"Fair Share"
« on: January 25, 2012, 08:00:32 PM »

What's yours?

Who/what gets to decide what each person's fair share is?

Can the income tax code be any less fair?  I mean over half the country pays none, and even the super rich only pay millions of dollars per year.

Idiotic platitude aimed at the unwashed masses?

I will accept what I have earned. Also I will accept more than I deserve. But definitely not less than either.

I think we should all work and put our money in a pot and Frank should decide how much we keep.

at a certain point the amount you are taxed should be proportional to the amount of wealth you own/control. 

If you don't have anything to tax you can provide a service to your community in other forms.

You're never going to "win" this argument with a liberal, by the way. They just think differently. The liberal doctrine of taxation is "from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs."

I've said it before and I'll say it again, K-State fans could have beheaded the entire KU team at midcourt, and K-State fans would be celebrating it this morning.  They are the ISIS of Big 12 fanbases.

I think what I pay now is pretty fair. The tax code is fine, imo.

Disagree.  It's clear that none of them know a single thing about the tax code.  They don't even know the difference between the effective tax rate and the marginal tax rate.  I doubt they realize that their supermajority in the senate and majority in congress extended the Bush tax cuts.

What they do know is that they have carte blanche to promise away other peoples money without recourse.  Snake oil for everyone.
