re: The top 1% pay half of the income tax in this country - doubleb
The payroll tax is a cost to every business. Think about it this way, if cost is lowered or even eliminated an entrepreneur is free to use those resources in any way he sees fit. He could pocket it all, reinvest it, use it to hire better talent, use it to hire more people, etc. There is not...

re: The top 1% pay half of the income tax in this country - doubleb
I own my own business too and payroll taxes certainly goes into the equation as to how much you can afford to pay an employee. I'd also say that if tomorrow payroll taxes were eliminated the money or some of the money paid by the employer might go to the employee if the free market works and I th...

[quote]While we're in a pissing contest to "make points" it might be noted that the top marginal rates for much of the 1980s were much higher In the early 80s the top marginal rate on income was 70% [/quote] You could deduct a lot more in 80s. Many deductions were eliminated or cut out completel...

[quote]I reject the idea that lowering the highest marginal rates will result in any substantial trickle down effect where people start buying a bunch of random shite. At today's tax rates the people in those brackets already have plenty of expendable income. They do pretty much what they want and ...

re: The top 1% pay half of the income tax in this country - doubleb
The CEO thing is just a diversion from our real problems. It's private businesses right to reward their people as they see fit. Besides doesn't the CEO pay taxes at the top rate? That benefits the govt. too. Look at a bigtime CEO as a rock star in their trade, a movie star in the film business or...
