Might as well count payroll taxes as part of the total tax burden for people with salary.

Honestly we should be more consistent about counting all the different ways we get taxed; but it makes no sense to count corporate taxes for Romney and then compare that to straight effective tax rates without other considerations for normal people.

Why the working poor don't pay income tax and why the minimum wage needs to be raised: http://current.com/groups/news-blog/...te-welfare.htm

Quote:
The problem starts with low wages. Wal-Mart pays its associates minimum wage the current federal minimum wage is $7.25 an hour. ... the store tries to keep as many employees at part-time status as possible, which for the chain means less than 34 hours a week. A full-time associate, then, could make a mere $11,832 a year, well under the current poverty line for a family of four, which is currently set at $23,050. Even at a standard 40-hour week, a salary of $13,920 would still fall well under the poverty line.

one 200-person Wal-Mart store comes at a cost of $420,750 per year to federal taxpayers.

Taking into account the number of Wal-Mart stores and the number of employees per store, taxpayers are paying more than $1.5 billion to support Wal-Mart's profits.

In 2011, despite the country's economic woes, Wal-Mart had an estimated revenue of $444.2 billion, an increase of 4.8 percent.
And because revenue doesn't tell the whole tale, Walmart made 15.7 Billion in profit in 2011.

Show me a poor person who's figured out how to get 1.5 Billion dollars a year in welfare.

So it's OK that taxpayers are subsidizing walmart's profits because the Waltons are smart?

And it's OK to pay people less than they need to feed themselves because they are stupid?

Am I understanding you correctly?

no, its not ok. for capitalism to work, you need people to want to improve their quality of life on their own. too many people have come complacent with suckin off the gov't tit


and yes, its ok to feed stupid people less. theyre stupid.

should stupid people get paid the same as smart people?
