Today I Inspire to see Barack Obama get the keys to the White House!!

President Bush will go down as the absolute worst president ever!

President Nixon who has been dead since 1994 can finally rest in peace.

Bush stole the election in Florida and it came down to one state because of

the FEAR tactics that the Republican Party used. Al Gore was the peoples

President, clearly winning the poplular vote. America was reintroduce to the

Electorial college in that election and it showed just what a joke the

Electorial college is. Why shold it come down to middle america? I am

not saying it should be dominated by the big states either. If the big

states were the way to the Big House, then the little states woud be ignored.

Well here comes Barack Obama, a constitutional Harvard Lawyer that knows

how to play the game the way it was meant to be played. They will probably

find a way to change the rulesafter they lose the Pres election.

Bush and his croonies have almst Bancrupt the nation, with the gas prices,

tax welfare for the rich, and going to war with a country that did not attack

us on 9/11.  America is sick and tired of the lies and games that these sick

tyrants play. Americans will show just how sick we are when the vote comes

through today for Barack Obama. They will not be able to steal this one. He

has big money on his side.

So Bush needs to put an ad on Craigslist.org and start looking for movers.

I am sure C. Rice will be ther to hep him!

Oh.. and please hurray up.. Mchele needs to get the last of the

measurements!!  lol

It won’t be close   Barack Obama  310      Johh McCain    220

Middle Class Tax Share Set to Rise
Studies Say Burden Of Rich to Decline
by Dana Milbank and Jonathan Weisman
  
Three successive tax cuts pushed by President Bush will leave middle-income taxpayers paying a greater share of all federal taxes by the end of the decade, according to new analyses of the Bush administration’s tax policies.
As critics of the tax cuts in 2001, 2002 and 2003 have noted, the very wealthiest Americans — those earning $337,000 or more per year — will be the greatest beneficiaries of the changes in the nation’s tax laws. And, as administration officials have argued, low-income taxpayers will also enjoy a disproportionately lighter tax burden.


Conservatives and liberals alike agree that Bush’s tax policies have shifted more of the tax burden to the middle class.

 

The result is that a broad swath of lower-middle, middle- and upper-middle-income people, as well as some rich Americans, will carry a greater share of the federal tax burden after the laws passed in the past three years are fully implemented. While taxes are scheduled to decline for all income groups, those earning more than $28,000 but less than $337,000 will end up paying a greater share of the taxes than they did before the changes.

The findings, by two groups that have been critical of the Bush administration’s tax policies, add a new wrinkle to the increasingly contentious debate over the fairness of Bush’s tax policies and which income groups would benefit most.

Liberal groups have argued that the Bush administration is penalizing the poor while rewarding the rich. In part to answer those critics, Republicans have targeted the poor with expanded tax refund checks for families with children, a new 10 percent tax bracket and a larger earned-income credit for married couples who are poor.

The result may be a surprise to both sides: By the end of the decade, the middle class will be picking up a greater share of the government’s tab.

“It’s hard to get a lot of progressivity at the very top,” said R. Glenn Hubbard, the architect of Bush’s most recent tax cut proposal and a former chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers. By slashing taxes on dividends, capital gains and inheritances, the cuts ensure that tax burdens will no longer rise consistently with income, as they would with a perfectly “progressive” system. “But,” Hubbard added, “we’ve very much retained progressivity overall because so much money was dumped into the bottom rates.”

The two studies focused on separate issues. Citizens for Tax Justice examined the percentage changes in total federal taxes that would be paid by different income groups through 2010. The Tax Policy Center, jointly run by the Brookings Institution and the Urban Institute, looked at the share of federal taxes that would remain for the various groups once those changes are fully phased in. But the studies reached similar conclusions.

Citizens for Tax Justice found that for the lowest fifth of taxpayers — those earning below $16,000 — federal taxes would fall 10 percent between now and 2010, while federal taxes for those in the second quintile — earning between $16,000 to $28,000 — would fall 12 percent. At the other end of the scale, the decline for the top 1 percent of taxpayers — those making $337,000 and up — would be 15 percent.

In contrast, for taxpayers earning between $45,000 and $337,000, the decline would be 7 percent, less than half the cut reaped by the very wealthy.

Citizens for Tax Justice assumed that those provisions in the tax laws scheduled to expire before 2011 would expire as scheduled, although administration officials have said they are determined to make those changes permanent.

The Tax Policy Center assumed that all proposed tax cuts would become permanent. It found that the share of federal taxes paid by the top 1 percent of taxpayers would drop to 22.8 percent of the total in 2011, from 24.3 percent today, while the share paid by the lowest 40 percent would fall to 2 percent, from 2.2 percent.

All others would have a slightly larger proportion of the federal tax burden in 2011 than they do today. For families earning between $22,955 and $80,903, their share of federal taxes would rise from 25.5 percent to 26.1 percent.

Both groups included all federal income, payroll, corporate and estate taxes; Citizens for Tax Justice also included excise taxes.

Treasury Department officials said the studies are skewed because they include Social Security and Medicare payroll taxes, which the tax cuts did not seek to reduce. Pamela F. Olson, the assistant Treasury secretary for tax policy, said that if Social Security taxes are included, then Social Security benefits should also be measured. “Then you would have a very progressive system,” she said.

Instead, Olson pointed to the Treasury’s analysis of the impact of successive tax cuts on individual income taxes only. In that analysis, all taxpayers with less than $100,000 in income are shown to be paying a smaller percentage of their income in taxes than they did before Bush took office. Households earning $100,000 or more are now paying 73.3 percent of federal income taxes, up from 70 percent.

Figuring out whether tax policy benefits the wealthy or the poor is a hotly disputed subject. Liberals favor a progressive tax system in which households pay higher tax rates and a higher share of their total income as they climb up the income ladder. By that measure, the Bush tax cuts have made the tax code less progressive. By 2011, the poorest taxpayers’ after-tax income will have risen only 0.3 percent, according to the Tax Policy Center, while household income for the richest 1 percent of taxpayers will have jumped 8.6 percent.

Conservatives say the better measure is which group winds up paying a greater proportion of the tax burden after the tax cut. The rich may get the largest dollar benefit from the tax cuts, but the top 20 percent of households will still be paying 71.5 percent of all federal taxes in 2011.

Conservatives and liberals alike agree that Bush’s tax policies have shifted more of the tax burden to the middle class. Kevin Hassett, a conservative economist with the American Enterprise Institute, said it “makes complete sense” that this would happen as a result of Bush’s policies.

Changes such as the elimination of the estate tax and the reduction of the stock-dividend tax disproportionately benefit the wealthiest 1 percent, who have the largest amount of assets and capital. Those at the other end of the income spectrum benefit disproportionately from targeted tax cuts such as the child tax credit.

With the biggest gains going to the wealthiest and to low-income taxpayers, those in the middle inevitably get a higher tax burden because they don’t qualify for the targeted tax breaks that go to the poor or the investment-related tax breaks that go to the wealthy. “The middle class is predominantly labor income,” Hassett said.

Milton Friedman

(July 31, 1912 – November 16, 2006) was an American Nobel Laureate economist and public intellectual. He is best known among scholars for his theoretical and empirical research, especially consumption analysis, monetary history and theory, and for his demonstration of the complexity of stabilization policy.[1] A global public followed his restatement of a libertarian political philosophy that insisted on minimizing the role of government in favor of the private sector. As a leader of the Chicago School of economics, based at the University of Chicago, he had a widespread influence in shaping the research agenda of the entire profession. Friedman’s many monographs, books, scholarly articles, papers, magazine columns, television programs, videos and lectures cover a broad range of topics in microeconomics, macroeconomics, economic history, and public policy issues. The Economist hailed him as “the most influential economist of the second half of the 20th century…possibly of all of it”.[2]

His views of monetary policy, taxation, privatization and deregulation informed the policy of governments around the globe, especially the administrations of Ronald Reagan in the U.S., Brian Mulroney in Canada, Margaret Thatcher in Britain, Roger Douglas in New Zealand, and Augusto Pinochet in Chile, and (after 1989) in Eastern Europe.

Greenspan, Bush 41 and Bush 43 are economic disciples of the Trickle Down Theory of Economics!

What a disaster! This economic theory almost destroyed a country!

The rich get richer and the poor get poorer, that is the whole stance of the repubican welfare system. I can not even believe that McCain has the nerve of accuse Barack Obama of Socialism! Marxist Socialism!!

Espeically after the 750 Billion handout that McCain and Bush and all of their croonies are handing out to their pals on Wall Street!

This is the highest form of TREASON! 

Taking the hard working dollors of the American workers and giving the money to the very Rich and the people that caused the disaster to happen in the first place.

This failed economic theory has never worked. Somewhere in the back of my mind, I am thinking that they may have not planned for it to work in the first place. Now that they have lined their pockets with CASH, they are taking off with the CHINA!

I think the main reason that McCain and the Republican party want to win, is that they don’t want a full investigatin of what really happened on Wall Street!

If by the help of God we are able to do a full investigation, we will find out that the true crooks that are behind this disaster planned the whole thing, and will be found guilty of their crimes.

Then finally go to jail, the place >>>>>>> WHERE THEY ALL BELONG!!! <<<<<<<<<<<<<

Now I just don’t get it! We at MyDreamAlive.com are all about motivation and inspiration. We provide a line of clothing that moves people to be whatever they want to be. At MyDreamAlive.com we are for dreams and not against them.

But what about McCain!!

Why is McCain starting the name calling and offensive verbage towards Obama now?

What happened to the “Maverick” the “Change Hero”? I thought that he agreed that elections did not have to be won with mud slinging?

Perhaps it’s because he did not win the debate last Friday, and with the Economy in the tank, McCain is ready to try and discredit Obama any way he can.

Well we are not falling for it, are we? Why doesn’t McCain do everybody a favor and realize that America does not want 4 more of the last 8 years. See where the last 8 years have gotten us?

Is anyone out there as outranged as me? Where should politicians draw the line? They should be our inspiration!

Anyone Agree?
