Insatiable Jesus: Silly Jesus: [stratoserve.typepad.com image 225x292]

Conveniently, the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office released a study today showing that raising taxes on the evil rich slows the growth of the economy. Good job California.


Yeah, good on them. Since the way it works now is that an expanding economy benefits mostly the rich.


JESUS Fight!

It's "couldn't care less".
Seriously, maybe you guys SHOULD start caring about education.

Lucky LaRue: Prank Call of Cthulhu: Oh no! A MASSIVE TAX HIKE!!!

Oh my god, they finally went and did it. What did they do, raise the top bracket to 50% or something?

When you stop to consider that, the only reason California is raising the rate is because they have so many social programs handing out money and free services that they are going bankrupt, it really doesn't matter if it was a 50% hike or at 0.1% hike - it is still taking money from hard-working capitalist to fund unnecessary social programs.

What a "hard-working" California capitalist may look like.

OgreMagi: "It's only 1%, what's the big deal?"

Because they've been "only 1%" so much that we now have the 4th highest taxes in the country (behind NY, NJ, and Connecticut). It's not a farking revenue problem. It's a spending problem. The people of this state don't understand the concept of living within your means.


In other news, half of the states in the US have a higher tax rate than the average.

Why should I care about the problems of the rich? They don't care about my problems, so why should I care about theirs? A guy making 1/2 a million a year having to pay $200 more per paycheck is a perfect opportunity to play the world's smallest violin.

Yes, the poor that starve to death are acceptable collateral damage for sticking it to the rich.

Envy, how does it wurk? LOL!

Actually, this is great news. Seriously. Exactly according to the model.

I couldn't care less about your grammatical hang-ups.

Is that better?

Lucky LaRue: pacified: So a guy making $500,000 pays $5,000 more a year. BOO FARKING HOO.

Over 26 pay checks, that amounts to $192 a pay period.

So from his $19,200 pay check, $200 more is taken.

They won't even notice.

All Republicans are a sad joke.

It really isn't about the money. It's about spending it to fund inefficient systems and systems that provide zero benefit to the welfare of legal citizens. Fix your broken education system, and then ask me for money to help you make it better.


Well, luckily, the governor of California isn't asking for money from South Carolina residents.

How about before you take 1.1% of anyone's income, you stop spending public money to feed, educate, and provide medical insurance to illegal immigrants?


Name: Lucky LaRue
Location: South Carolina

Is that how you guys deal with all your illegal immigrants?

spelletrader: Silly Jesus: Cinaed: Taxing the rich doesn't impede economic growth. Yes it does.

Better to tax the fark out of the rich, and use that money to provide as much education as is warranted. Do you not think that the evil rich pass along the cost of their increased taxes?

Education is the driver here, not giving Mitt & Co. another tax break. Not raising taxes != tax break.

This turned "nuh-uh" real fast.


Nuh-uh

Ok. Hey all you illegals, please line up over here and get your naturalization. Simple process. Raise your right hand... say I agree to be a US citizen. Now please fill out your forms over on the table over there. Thank you.

Now no illegal immigrants are getting benefits. Happy?

The Democrats also somehow managed to win supermajorities in both houses of the legislature, so Prop 13 is no longer a block to getting a balanced budget.

Ooooh, I wonder if "unnecessary social programs" is going to be this year's hot buzzphrase, like "burdensome environmental regulations" was a few years ago.
