"I Kinda Like It When a Lotta People Die" Recorded Sep. 9th / 10th 2001

The problem, and the hubris, is assuming you are in any position to determine who is dumb

(george carlin, for example)

Is this phrased poorly? 50,000 is a lot of people.

You fail to recognize the main point so ill say it again

The dollar amount of taxes avoided by the rich is vastly lower than the dollar amount of taxes avoided by the poor.

You give them too much credit.

My statement contains their derogatory language which in turn isn't a constructive argument to apply those terms too. I do think they were bothered by my zinger.

It's more productive to discuss economic policies and their potential impacts using reasoned arguments supported by linked data.

The "nuh uh, you ...." lacks conjecture. [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

Top 1% of earners don’t pay taxes on one-fifth of income, study finds

Quote:
...the government is leaving about $175 billion a year on the table. That’s how much the report estimates the IRS could collect from the top 1% of earners....
This even excludes the 0.4% (or 50,000+) of the 1% that aren't even paying their taxes.

And Tax evasion by millionaires and billionaires tops $150 billion a year, says IRS chief

But billions lost are acceptable to you?
