can someone please explain to me in an unbiased way how obamas plan would work in a less simplified/metaphorical way. before you get pissed at me for not knowing this, im 15 and i live in canada and i just wanna know what his plan is
well done dude, im impressed.
Everyone should pay the same percentage whether you are shit poor or Bill Gates. Should a person like BIll Gates be "punished" for having more money than God? Fuck no. In case you haven't noticed we (middle class +) are already giving poor people checks every month. Those same poor people are getting checks from the government (which is "we the people") and they haven't paid taxes of any sort in many years. So in the end they are already benefitting even before Obama comes into office. I'm not talking about a couple hundred dollars either. It's involves four digit numbers...I can't remember any exact numbers at the moment.
Obama wants everyone to be equal. Forcing the rich to pay ungodly amounts of taxes and giving it to the poor people who mostly are unemployed and don't do shit. This won't give ANYONE incentive to get out there and make dough for themselves. Now it will give people incentive to be "poor" (even though they REALLY won't be. It will just be a name that means "I get checks from the government, and I drive a Roush") and not have to work, BUT they will get paid to sit on their couches. Remember...Bill Gates started in his BASEMENT. It's very possible to become wealthy, but you just need to work at it.
Rich people pay more taxes than middle and lower class people anyway. The bigger the amount that is written on the check to the IRS the wealthier you are. BTW Wealthy people pretty much always pay their taxes every year. They just have an accountant do it for them. My mom and dad have a business, so they use an accountant and I just hand my shit to the accountant along with our business stuff.
no he isnt, not at all, both of them need money and a wealthy man has more money that he knows what to do with
whoever wrote this needs to rethink their argument because right now it leads me to believe they have trisomey 21
No one ever said it was easy, but if you fail then you need to get back up again. The goverment (aka "we the people") should not have to pay for your mistakes.
No, not all poor people are lazy, but a large majority of them are.
