vudutek: Marcus Aurelius: After all, they're poor, not stupid.Based upon recent voting patterns, your statement may not be accurate. Far too many people have been duped into voting against their own best interests.
Mrbogey: By fiscal year 2017-2018, revenue will be cut by $462 million, further limiting what lawmakers can spend on government services such as education, transportation and health care.Read more here: http://www.newsobserver.com/2013/06/04/2938348/in-quick-house-panel-a p proves.html#storylink=cpyBecause that's the only thing that gov't spends money on.In a split vote, the Finance Committee removed a cap on tax deductions for mortgage interest, charitable contributions and property taxes. The change reduces state revenues by an additional $500 million.Read more here: http://www.newsobserver.com/2013/06/04/2938348/in-quick-house-panel-a p proves.html#storylink=cpyIt's messed up that only the rich pay property taxes, give to charity, or hold a mortgage.
Smeggy Smurf: The Fair Tax would have been a better solution. You only pay tax if you want to. The basic necessities of life are covered. The tax falls on any expenditure for lifestyle. The rich buy more, they'll pay more. It's so simple no Rapeublican or Emocrat can understand it.
Philip Francis Queeg: The legislation would set the personal income tax rate at a flat 5.9 percent, shunning the current tiered system assessing 6 percent to 7.75 percent based on income. The corporate tax rate would also decline over the course of five years to 5.4 percent, from the current 6.9 percent rate.Read more here: http://www.newsobserver.com/2013/06/04/2938348/in-quick-house-panel-a p proves.html#storylink=cpyTaxing the working poor at a higher rate than businesses. What the fark is wrong with this country?
vpb: clambam: Wow, they sure hate poor people in North Carolina.Right wingers all seem to hate the poor. I mean really hate them, like they want them dead.
Arkanaut: Oh, North Carolina, I thought you were cool getting cooler. I guess the Republicans are trying to do as much as they can before the Research Triangle turns the state blue.
Bf+: Why did I just assume this was in Wisconsin?
Slaves2Darkness: Marcus Aurelius: Eventually the poor people are going to realize that the GOP is hosing them down big time. After all, they're poor, not stupid.No, no they won't realize it, because yes, yes they are stupid. Those who are poor and are not stupid eventually end up middle class and Democrat. We have a bias against thinking people are just too farking stupid to be function members of society, but the reality is 50% of the US population are just too farking stupid.
vpb: Yes, I'm sure that will provide enough revenue for the government to run.
