  • Don’t pay attention to what he says, pay attention to what he does. He is your typical tax & spend liberal.

  • What has Tim Bishop done to correct that other than with rhetoric?

  • Actually, one way of provide tax relief to the “middle class” would be to aggressively tax corporations. Of course, neither the Democrats or Republicans can resist corporate control, so until folks identify the real enemy, we won’t be able to solve the problem. It’s not just the US. England is in the same corporate stranglehold. Corporations getting big write-offs while normal folks (like us) get pushed out on the street.

  • Ulysses, we’ve taxed (GE’s fiscal year notwithstanding) and regulated corporations to death; that’s why they’ve chosen to move their operations to other parts of the planet. I have an idea; set-up an enterprise zone(s) in Brentwood allowing corporations to come in and pay zero state income and sales taxes for the first ten years of the program. The only tax they’ll be asked to pay is school-property taxes (which will go help reduce the enormous amount of state aid — $196 million — sent by New York). Watch how corporations flock to that region and watch how successful such a proposal would be.

  • OK, let’s figure this out. The right wing pushes for increased tax cuts for the super-rich ($70 billion) and less regulation for big business, and to pay for this shifting of the wealth to those who really do not need it, they propose cutting programs for the poor and middle class.

    If the American public wakes up and realizes what the fat-cat Republicans are doing (and not saying) we might get back to a more equitable system of taxation and helping those that really need help.

    It amazes me that these people who rail about NPR, Planned Parenthood, do not see the big picture — the Republicans are involved in a massive and largely invisible shifting of the tax burden onto the middle class and away from the truly wealthy.

    Please go beyond reading bumper stickers and buying into empty rightwing rhetoric.

  • We could always just go back to that Nixon 70% top tax rate but you don’t get to dip your bag in it.

  • Nixon Now!

    70% top tax rate and enough with the union busting

  • Welcome to the minority. If youre eating a poo sandwich its probably because you ordered it.

  • Tax Cuts for the rich/Budget cuts for the rest
