Dancin_In_Anson: Snarcoleptic_Hoosier: The part of the fairtax is that after the elimination of income and business taxes, companies will magically lower the prices as opposed to tacking on the new tax rate, shrugging their shoulders and pocketing the savings.

This is also addressed in the book. Perhaps you should read it too.


No thanks. I'm still working on the Twilight saga to scratch the "magic and delusions for teenagers" itch.

Tom_Slick: The Obamas paid 18.4% Bidens 22% Romney is probably somewhere in the low teens, it is shiat like this that really pisses me off about the US tax code.  When I was a fresh college grad making $27,500 a year living in a shiatty one bedroom apartment driving a 10 year old beater I was paying over 30% taking advantage of every last loophole and deduction.


You were a college freshman in 1946?

Lawyers With Nukes: Wow, just wow. The hypocrisy of the POTUS & FLOTUS is just too delicious for words.

Popcorn Johnny: So Obama pays less in taxes than somebody making 40k per year and Farkers still line up to suck his manhood? Sounds about right.


What is it with Obama's critics and they're massive obsession with his penis?

I don't know why I'm looking at someone else's tax returns, but for some reason the "Your Occupation: US PRESIDENT  Spouse's occupation: US FIRST LADY" cracks me up.

kronicfeld: It's also worth noting that Obama didn't elect not to claim his charitable contributions on his tax return in order to artificially inflate his own tax rate while people were watching, leaving himself free to later amend his return and claim it after all.


Somehow I missed that part, but since it was stated right there in the effing article how much he claimed for charitable deductions, I'm not sure what I missed???

But keep at it.  I'm sure if you spin and troll long enough, I'll finally realize that he is, in fact, black.

Debeo Summa Credo: Christ you people are farking stupid. Capital gains and dividends were already taxed at the corporate level. So you need to add corporate taxes to Romney's (and Obama's, to the extent any of their income was from such income) to get an appropriate comparison.

Dont bother posting that cartoon that proves my point even though you think it proves yours. Just answer me this: how much of each dollar in pretax corporate income do you believe should end up in the pockets of owners, and how much should be taken by government? Be precise. Throw out a number.

/to the extent Romneys earnings were on carried interest, then that is a different story


Capital gains weren't taxed at the corporate level.

I buy buy stock in DSC Corporate Cocksuckers at $10 a share. Your business is so good that 5 years later I sell it at $100 a share. The income I derive from the increase in the value of the stock never passes through the hands of DSC Corporate Cocksuckers to be taxed.

SlothB77: Romney isn't a hypocrite, before he supported low taxes.  Obama is a hypocrite, because he supports tax hikes for the rich.

ManRay: Godamammit so much. When are we going to stop burning calories over who pays what tax rate? The current tax code has so many deductions, exceptions, loopholes, ins and outs that it makes the whole subject useless to discuss without talking about wholesale reform.
