taxing the rich

The progressives always promise so much stuff and say we will pay for it by taxing the rich. But when the times come to raise money they can never find enough from the rich so now the dem governor of Connecticut wants to put a sales tax on food and medicine. Tax the hungry, tax the sick. Won't you just love it when that happens nationally elcheapo. Slap a tax on that $500 box of Lantus. That'll raise some revenue. Can't do without. Don't pay it you die. Your government loves you.

Re: taxing the rich

Lets see, federal state local income taxes take 30-50%.  Then add property taxes.

What you manage to save and invest, they now want a part of that too, even though you already paid taxes on it once. And now they'll start adding a tax on the few remaining untaxed items.

Re: taxing the rich

Why do you guys defend the rich so? I don’t care that they make a lot of money. I don’t really care that much that their tax rate is 37%. What I do care about is that they usually end up paying less that I do with the deductions they can take advantage the the average low and middle class people cant.  But what I can’t understand is why you guys carry their water all the time. Your folks are spending g money like a bunch of drunken sailors but you don’t those Uber rich paying even the low 37% plus acting like they’re going to give you something.  You know they aren’t but you keep fighting to keep their taxes low.

Re: taxing the rich

Why not go a step farther than what the libs want. Instead of just taxing the rich do a one time tax and confiscate all assets of every person in this country. Then divide it all out equal to everyone. Remember this is a one time deal no more special taxes for the supposed rich all will be taxed the exact same amount. I would bet soon after that the same people will be broke and starving and the rich will become rich again. It is their stupidity that will get them in that situation. You just can't fix stupid...

Maybe  the  buying clothes for  his  W-2  form  job and  driving  his  vehicle  to  work  SHOULD  be  able  to  deduct it  - like  a  few  others  -  ?  -  -  -

 

I  agree - protect the unborn  -  then  forget them - like  the  mothers with children trying to escape the brutality of Central America  -  where is  the grace  for  these mothers and children  - A  CHURCH  OBLIGATION  -   maybe  -  ?

First schnur, your description of rich needs to be in print.
