Increasing Tax for Rich people

39 posts in this topic

The real question regarding Romney's income is should dividend income be taxed at a rate higher than it is now. To be honest, I am not sure of the answer to that question.

sorry... the mormon church doesn't count as "charity."

It does as much as any other church.

Don't like churches being charities....can understand that. But, thinking one is ok and another is not is ridiculous.

And, for those of you who think that the Mormon Church is any more of a cult than any other religion has no idea what they are talking about. I do....because I attended the church as a teenager and know what they REALLY believe and not the ill informed sound bites that are floating around out there.

Understood, and to be honest I have no idea how the wealthy are charged when it comes to ss and medicare.

Considering Romney lives in Mass, I bet he does pay a hefty state tax though.

The SS and Medicare taxes are a big issue and area of debate. Because they are capped at just over $110k, the effective rate that the wealthy pay for this tax is much, much less than the average person.

Raising the limit is a huge issue to me, because it would be a significant tax increase.

Yeah but Medicare is one of the "good"* handouts for conservatives.

*good being defined as giving things to white baby boomers more than minorites.

Hey, all you conservatives. Clear something up for me real quick. You say you love babies but you turn around and eat babies. Why is that?

Explain that to us, why don't ya?
