Only a #$%$ like you thinks someone on welfare should get more in tax rebates than they ever paid in. YOU are very generous with other people's money unc. How about you put more in than you take and shut it?
Those wing nut talk show hosts, like Limpball and Beck, are multi-millionaires themselves who have put their own interest ahead of USA. They are not #$%$ and surely understands the following:
Payroll and sales taxes are regressive, and the dirty little secret is that over the last several decades they have made up a greater and greater share of federal revenues. In 1950, payroll and other federal retirement contributions constituted 10.9 percent of all federal revenues. By 2007, the last “normal” economic year before federal revenues began falling, they made up 33.9 percent. By contrast, corporate income taxes were 26.4 percent of federal revenues in 1950. By 2007 they had fallen to 14.4 percent. So who has skin in the game?
inancial sharks typically take their compensation in the form of capital gains rather than salaries, thus knocking down their income-tax rate from 35 percent to 15 percent. But that’s not the only way Mr. Skin-in-the-Game benefits: the 6.2 percent Social Security tax and the 1.45 percent Medicare tax apply only to wages and salaries, not capital gains distributions.
