Again Obama has the average person who isn’t up on their politics and/or is just thrilled to hear “Yay! let the rich person pay for it all!” happy to jump on his re-election campaign strategy blissfully unaware that it is a charade!
Who the hell is Buffet and why is he the poster child for taxes and tax rules? If he wants to pay more taxes . . . good for him, DO IT! Don’t just talk about it, walk the walk and talk the talk. perhaps if he would pay his back taxes . . . that might be a good first step to believablity. First of all if truth be told, it’s not taxes that he pays less than his secretary of, it’s Capital Gains. That’s apples and oranges. He pays a different type of taxes, yes because he makes much more money.
Obama’s Buffet Rule and The Millionare & Billionaire Tax Rule is not just for them, the rich. It is much more complex and is taxing people over $250,000 which is by no means rich in this world today.
Yes, that may seem rich to some people who are making so much less. But is it fair for some people to decide what they think richer people should be paying? Why is the Government raping the people of the country pell-mell? Why should people who may have earned their way up the ladder after working 30 years in a corporation pay more and more taxes to help the government waste on Goddess alone knows what? Why should the public pay more and more taxes because the GOVERNMENT can’t stop spending?
I don’t know? Perhaps a flat tax would make more sense? Something has to make more sense.
But people who are in the lower tax brackets hear RICH and jump right on class warfare, thinking these people should pay more? WHY? Because they are successful? If lower income people were suddenly more successful or rich, say they won the lottery, would they WANT to pay more taxes? Hell no! I’m sure they’d then realize how unfair it is to be penalized for being successful, lucky or rich!
So before all the uninformed people jump on the Obama Jobs band wagon and The Buffet Rule they should learn the ins and outs of it. It is all a sham and they shouldn’t hate the rich, they are not inherently evil, isn’t that everyone’s dream, to be successful and have money? Would you, if you were suddenly rich, be willing to give 50% of it away to our wasteful government, to spend on ridiculous solar companies and social services? Honestly?
Facebook has a link called WORKING FAMILIES: (New York) Tell Your Government to Support the Buffet Rule . . . just proving the ignorance of Face Book. I wonder why I ONLY go there to play games and send my BLOG link? Now I know I’m RIGHT!
Even the Huffington Post agrees that millionaires pay higher taxes than their secretaries. And it seems that people making around $327,000 seem to pay the highest percentage of taxes at around 35%. That is the true middle salaries of this country, when you figure poor and millionaires, and they are the truly screwed! These are the people who carry the country, the upper middle class!
The President’s New Tax Bill is going to penalize people who are making money, small business owners and the successful by taking away many deductions. Before people blindly follow the class warfare of hating they should RESEARCH! The new rules are going to take away charitable deductions which will hurt the poor! The list goes on and on! They will take away writing off interest on your mortgage . . .that’s the only reason to own a house! That’ll really help the housing market . . . go figure.
Obama is ignorant, maybe evil and a loser! His plans are a failure!

Some famous person somewhere, at some time in history said something along the lines of: If you let the have-nots decide whether or not to take money from the haves. the haves are going to end up having a lot less. Or something like that.
Unfortunately, I believe you are correct and that is exactly what is happening NOW!! Thanks for reading! Evie
Most of you republicans are hateful mean-spirited people, not all of course, but a great majority of you and you spew hatefulness in the name of God. Just terrible.
I’m NOT a Republican. . . I’m an Independent Conservative but believe that the only person who has a real chance running against Obama is a Republican. I am NOT hateful nor mean spirited, but thank your for your open-mindedness! Obviously you haven’t read enough of my blogs to get to know me. If you had, you’d see that Herman Cain is one of my FAVORITE Republican candidates, so if you are trying to insinuate anything there you have it also, I have called the Republican candidates boobs! I do not like Obama on his POLICIES, nothing else perhaps you should remove your blinders and glasses you look through! I’d love to know the reason you voted for him? And are you HAPPY you did? If you would read some of my other blogs or have, which I doubt, you’d see, except for politics, I’m usually very silly and light-hearted! I also think I’m pretty self-aware, how about you?
