SevenizGud: They just don't report their income from their drug-running and theft.
Elandriel: Huh, I'm already below the line detailed in TFA at $29,662/yr with 2 kids. Awesome.Farkers, I have a conundrum. How will I be able to pull myself up by the bootstraps when I can't afford boots?
sweetmelissa31: Cythraul: If they get their way, looks like I'm going to have to look for a second job just so I can pay the extra taxes. Oh well, life sucks.See, they are getting you to work harder!

Vlad_the_Inaner: Weaver95: poor people not paying any taxes - OMG! OH MY F*CKING GOD! THIS IS THE END OF EVERYTHING!rich corporations not paying any taxes - hey, we can't tax corporations, that would be communism! you aren't a commie, are you? no taxes on corporations!*sigh*look, if the GOP wants to go this route, then lets tax people who actually HAVE money. that includes corporations.Geesh, if you're going to satirize on them, include the 'no double taxation!' malarkey "It gets taxed when our shareholders are taxed" They already have a schtick for that.
vpb: Yes, but they can become car jackers and muggers and that will create jobs by increasing the demand for guns.
Grand_Moff_Joseph: Mangoose: But what would it do for the other 290 million people?Well, if you put those 9.2 million people back under the poverty line, they'll have absolutely no money to spend on anything, which means they fall off the grid as consumers. Their lack of consumer activity will severely impact businesses of all types, leading to decreased revenues. the reduced business activity will lead to more job losses, which will put more people in danger of poverty, thus beginning the cycle again.So, to sum up: If you put 9.2 million more people into poverty and remove their ability to earn net income, the other 290 million folks will be farked as well.
