Understanding the Democratic Tax Plan post #1  quote:



If you don't understand the Democrats' version of tax cuts (and you are not alone), maybe this will help explain it for you:

50,000 people go to a baseball game, but the game was rained out. A refund was then due. The team was about to mail refunds when the Congressional Democrats stopped them and suggested that they send out refund amounts based on the Democrat National Committee's interpretation of fairness. After all, if the refunds were made based on the price each person paid for the tickets, most of the money would go to the ticket holders of the most expensive tickets. That would be unconscionable.

People in the $10 seats will get back $15, because they have less money to spend. Call it an "Earned" Income Ticket Credit." Persons "earn" it by demonstrating little ambition, few skills and poor work habits, thus keeping them at entry-level wages.

People in the $25 seats will get back $25, because that's only fair.

People in the $50 seats will get back $1, because they already make a lot of money and don't need a refund. If they can afford a $50 ticket, then they must not be paying enough taxes.

People in the $75 luxury seats will have to pay another $50, because they have way too much to spend.

The people driving (or walking) by the stadium who couldn't afford to watch the game will get $10 each, even though they didn't pay anything in, because they need the most help. (Sometimes known as Affirmative Action)

Now do you understand? If not, contact Representative Richard Gephardt, Senator Tom Daschle or Senator...

I would be careful Ron you might get labeled as a mean spirited evil Republican. I mean come on its only fair that the producers in this country be taxed higher than everyone else. Its a wonder why our corporations are going over seas... but go ahead Dems... just keep on taxing, and taxing, then when the corporations leave to try to cut cost b/c of exessive taxes blame it on the greedy rich. And another thing, how does it inspire someone to be productive when the higher income earners get taxed for half of what they earn?

Question to americans:
How much income taxes do you pay if you earn $30,000 a year? $50,000? $100,000? What are the legal ways to reduce the amount of taxes to be paid? Is income tax same in every state or different?

This may be easier:

Democrats want to streamline tax collection;here's their form:

Line one: Name and Birthdate and SS #
Line two:Total Gross Earnings
Line Three: Send it In

Easy,right?....so keep on working;we need more social programs!Open up the borders,lets feed them all!Give them free medical care/education/food stamps...leave no illegal behind!
