(Fox News)   Turns out that Mitt Romney pays a higher tax rate than 97% of you. Who are you going to believe, FoxNews backed up by the IRS, or your own 1040?   (foxnews.com) divider line 514

Rev.K: FTA:

While Romney may or may not pay less than the average middle-class earner -- depending on how one defines middle class and how one defines tax rate -- one thing is clear: Romney does pay at a lower rate than the typical wealthy person.

SCIENCE!!


How do YOU define effective tax rate? curious.

Monkeyhouse Zendo: relcec: Kibbler: Nice try, Fox.

"IRS data from 2010 shows someone making between $50,000 and $75,000 on average pays an effective rate of 7.8 percent."

The percentage of people making $50,000 to $75,000 per year who know that's bullshiat is *checking clipboard* 100%.

you may be an idiot if you think that's bullshiat.

People in the $50K-$75K range generally consider FICA to be part of their income tax. Technically it isn't but it's still a tax and you're still paying it to the federal government. Fox was trying to pull a fast one by leaving out FICA which is something like 7.5% (too lazy to look it up).


yeah, they are pulling a "fast one" by not including things that you admit shouldnt be included?

If you guys have to try THIS hard to make fox look bad, it takes away credence from your complaints when they actually ARE that bad.

It is bullshiat. HOUSEHOLDS making 50K to 75K per year only pay 7.8%, but that's the total income for the entire family. People making 50K to 75K tend pay a lot more, either because they're single, or there's two of them in a family, boosting the household income to $100K ro $150K.


what I just said. Again. over and over in this thread. If you have to change what they are saying to make it a lie, its not a lie.

But, sure, keep telling yourself that poor old Mittens actual effective tax rate is close to 50% due to double taxation from corporate taxes. It's what will resonate the best with the working class man.

There is math involved, so you might want to get some coffee first if you want to try and discount the study. Or you can accept it as fact, and realize that up to 75% of corporate taxes burden falls to labor, not capital. And therefore, considering that the corporate tax rate is actually an effective tax rate of ~25% for most companies, and you will start to realize your arguments concerning poor Romney and his over taxed millions is....mostly crap.

relcec: purple kool-aid and a jigger of formaldehyde: relcec: Monkeyhouse Zendo: relcec: how can you not know what fica is? and think it is income tax? have you ever worked?

People know what it is, they just tend to lump it in with their income tax. Don't be obtuse.

I'm not being obuse. you don't even have the slightest f*cking clue how much the tax is yet you are saying I'm playing dumb intentionally because I don't except that not everyone is as ignorant as you. the majority fo folks are not as ignorant as you. they know income tax is different from FICA. I knew what fica was and what the percentage was and that the company I worked for kicked in the other half when I was 17. jesus.

You're kind of a dick.

I'm an asshole,
and so is anyone that thinks who thinks the majority of the population is a bunch of dumbasses just because they happen to be ignorant about fairly commonly understood tax.
who the f*ck goes around saying *well I haven't bothered to google or ask anyone on earth a simple question about a tax I get dinged with even though I've seen massive amounts of my income removed from my pocket for about a decade, so I'm gonna just gonna assume everyone must be ignorant like me. furthermore the article is being deceptive in not assuming that everyone is similarly like me.*
I'll tell you who; an asshole.


You mad bro?

Is it a tax that exists for me because I have an income?
Then it's an income tax.

Otherwise I wouldn't pay it now would I?

xtragrind: mrshowrules: Conservatives get to pick which wars are started. Liberals get to decide tax rates. Fair?

Did you forget all the libs that voted for that war in Congress? Ah liberal forgetfulness....


This is the lie that bothers me the most. No one voted for an unconditional authorization of force. The use of force was authrorized as a threat to get inspectors on the ground to verify whether or not there were weapons of mass destruction or to remove said weapons. George Bush went ahead and waged war even after it was appearant that there were no WMD's.

Do not lie and act like liberal voted for the war that was waged, it is all on Bush and the neocons.

You've hurt my heart. I'll go back to the corner, but I'm crying this time.

I'm in the 53% but just barely. I'd be willing to trade my income tax rate and salary with nearly anyone else in the 53%.

Strange that there are no takers.....

The whole farking argument out of the GOP'ers is entirely disingenuous.
