General Electric paid 0% in taxes, YES THAT IS CORRECT 0%. I mean WTF I just worked for free for 3 months for the government paying 30% while they pay 0%!!!!!!!! The top 1% is legit if they work their asses off to make it, BUT doing so makes NO ONE WANTS TO BEGIN SMALL BUSINESS ANYMORE BECAUSE THOSE ARE THE "MIDDLE" class Americans and since they are wideing the gap, we are fucked. Will probably edit this once since i am prety drunk ATM.

You're the one who accused me of not knowing the difference between philanthropy and taxes.

Your response to me pointing out estate one of the richest 1% paying no taxes (and that estate is not at all post-tax money!!!) with a suggestion of charitable donations in some attempt of misguided partisanship.

Here is situation - Steve Jobs paid no fucking capital gain taxes for at least a decade, he hasn't sold a single share since 97 and simply borrowed against his shares postponing taking tax. Then he croaks and estate now magically forgiven all past capital gains!!! What the fuck?! Our tax code when it comes to top marginal tax is broken, and don't try to make this partisan issues.

Someone earlier asked how much should 1% pay in taxes. Well, clearly more than estate of Steve Jobs did.

"More" seems to be the standard lefty answer when that question is asked. Which is what usually prompts the rest of us to ask the original question in the first place.

I know when I want to make a point about taxes I always look for data compiled by a UC Berkley Professor who works for the Obama administration with a history of advocating socialistic economic theories like Keynesian economics.

You didn't come up with the number, you posted an article.

So if they are still paying a lower rate, and since Obama is the President. How does it make you feel that Obama still has it that way even after his first year and a half with a super majority in congress?

I'm sure your will say something absurd like it's still Bush's fault. Or the republicans are at fault even though Obama had a super majority. If he couldn't get it done with a super majority, that leads me to believe some democrats didn't ride the Obama wagon! So again... how does it feel to have your President still toting this tax for the wealthy?
