Today is April 15, 2008.
Today is tax day.
All tax returns or extentions must be completed and mailed by midnight tonight.
I did mine last night. They took about two hours out of my life.
Last night I also received the following from a friend in an email. After reading it I went to the website listed and found it to be true so I wanted everyone who reads my blog to know the facts. All three of you.
After a focus group of democrats watched the democratic debate the other day in Vegas, …. For the most part, all of them bashed Bush over and over again on how he is out for his millionaire friends and the big oil companies and he has totally forgotten or disregarded the little guy. So an ex-IRS employee, decided to look back on the tax tables to see if there is any truth to what they said and the media keeps stating as fact, “Bush is only out for the rich in this country.” Based on using the actual tax tables here are some examples on what the taxes were/are on various amounts of income for both singles and married couples. So let’s see if the Bush tax cuts only helped the rich.
Taxes under the thumb of the Clintonistas 1999
Single making 30K – tax $8,400
Single making 50K – tax $14,000
Single making 75K – tax $23,250 S
Married making 60K – tax $16,800
Married making 75K – tax $21,000
Married making 125K – tax $38,750
Taxes under President Bush 2007
Single making 30K – tax $4,100
Single making 50K – tax $8,900
Single making 75K – tax $15,150
Married making 60K – tax $8,200
Married making 75K – tax $11,600
Married making 125K – tax $24,100
If you want to know just how effective the mainstream media is, it is amazing how many people that fall into the categories above think Bush is screwing them and Bill Clinton was the greatest President ever. If any democrat is elected, ALL of them say they will repeal the Bush tax cuts and a good portion of the people that fall into the categories above can’t wait for it to happen. This is like in the movie The Sting with Paul Newman, you scam somebody out of some money and they don’t even know what happened. Now this is effective marketing or maybe a better word is brain washing.
