Perhaps the most perfect political song ever to fit our election system and in these times of a decade plus wars.......Perhaps you should listen to it. Great rockin' song.

“How stupid does the administration think the American people are? This is Obama's "Watergate" and who knows where it will lead or what it will expose next! Sad to say, but the President isn't in control of the people he has appointed! And no "Smoke & Mirrors" by Washington is going to fool the people! Despite what they tell us, we are still in a recession worse than that of 1929... So, the IRS is under pressure to keep the lubricant of the political system in office going! By hook or crook... Problem is, the whole system is bloated, too many fingers in the pie... And they got sloppy and caught! Hum, what's next? I'd seriously look into why the Obama's whom made over (claimed income) of $780K only fit the 22% tax bracket, while my neighbor, a High School English teacher is in the 35% tax bracket making just over 30K a year? Explain that?”

ivotedabsentee on May 21, 2013 at 08:17:38

“"while my neighbor, a High School English teacher is in the 35% tax bracket making just over 30K a year? Explain that? "

Your neighbor is either lying to you or has a lot more income than just the income from being a teacher. Or perhaps the teacher needs a much better tax accountant.

A quick look at the IRS instructions for tax year 2012, a single person with an income of $31,000, standard deduction, has a Federal income tax liability of $2756, or roughly 8.9% of the total gross income.

The only way this teacher could reach the 35% marginal tax bracket is to have a taxable income of over $388,350 (for tax year 2012). Hard to do on $31,000 income.”

“Why the disparity in tax levels???
Why do you think obama whines and moans about corporate welfare an subsidies for the benifit of his non thinking low information constituents??????
He does not dare close the very 'LOOP HOLES" he, his wealthy friends, wealthy donors, corporations and Wall Street use to reduce or eliminate their tax liabilities.

Obama thinks everyone is as stupid as his non thinking, low information supporters are.

When the people and organizations who are not advocates of obama are subject to the full weight of the DOJ and the IRS you know something is wrong unless you're a non thinking, low information obamaite.”

Now how is it, my neighbor, the High School Teacher, who makes 200 times less than Obama, or about 32k a year, is in a 32% tax bracket? This is why the Government is going broke! And about us in the middle East, oil isn't the reason... It's power! And to tell you the truth, we are wasting tax money messing with it! Those people have been fighting for 2,000 years!

“Including state and local taxes MAYBE if you live in a high tax state like NY. The Fed bracket at that income level is 25% and with deductions should have effectively come in well under 20%, probably somewhere closer to 15%. Maybe your neighbor tries to do his own taxes, I can't believe that an accountant would do that to him.”

“It sounds like your "High School Teacher" needs to have someone else prepare his taxes. He's in a 32% tax bracket? Explain how that's even possible. He probably contributes to a 401K plan which would lower his taxable income even further. His tax is less than 15%.
