I do, and yeah, I do wonder why this can't be pushed through. What I wish the public would be given is some kind of specifics on how many loopholes and deductions are being offered to be killed. I feel like the public isn't getting all the information we deserve in this.

As a republican...I fully support ending these deductions:
mortgage interest deductions over a dollar amount ($200,000?)
no mortgage interest deductions on second homes (only primary residence allowed)
Single parent=1 child deduction, married=2 child deductions, no deductions allowed on children 3 and up

There are others, but that's just a start.

I can't believe we haven't stopped these already. Barry said no to this?

That needs to happen AND, they need to pay their share, not more, but their share. NOT %14 or less. That is the issue. Until they are paying what the rest of the country is, in terms of %, no less no more, then I doubt he budges. So yes, removing loopholes and whatnot will get it closer to the goal, it's only half of the issue.



It's quotes like these that make me wonder if many liberals understand the tax codes as they stand.

Especially when 47 percent of the country doesn't pay taxes at all.

It's this whole..."fair share" thing that drives me crazy.

What is everyone's fair share? How much is enough?

Washington would much rather go after our hard earned dollar than cut programs, jobs, debts, etc.

If you want to complain about other people's lack of knowledge you could at least bother to get your own facts right.

You'd be hard-pressed to find a single person in this country who pays no taxes, outside of small children. Hell I payed 14 cents in taxes already today

The real issue is, the whole tax thing needs blown up and rebuilt from the ground up, but good luck getting people to agree on anything.
