    when it comes to many of these things, the cost would just be passed onto the end buyer

    in that regard, I really appreciate having my drunkenness subsidized by the government....

    Speaking of Oracle/Larry Ellison.. yesterday was in Newport and happened to ride by his "Newport House", formerly Mrs. Astors Beachwood and it was completely being rebuilt by legions of skilled workers...

    Bet somehow when it is all said and done he will get some tax credits for all of this as it will probably be considered a "National Treasure" even though now it is considered taxable...

    Beechwood's owner has museum plan - NewportRI.com l News and information for Newport, Rhode Island: Features

    I has been proven that the top 1% get 17% of the tax breaks.... the rich get richer.

    conveniently left out is the overall tax burden of the top 1%

    I believe the tax burden of the top 1% exceeds that of the bottom 95%

    and you 2 are still complaining.....LMAO

    But the top 1% get 17% of all tax breaks, somehow in your world that is equality..

    IMO we should go back to the old system, pay as you go.. no debt, but Ronnie Reagan changed that..

    Well we really started running deficits under LBJ, with Nam, Great Society and Medicare, but no matter.


    This sort of thing will continue until the politicians no longer can play with the tax system, and have the ability to direct trillions of tax payer money towards their constituents.

    A Flat Tax or repealing the 16 th amendment and replacing personal income taxes with a consumption tax would go a long way towards solving this problem.

    It would stop if we switched to the gold standard ... that's why they won't switch.

    It really started when Reagan shifted the tax burden to business and raised the capitol gains tax... and decided to pay it forward to the next generation(s).....

    In 1980 the wealthiest americans were taxed at 70% and in 1988 they were taxed at 28%... that extra money was supposed to trickle down, but most of us still wait.
