    HOS? There hasn't been any name calling, backstabbing or the like! (Well, except Russ calling everyone morons)

    Dangit Russ, it's all your fault!!!

    BTW, tax code has but one correct answer. Whether it is ethically correct is an entirely different beast...

    Scott, after re-reading all your posts, this is the summary of the points I'm getting from you (Please correct as it doesn't make sense in my head):

    1). Joe worker works his butt off and only gets to keep seventy cents on the dollar
    2). Joe worker is paying for Mary, the homeless crack mama's eighteen kids
    3). This is outragous so Joe shouldn't have to pay for it
    4). Rich people should
    5). Why? Because they are evil and keeping Joe down.
    6). Another reason: the rich keeping fifty five cents out of every dollar is still too high.

    That's how I'm reading your argument. BTW, I hope no one you know (mentioned) gets audited by the IRS.
    There is no genuine justice in any scheme of feeding and coddling the loafer whose only ponderable energies are devoted wholly to reproduction. Nine-tenths of the rights he bellows for are really privileges and he does nothing to deserve them. We not only acquired a vast population of morons, we have inculcated all morons, old or young, with the doctrine that the decent and industrious people of the country are bound to support them for all time.-Menkin

    Depending on how one classifies "the poor" this is at best difficult.

    However, I've always thought that for those that are on programs like wellfare, that they be conditional on having no more children. You have more children, you're off the program.

    I'm not opposed to paying more taxes in terms of dollars ... where it becomes objectionable is that the dollars that one pays in taxes goes up faster than income does i.e. the marginal tax rate gets higher as one makes more as in the example in the lead post.

    I agree %100.

    No, I feel the wealthy should pay the same as the average Joe. I have nothing against them at all. Except I wish I were wealthier myself.
    I got audited last year and they could not get a single penny from me. I even found out I had a few more deductions out their but it would have not gotten me much more.
    I just hope SS is around when I retire.

    Wait a sec ...

    The same what ? Dollars ? Percentage ?

    Quite frankly I'd be happy to trade either the dollars or percentage paid in taxes with almost anyone out there making less.

    This happens a lot. I wonder how they do it. Obviously, it is a program and not a real person. What algorithm do they have that finds these old threads.
