    Well it's not like Obama could get hard numbers or anything. It's not like the IRS is under the executive branch...

    Reminds me of that one Obama economic advisor that determined Americans were over their fears of a pending deeper recession/depression based on the fact that those terms slipped in rank on Google Trends. Dumb, dumb, dumb.

    The President is spreading blatant class warfare propaganda? Quick, let's find someone who misspelled a word. Stupid fucking drone you are.

    Not just blatant class warfare propaganda, but he was saying the American system as the Founders envisioned has never worked. While laying out what he envisions for America's future he all but admitted that he favors some form of Marxism. Remember way back in 2009 when anyone who dared to call suggest as such was called every name in the book? One of these days he and his cronies are going to be emboldened enough to outright admit it.

    The irony of being called a drone by the likes of Norm Stansfield is very entertaining to me. Almost as funny as you using a term like "class warfare" when discussing propaganda.

    And here's one of the articles sourced:

    I think I want to setup a "variable prepaid forward contract" with my employer. I'll give them my services now but I don't want to be counted as an employee until I'm retired and in a lower tax bracket. Genius!

    This tax thing is so complicated. If only there were a presidential candidate who would propose some extreme simplification of the tax code...:icon_cool

    Who are you talking to? And why do you think using the term class warfare is propaganda?

    I think the more appropriate term would be "what."

    It's a tad bit hyperbolic when used like you did. Just like it was an exaggeration for Obama to somehow make the claim that it's running rampant. Only about 1500 people paid zero income taxes in 2009, so I doubt the number is that much higher for people only paying 1%. Love how Reason.com wasn't able to come up with that number. Took less than 5 minutes of Googling.

    That wasn't exactly the point of the article. The point was that the administration admitted that they didn't even attempt to verify that the huge hyperbolic point that they made was actually true. Maybe the line about billionaires is true, but if it's only because they made a good guess with no proof, then it's not really a "win".
