… Republicans do not Propose absurd Tax Cuts [#megan mcardle]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,July 17th,2016

.. what most people do not understand is that people do not realixze that the LameStream media and so media others operate from a false assumption : that the money is the government ‘ s to parse out to the people ..

.. it is the people ‘ s money , and taxes are levied in order to paY for government and its various tasks . Ergo , Spending needs to be paid for . Tax cuts do not need to be ” paid for .. ”

.. so , the more tax cuts , the better ..

… So , What is the OCs response to ” Tax Inversions ?? ‘ [#WBMG]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,April 9th,2016

.. to bellyache . So , what else is new ?? ..

.. they act from one perspective . They believe that the company’ s tax revenue is theirs [the government ‘ s] , not the company ‘ s . So , they complain when a company [for tax purposes] puts its headquarters in a foreign nation . It puts the revenue [and income] out of reach for the U.S. government ..

.. Also , the OCs want the tax rate to be as high as possible . They want as much tax revenue as is possible . So , the higher the tax rate ,the better ..

.. [h/t — Reuters.com/business]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. one thing that the OCs hate are ” tax havens . ” The O.C.s resent the business pressure that the tax havens put on countries to lower tax rates . In particular , the OCs believe in static tax analysis . They believe that if you cut tax rates , you lose tax revenue . Many times , that is not the case . Supply – side tax cuts are the proof , because they work every time that they are used ..

… Why the OCs [ObamaCraps] go After Tax Inversions ?? [#greed]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,April 7th,2016

.. ideology is one . The ObamaCrap Admin is heavily anti – business . They view business with heavy suspicion and a great deal of hatred . Most of the OCs have never managed a business , a payroll , or dealt with government from that ” side of the fence . ” They cannot stand business , except to squeeze the corporate ” teat ” for tax revenue [and plenty of it] ..

.. revenue is another . The OCs want as much tax revenue as they can get . They consider the revenue from a company to be theirs , and not the company ‘ s . Thus , they grant the company the right to keep that revenue [after tax ..]..

… Don’t Those Knuckleheads Ever Learn [#US Treasury][#tax inversion]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,April 6th,2016

.. it seems that Our country ‘ s Treasury Department is a glutton for punishment . Also , they want to be stuck in court with multiple court cases ..

.. So , what the fart is the big brawl all about with these ” tax inversions ?? ” …

.. simple , and for 2 reasons . One is our country ‘ s tax rate . Currently our’ s top tax rate for corporations is about 35.0% , which is the highest in the Western World . Having a rate that high is going to inspire many attempts to go to tax havens , and the use of tax dodges ..

.. [h/t — Reuteurs.com/business]..
.. [link] to the blog post news ..

.. the other is the way our country taxes corporations . Worldwide , companies are taxed generally one way . They only pay tax on the earnings on the income earned in that specific country . Our does it radically different . Our country taxes income on companies on a worldwide business basis . It just does not mean our nation alone , but in every other country on the planet ..

.. Treasury is trying to legislate by ” executive order ” or by regulation . Oops . Regulations may interpret and implement existing law . They may not act to write new law . That is Congress ‘ job ,folks ..

.. So , what happens ? The stuff get challenged in court , and by a company willing to take on the battle .most companies do not want the to spend the fuss or the tIme .But some do . Those are the ones that will benefit from the battle [and the expense]…

… the Fight for Freedom [#liberty]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,March 26th,2016

.. my understanding is that Islam , in particular , radical Islam , presents non – Muslims with three choices :

.. [-] convert to Islam , or …

.. [-] pay the jizya [a tax] , and
live in what is called dhimmitude …

.. [-] face death [die] …

.. I say that there is a fourth choice :

.. fight for freedom ;

.. fight for liberty , and

.. fight for freedom of religion , and

.. fight for freedom of speech , and

.. fight for our way of life , and that of our allied nations …

… The Daily Signal whiffed on This One [#ObamaCrapCare]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,January 7th,2015

.. well , they did ..

.. now , the employer mandate finally takes effect ..

.. it will make carrying health insurance for employees a colossal and royal pain in the neck …

.. [h/t — DailySignal.com]..
.. [link] to the news article …

.. then , there is the expansion of the individual mandate …. that is , presuming , a 6 to 3 majority does not rip the [bleep] out of the heart of it in June when King v Burwell is decided by the US Supreme Court ….

.. if that happens , then POTUS is going to have to come to Congresss in order to get a ObamaCrapCare repair bill passed . as a result , Congress will have a strong bargaining position in order to get substantial changes to the whole damn mess if His Lordship wants to get a bill passed …

… Good Luck , Vermont ! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,April 22nd,2014

.. I thought that the People ‘ s Republic of Taxachusetts was bad .

.. Vermont is , it seems , worse .

.. [h/t — m.NationalReview]..
.. [link] to the blog news ..

.. when the commune [state] of Vermont adopted its ObamaCrapCare exchange model , it found that it had a problem — tax money ..

.. it did not have enough of it . It still needs to get waivers from the Feds to wrap Medicare and Medicaid into its single – payer model . But , it still does not have enough tax $$ .. Oops ..

.. Vermont is , however , a small state , of about 670 , 000 people . It produces , normally , about $ 3 billion in state tax revenue every year . To pay for its model , it needs to raise another $2.5 billion — slight problem …

.. even the ” Green Mountain ” gang is not crazy . They may want to adopt a single – payer mondel for ObamaCrapCare — but where does the money come from ?? Great Question . They jack up the taxes , and people go bye – bye …

.. you made your bed , folks . You get to lie in it …

… there is an Added Problem with the Mandate ….

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,July 17th,2012

… it is something that i have never heard spoken about , or debated about , on radio , on TV , or in the blogosphere …

… the individual mandate is a ” bill of attainder . ”

… a what ? …

… for those who do not know our Constitution , it is a provision of our learned document (Article 1 , Section 9) . It is an act of a legislature , in this case , Congress , that is meant to punish a person , or , a group of person , without the judgement of a judicial proceeding …

{wikipedia} def of attainder –> meaning taintedness

… in simple , the Mandate , acting as a penalty , is , i believe , a Bill of Attainder , and should have been thrown out on the spot by the courts , definitely by the U. S. Supreme Court …
