What about millionaires who pay no income tax?
They can't be handout seeking scum, can they?
If I have 100 million dollars, and make $0 in FY2012, why would I pay income taxes on no income?
Now, if those income rules are written badly, take it up with both (R) and (D), as they both had a hand in creating them and special interest/social engineering pork-filling them.
Of course, there is also a fundamental difference between allowing someone to keep more oftheir own income (i.e. "corporate welfare") and giving someone income and benefits they did nothing to get other than exist (i.e. actual welfare).
Some folks would like to make it seem like me getting to keep 75% of my income instead of 74% is "welfare" for me.
While those same folsk defend they guy who kept 100% of his income, and also got an additional 250% of his income from us (the state) in aid/benefits as being the better of the two morally.

Here's another thing to put in your pipe and smoke:
That's the Republican party for you. Cause a problem, then b*tch about it.Part of the reason so many Americans don’t pay federal income taxes is that Republicans have passed a series of very large tax cuts that wiped out the income-tax liability for many Americans.
Romney alienating half his electorate. Brilliant.
How ANYONE could vote for him after this video being released astounds me. Mitt Romney doesn't like half of America, he just admitted it.
In addition to that, he's a hypocritical moron.
That may be BUT his intent is to highlight the mother with 5 kids at 22 who is a crack addict. And who 5 different lovers hang out and drink and do week (crack) all day. Along with their parent who have never workered (when they weren't serving time). Multi generational welfare leeces.
Romney is NOT criticizing SS recipients unless they receive ADDITIONAL money as a refund. Why should they or anyone else get extra money back. It's a situation rife with abuse.
As usual you obviously have not a single clue as to what YOU are talking about. He paid NO taxes? really? He released two tax returns showing he paid around 14% the last two years. But since you neglected YOUR OWN education you wouldn't know that. Learn to red and comprehend please.
And again I introduce logic into an equation. libs do not understand the word because they have to told things as they can't reason: the IRS would have brought Mitt in long ago if he wasn't paying. They haven't have they? Is there a lib here who can expalin that?
When I went to school they had a trade concentration that students could do.
A variety of potential careers. For both males and females. This was available when my children were is HS as well. Yes, it is a valuable training program. So instead of chemistry, physics, calculus, foreign language etc - trade courses were taken. Some at the school, some at a nearby votech. English, math and history minimum requirements still needed to be satisfied.
In many cases jobs were ready for these students on graduation. Never going to be a bank president but run theoir own auto shop, plumbing company or a variety of options.
As here. Once again you are proving yourself a racist who refutes the liberal stupidity. Thank you.
We have (vos) them here plus where I lived in NJ (Morris County) plus still in the HS as of 6 years ago.
But libs don't know about vocation training becasue they might get their sissy hands dirty. Or do something non artsy.
I'll give PK a pass here (amazing) since though a lib he's not afraid to work, I believe.
You are so full of it. No wonder you have admitted you students are LOSERS.
If you have high AGI you pay tax. I am a milionaire. I pay tax. Lots.
Now let'say I made a million a year without a job and all my income was in tax free bonds I would pay no tax. But my reported income as per rules established long before asyone here was born woul be zero.
Bit I would be sacrificing a high total return so I could help fund municipalities which employ overpaid civil servants.
Whoa. I'm rolling on this thread. Love catching losers in failed thought processes. But it's so easy. LOL
That's why I'm getting the f*** out of this god damn office chair soon
I'll just add that I don't think society's aversion to vocational jobs as a career path is strictly a D vs. R thing. Working with your hands decreased in popularity when doing so meant that you'd have a harder time making ends meet. Plus, society has a different set of values now. Most people wouldn't bat an eye paying an extra $2,000 for leather seats in their new car or $400 for a cellphone....but get all sorts of crazy when a plumber hands them a $200 bill for servicing that red thing in the corner of the basement that makes weird noise but keeps their entire house warm and gives them hot showers all year long.
I think also that our grandparents worked very VERY hard...and then exhorted their children to seek careers where they wouldn't have to slave at the same type of thankless jobs they had. "Don't be a plumber, little Johnny. Be a lawyer or a doctor". You may see that change soon. "Don't waste thousands on a college degree, little Tucker. Pick up a vocation and start earning at age 18 instead of age 24"....
