Why 44 house republicans want to eliminate income taxes?

The "replacement" is a tax on the poor & middle class for the income tax. Think about it: poor people don't save money, they spend it all. So does the bulk of the middle class. So when you replace the income tax (which the rich pay more than poor) with a national sales tax, you're giving more money to rich people and still taxing the poor at the same rate...potentially taxing the working poor FAR more as a result, because many of them don't pay income taxes if their earnings are low enough.

Is this the kind of philosophy the get rich party stands for? I'm disgusted.

I have some ideas for politics

heres the first one
there are many
if you want to hear more just ask and ill be happy to post some more

in regards to taxation:
I think that when people pay their taxes there should be some sort of checklist where you choose what you want YOUR money to go to
for example:
emergency services
education
weapons,even!

after all it is our money right...

now your probably asking:
what if everyone [or a large majority] chooses the same thing?
well all I have to say to that is
oh well it will just be another hole weve dug ourselves into...

I know it sounds risky but
I think that unfortunately hasty actions have no choice but to be more powerful than loving words
considering the circumstances

anyway...what do you think?

Who should bear the burden of the taxes?

Here's some things to consider before answering:
10% of the tax payers with the highest income pay for 2/3's of the income taxes. They also pay a higher rate of taxes, above paying for just a high tax itself. (Rich included.)
Social Insurance taxes are what make up food stamps, Social Security, and medicare. Everyone pays the same tax rates for this type of tax. Except for the more eligible, they pay a higher income tax on medicare; small, but still a tax.)

Cooperations yield less revenue than do individual taxes.
Cooperations - 9 cents for every federal revenue dollar.
People - 40 cents for every revenue dollar.

Only small shares come from excise taxes.

With all of this in mind, who should bare the burden of taxes which, and I quote, "Taxes are what we pay for civilization." - Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.

Would you pay federal income tax if it was not written law?

Bare in mind I'm not asking if taxes are bad or if they are necessary...just would you pay THAT particular tax be it optional. Replace "federal" with the applicable term.

A lot of people in the US claim that there is no such law. I have not done the research. It is hypothetical, I am just curious.

Stimilus package

I am 23 years old, I do not live with my parents. However my dad claimed me on his tax returns.
Even though I made more than he did in the year.
Because I am over 17, he does not receive the $300 for me, and since I was claimed I technically do not receive the $600 either.
This is what I thought.

However, an accountant at my dad's work claims that I should receive it.
Does anyone know which answer is right. Please let me know.

Whats up with income taxes

I want my paycheck all of it but before I even can get it I lose like 40% to taxes. Im not a wealthy person so it makes no sense to me for me to lose so much. I look at some of the taxes social security,medicare,disabilities federal and other junk.
Im all for a world where everyone is equil and no more rich snobs but seriously using taxs to accomplish this just seems to hurt everyone and eventuall make the poor poorer the middle class go to poor class but I remind you this the rich are still going to be rich even if they paid 100% tax most of my taxs go to stuff ill probably never use or can use. Im not a republican but I do appreciate tax cuts well thats my view on it.

Who else thinks ron paul should be the real republican candidate?

After last week's fiasco & the stupidity put for by Bush, Obama, and McCain, I really, really wish Ron Paul would have been nominated. His cool, collected & intelligent comments on the bail out stupidity were the only real leadership that made sense last week & earlier this week, which helped put to down the bill (thanks to the Republicans who kept their heads on straight).

Is it just me, or is the Ron Paul style of leadership what the country needs most given the state of fiscal crisis in the US?

Do you feel religious institutions should remain tax exempt?

From the Philly D Show, skip to the 7 minute mark:

The University of Tampa analysed that the U.S. apparently forgoes 71 billion dollars when exempting religious institutions from taxes from things like Property tax, donations, business enterprises, capital gains, and personage allowances.

While these institutions do mean good for people as a whole, non-profit organizations still have to pay taxes much like a business. So do you feel that institutions should have to pay taxes or that non-profit organizations become exempt from them as well?

Should financial aid from college be considered part of your income (in your opinion)?

I've noticed that while I live off a lot of the money that I get back from school every semester, I can't claim it as income for a loan or anything of the lending nature. While I understand that the money is temporary and a lot of it isn't taxed yet, it is a bit frustrating to have a means of support that no one can look at. In your opinion, should college students be able to use the money they get back from school as a source of income?
