  • Approaching The Fiscal Cliff As A Nash Equilibrium [View article]
    Tom
    I have never voted for a Republican for any office at the national level.
    ======================...
    It shows
    If you ever think beyond R vs. D, you would noticed
    that Obama 99% with Bush on rate of tax and only 1% with Clinton.

  • If the U.S. goes over the fiscal cliff, the biggest impact in sheer dollars would land on relatively affluent households, but in terms of percentage of tax increases, low- and moderate-income taxpayers would face the biggest burden - an often overlooked part of the budget debate that’s beginning to draw attention as the year-end deadline nears. [View news story]
    Morrison, how does the price of buying a house stack up compared to last decade? Where's house inflation? And how much is your grocery bill compared with your mortgage?
    ======================...
    buying a house
    In my ZIIP it is almost back to hi
    renting
    all time hi and growing
    grosery bill compare to mortgage
    this is wrong comparison
    grosery bill should be compared to whatever left after paying mortgage / rent / insurance / tax / tax / tax / fee

    When you compare your receipt, you don't take into account that maybe chicken has decreased 3% in that time frame but you did not notice because you continue to buy beef. Had you taken the time to be more flexible, you may not have seen such an increase.
    ======================...
    Last time I checked sh.. is stable.
    Everything else is way up.

    Disclosure
    I am not shopping in Kroger

    If we had stopped all salaries on 1 Oct of Congress Critters and their staffs, plus the President and his staffs, bet we would have had a deal.
    ======================...
    It was before and failed
    To cut a garbage deal is neither brainer nor solution.

    Most likely. If the Republican house doesn't cut the State Department request for more Embassy security funding, as they did before. But now that we all know that, those funds are being made available
    ======================...

    1 Cut funding for defense, we need it not
    2 We were defenseless, because of funds too low

    Efficiency and honesty two songs they never learned

    Going over the cliff plays into Obama's hands -- he has nothing to lose here and everything to gain.
    ======================...
    No doubt
    Alas, his political gain is population pain

  • Historical Tax Rates Provide Clarity [View article]
    muoio
    We all need to wake up and return to responsible taxes!
    ======================...
    Responsible tax ? What does it mean?

    Does bigger tax size make it more responsible ?

    If big size tax over spent by the bigger spender, was this tax not responsible enough?

    If definition of responsible tax size is function of spender, would it be unthinkable to suggest that entire tax size discussion is waste of time, but talking spender's size is not

    Over the cliff is the best hope for the country. Maybe the only hope. Might hurt a little in the short run but in the long run it might make Obama a star.
    ======================...
    I suspect that cliff is not what BO wants. If we go in, incomes of many of his supporters will be hurt.
    I mean Bush tax breaks recepients not paying their fair share

    massive increase in taxes would be to increase the tax rate on those making more than 250K to 90 percent. Apparently that is what they paid back in 1950.
    ======================...
    apparently not

    in 1950
    taxable income $400,000 - and over 84.357%
    To translate in current money it at least
    $4M - and over rate was 84.357%

    Interesting that for
    $24,000 - $28,000 rate was 39.13%
    $0 - $4,000 reate was 17.40%
    ======================...
    Total Surplus or Deficit as Percentage of GDP

    1950 = -1.1%
    2011 = -8.7%

    IMPO
    Tax increase to 50s level is not enough
    If spending is cut to 50s level, we can compare with 50s

    Otherwise it's tax increase for working/tax paying masses in return for more deficit
    ======================...
    I am for cliff. Better get sober now than coma in few years later

    The trust we as citizens had in fairness from them is gone. They are like Judas selling us out for 20 pieces of silver.
    ======================...
    It is us who are selling our votes to polititians in exchange for deceptive promises

    GM want to make money. Invest in the US will likely make less money than China.
    ======================...
    next time GM goes bankrupt, bailout should directly be paid to China
    Less overhead
