In Response to Re: GOP focusing on income tax reform:
How very timely of the GOP to suddenly want income tax reform...anyone who'd buy this load needs meds. There is absolutely NO excuse now for the corporations who take our tax dollars by the tons to not hire or create jobs and most of all, not to increase their workers salaries. What's the excuse now? They are rolling in dough...most of which was aided by massive dole outs of our tax dollars.
That class warfare load is just that. The rich tell us to learn to live within "our" means? When they don't bother to even try to live within theirs? How is that not an elitist excuse for living high on the hog by the only means they have going for them....the cheapest labor they enforce on Americans and no benefits. All why the gouge prices on their services and goods every 90 days?
When exactly do they think enough is enough. I no longer buy it if I don't need. I refuse to pay a single dime for some hotcha rich boy's name attached to clothing, shoes or anything else. The middle class is tapped out and still these greedheads demand more. How about we force them to tap into their profits to pay for their own corporate expenses instead of begging bailouts and handouts of tax subsidies/

Quite a diatribe ,but not the topic.
Do you think the income tax code is effective ,fair, or simple? It has so many pages of things that have nothing to do with the basic purpose of raising government funds that nobody knows or understands the whole thing . All those "bailouts and handouts of tax subsidies " and the deductions,rebates etc. don't belong in the code. If subsidies incentives( deductions) are needed and can be afforded they should be part of the whole budget spending and passed openly and monitored for effectiveness.
At least the GOP is looking at more than the taX RATES which are a small part of the problem of too little return from the income tax which is primarily because nobody pays the listed rates on all their income.
I'm with you on not buying more than I need , but I'm glad to see the wealthy spend more!
I never was in favor of the "bail outs" and know that there are other causes for all the job loss and economic amalaise
