But as long as you brought it up, the GOP idea of "broaden the tax base" is really just the most logical interpretation of Obama's plea for "everyone to pay their fair share." How paying zero taxes is "paying your fair share" only makes sense to the most ideologically saturated lefty.
The irony of this line of reasoning coming from the man who would have you believe he singlehandedly flew the chopper, rappelled down the rope and killed bin laden with his bare hands....it's comical.
This guy is an absolute clownf-ck of a president
Now, feel free to insult me again, talk about your business accumen, and explain how jobs are created when all wealthy people, even those not specificly investing in or owning business, pay less taxes.

When I had my own lab, I got essentially all of the credit while my students did most of the legwork. Likewise my mentor got most of the credit when I was up in the wee hours working in his lab.
In my field, the successes are few(unfortunately) but the credit is split between me and the drug. Do you think the professor who found the receptor that the drug targets (without him/her, the drug would not exist) gets any credit at all? No credit and certainly little monetary reward (the CEO of the pharma gets much more than all those who collaborated to make the drug, combined).
Obama is dead on right with this statement.
And you are a self-described Socialist. You believe in the ideal of collectivism.
Of course you're going to agree Ken.
One has to ask though, why would you allow credit due your student to go to you instead? I assume, good collectivist that you are, that you compensated those students for that work fiscally, right, thus reducing inequallity of wealth and reducing their student loan debt? You certainly didn't profit from their work knowingly, did you, thus increasing unequal wealth distribution on the backs of your students labor?
How very Republican of you if you did. Someone should tell the State, so that credit and reward can be taken from you, and redistributed to those poor abused prole students you took advantage of and profited on.
Although the rich in America pay the most taxes in total, even more of a % than they own, paying more taxes to B. Hussein and the Bloombergs and Cuomos of the world doesnt "create" jobs.
More work to be done than current assets can handle?
Current private sector labor assets are said to be already overdeployed, doing the work of 1.5/2 workers. (in libspeak, exploited) Try factoring in the costs of these workers. If 0 care makes it untenable to hire more on top of UI and employer taxes, more won't get hired. That is why so many sought waivers. Also the costs of doing business - utilities, gas, materials etc.
When govt. decides it needs more workers to accomplish whatever task it is assigned to perform, and (one would hope) has the budget space to pay for?
You've got to be kidding me! That's where the Hope stuff comes in
They are paid for w/ debt. Nothing to do with necessity, task completion, or budget.
Heading into Bit territory here...keep up the laffs!
I agree. At no point have I contradicted that claim.Although the rich in America pay the most taxes in total, even more of a % than they own, paying more taxes to B. Hussein and the Bloombergs and Cuomos of the world doesnt "create" jobs.
Thank you. I appreciate the compliment, for while Bit and I may be far apart in viewpoint, he was one of my most favorite people here to converse with.Heading into Bit territory here...keep up the laffs!
I'd rather have him back at JI than just about anyone whose left us. I'd certainly trade any number of current posters to get him back. It's to my longstanding dissapointment that my own use of tactics similar to your own, I think, is in part responsible for his moving on to J.N permanently.
TLDR: I don't see being comapred to Bit as an insult. So thanks.
