Tax Relief for All Americans



Did anyone else find this pic amusing? The catch is that the tax relief is actually negligible for most Americans...

Spend, spend, spend. I thought republicans were supposed to be financially sound, but Reagan and W. blow that stereo out of the water.

If you make $20K, relief = $3, $100K, relief = $1300, $1M, relief is $42,000.

The republicans sure can sell. On their best days they can sell automated ice crushers to eskimos on a three dog night, all the while making it colder for the purchasers while absolutely convincing them they are luvin' it! You have to be amazed at the intelligence and self entitlement.

That is disgusting. I wonder how many people realize what their 'big tax cut' actually amounts to?

Don't bank on many ppl understand that, let alone the long term implications of these "tax relief". Nothing is free.

Most Americans WILL benefit from any tax relief, just as we all have from the previous round of tax cuts. Our roaring economy didn’t happen by accident and the 5 million+ new jobs created in the last couple of years didn’t magically appear. They are the direct result of reducing everyone’s taxes, no matter how much they make. And “people who don't work” will NOT be left out—they will be much more likely to find jobs, if they are willing to work. You can make fun of how little relief individual tax payer’s will get, but when you multiply all of those “small,” individual tax breaks by the 150,000,000+ people who paid taxes, it ain’t no small potatoes! It makes our economy go and puts millions more to work!!

I do not think the tax cuts are enough. I still pay a higher percentage and higher amount. I still do not understand if I want to give money to my mom, I have to pay a 49% gift tax.

Tax cuts are a start. and yes more could be done.
I'm no economist but it seems to me Greenspan and now his clone bernanke have done everything they can to stop the one true industry that has carried a lot of the country, that is housing. continual rise of prime rate is directed right at the housing industry, and yes they have admitted that.
