate perhaps this will flip a few red states blue as democrats move from traditionally red states to traditionally blue states. (And as peurto ricans...

    And that's the crux of it. A big part of the tax scam that just passed was to give republicans an excuse to cut programs that actually help people. They certainly wont try to balance the budget on...

    Alan may be right. Perhaps the people who get a small tax break like WilliamSmith's will be happy enough with it that they won't care that 82% of the cuts went to corporations and the top 1% of...

    Such a great leader that he admitted that it was mainly about the corporate tax cut and not middle class tax cuts. While obvious to anyone with a brain it's kind of sad that he's too stupid to stick...
