re: Nobel Prize winner Stiglitz on how to solve U.S. income inequality - doubleb
[quote]No, my bent is to have the government get more involved in the economy on behalf of the poor and middle class, not the wealthy. If we keep going this way, there will be a third world style uprising, and we deserve it.[/quote] If the govt. keeps getting more and more control, yes we might ...

re: Nobel Prize winner Stiglitz on how to solve U.S. income inequality - doubleb
[quote]Let me explain my point with an example. 1 out of 100 working Americans works for the Waltons. [/quote] More than that work for the federal govt. If Walmart is too big, what does that say about Uncle Sam (and I don't mean Walton? Throw in state and local employees, and you can see the ...

[quote]I'm not advocating a particular tax code, per se, just the recognition that the fundamental reason it is currently so convoluted owes more to greed than any other single factor.[/quote] I disagree, I blame the pols for carving out exemptions and making rules to cater to their constituents ...

re: Nobel Prize winner Stiglitz on how to solve U.S. income inequality - doubleb
[quote]This argument refuses to recognize proportionality. For example, person 1 pays taxes of 10% on income of $20K ($2000) while person 2 pays 40% on income of $20MM ($8MM). But here's the rub: person 1 is left with $18k while person 2 is left with $12MM. Person 2 pays a 'vastly' greater propor...

[quote]Stelly was $800 million per year by itself. Extrapolate that over 7 years and you get over a 1 billion dollar surplus.[/quote] Let me help you here. First the Stelly repeal first by the Blanco administration and then by the Jindal administration totaled approximately 300 million a year...

re: Jindal Opposes TOPS Revamp Bills - doubleb
[quote]None of this would even be an issue if he hadn't let the Stelly Tax get repealed in his first term. He'd be sitting on a $1 billion surplus and would never have had to make any of the higher-ed cuts he made, plus the Midcity General would still be open. [/quote] We have a 1.4 billion doll...
