I donít know what the average (mean) tax bill is, but Iím pretty sure Iím paying above that. At least when I plug in the amounts on what percentile income I fall under and such. Based on Bozís posts, Iíd bet he pays well above the mean average tax bill amount.



Sure you could have paid above the average, but my point was unless you actually have been paying the most for years of your life, not just above average you have been letting a few take more of burden. But people only tend to blame the poor rather than consider they also don't pay as much.

Lots of people may have paid above average, but it's very likely a few have taken a much bigger share of that burden, and to just pick on the poor is, well unfair. Check the mirror and all that.

I've never heard of people cutting in line at the DMV simply because they're richer... what are you talking about? Does that ever happen?



Unless I'm misreading his posts, Rxwine is suggesting just that. That the more you pay in taxes, the more government prioritizes you.
Why stop at DMV. Why not 911. Maybe rich folks can dial 910 and jump that line. Maybe we have special police and fire departments.
Here is hint- the rich have plenty of advantages, they don't need more. It's nice waking up knowing I can afford both my medicines and my car. I don't need a reward for being well off. It's it own reward

No, I actually specified urgent care needs take priority just like they do now. You can't legally buy yourself or earn your way to the first kidney transplant. That doesn't change with anything else..

Do you read this thread much? I'm not the one you need to convince. I'm trying to throw a bone of compromise to the other side. Obviously all anyone sees is bones. : {

You are the one making the suggestions. I think they are ridiculous, are Anti-American and not very well thought out. You are literally suggesting a system where Nobel people( the rich) are privileged and the poor get treated as second class citizens.
I will ask again. A kid is born to a person who pays lots of taxes and thus gets lots of privilege. At what age does that stop? Does the kid keep his privileged life or lose it as a young adult with little income because he is in school.

I paid a million dollars in taxes last year.
My neighbor lost his leg in an ambush in Iraq.
His buddy just cycled out after winning a Bronze Star.

Who gets privileges in your Bizzaro World Order?

Fair enough.

No I'm suggesting a system where people who pay more get more. We're not giving anything away to the rich they didn't pay for. Just seems that way to you. And calling it nobility doesn't make it so. Nobility get things just for being somebody not for earning a living.

I didn't really understand what you are getting at. Still don't. Has he worked yet after he leaves home? His parents are the only ones getting tax benefits if they work. If he worked a summer job in high school he could earn tax benefits. If not he would have none. If his parents want to pay all his bills after he leaves home they can do that. Nothing is stopping them.

For some reason, you think I would do away with recognizing people who serve in the military as special cases, not your normal job. Never inferred that.

I sure hope the Left keeps letting
us know how they feel about kids
in cages and getting rid of ICE.
And I hope they keep kicking
Trump people out of everywhere.
This is having a very positive
effect on the Dem base, Chuck
and Nancy are getting very uneasy.

Keep up the good work..
