[QUOTE=dcJet;3751181]OMG, $2,000 more in taxes for a single guy making 250K a year. Oh, the burden!
Plumber's right. An extra 4% is not a big deal to merit the level of b!tching about this. If you're making 250K and single, that extra 2K in taxes isn't a killer. And that 250K is AGI so single guy is probably making 275-300K gross.[/QUOTE]
I'm cool taxing other people at 100% because they're not me and I don't really care as long as I'm not paying more.
Do you really pretend to know what other people can and can't afford? Do you know what they are carrying in student loans? Are they taking care of parents, relatives? Are they saving enough for retirenment so society doesn't have to provide toilet paper and an illegal immigrant to wipe them? Are they buying cool stuff built by Union labor that creates jobs? Do they own their own business and employ people and pay benifits?
I love paying for stuff particularly good stuff that I like. I hate paying for crap and paying more for crap because someone else thinks I can afford it.
Our Government right now is crap. If I ordered my government from Amazon and they sent it to me I would return it and ask for a refund. I certainly wouldn't keep ordering the same crap over and over again at every higher prices.
