TheStag: Who is this 'Fiscal Cliff' and why does he have so much control of my taxes? Can't we just find him and kick his a$$ or something?
olddinosaur: Okay Farkers, here comes the economics:No person pays taxes if he can pass along the costs, so if you tax the producer, he increases his prices and you have to pay.That means everything you buy is more expensive, and unless you have a way to increase your own income, you are up shirt creek. Klar?You cannot overrule the laws of economics any more than you can declare gravity to be a hoax and jump off a tall building without expectation of disaster.
Amos Quito: What is a "sane" rate?
MindStalker: This will save us more money than closing a million planned parenthood's.
smitty04: Amos Quito: I say we impose a 100% tax on everyone and everything, and then create a caring, compassionate government bureaucracy that will fairly distribute to each according to his need.It's the only reasonable solution.Soon you have no one working. What would be the point. Forced labor camps would be the only solution, it worked in the USSR.
sycraft: Ya I'm ok with this. While paying higher taxes isn't fun, it is needed. We need to increase the amount we pay. In fact, as in indicated by the temporary nature, we paid this amount not too long ago. I'm fine with my taxes going up.
