  1. What they also failed to say is the tax that 50% don’t pay is the federal income tax. There are lots of other taxes that are paid. They also don’t tell you is that of the 50%, 74% of those people are the elderly and families with an income of less than 24 thousand a year. So I guess we should make the elderly pay an income tax from their retirement that is if they even have a retirement and the familes shoud sell some of their children so they can pay an income tax. That would only be fair, right?

  2. you say 50% of americans do not pay taxs however what you do not say is that on 47% of americans have a full time job so 53% of americans with do not work or only work part time that is why 50% of americans do not pay taxs. If more jobs were created (in private sector not goverment) and more people wanted to work instead of sitting at home collecting unemployment or food stamps our country would be in much better shape.

    We need less goverment, more private sector jobs and less spending by goverment. In short we need Mitt Romney

  3. The US government has got to quit being a provider to American Citizens period

  4. I always wonder who is getting all of this money. I have never even tried to qualify for unemployment but I was never employed in the first place so I guess that’s why. Still, I would rather work a part time job at McDonalds than get an unemployment check. I guess it’s very hard if you have a family and you’re laid off but I had a friend in college who got unemployment because the restaurant where she worked as a hostess closed!!
