    By the way, is there a list of ALLLLLLL the hollywood stars that support Obama who have paid EXTRA into their income taxes cuz they wanna pay their FAIR SHARE??????????
    Maybe our friends in Ca can post THAT list for us!

  • Mark

    @ratboy

    If you hate welfare and socialism, look at the states here which are the worst offenders when it comes to government funding

    http://thecentristword.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/red-state-socialism.jpg

    for all the people who want big government out of there lives they should run to their state government and tell them to stop

  • Mark

    I find it highly ironic that the states that benefit the most from federal government funding are the ones that generally bitch to most about it

    Romney never said, take the other guys money, Moore did. Until someone asked Moore how much of his wealth he was willing to give for the common good. Moore got out of there as fast as he could.

    Like MSNBC hosts Moore is one with the little guy. I think 75,000 after taxes anually is more than enough for Maddow, Shultz, O’Donnell, Tingles and Moore to live on. The rest of their dough should go to the common good. These people have a problem with others having money they need to live it like they talk it. They could take a little bit more of their 1%er incomes for emergencies and if they have a children. The government can make those decisions about their income for them.

  • Mark

    @Papa

    I think their is a case paying your fair share. Romney who made millions more then Ryan paid like 4-5% less in taxes. That makes absolutely no sense. To make matter worse Romney wants to pass a tax plan that would make people like him pay under 1%

  • Sicilian Papa

    @

    Mark

    Cut the federal government and don’t give them a choice. Just start slashing. You know I have very little money but I don’t take a dime from my neighbors so it won’t matter to me.

    I expressed my exceptions on this page Seniors, poor disabled, temporary out of work. Everybody else get out and push!!!!

    When you have to make stuff up, you probably don’t have any good ideas.

    Are you aware the chart you posted was federal spending, not state spending (which makes your comment about which states are the worst offenders at government spending incorrect as well). Also, it’s from 2005! If you’re not using remotely current numbers, it probably means those numbers don’t support your narrative…

  • Tony

    Rachel Maddow Show is still doing great.

  • amanda

    I was wondering how anyone can watch msnbc.Maddow pms republican, sharpton,ed,matthews,etc just bash the GOP 24/7.Either these people are ignorant are like most liberals only like to see one side of a issue.

  • Sicilian Papa

    I don’t care how much the rich guy pays. People should get jobs and earn their own money. Some money has to go to the Armed Services and the people I listed above. Also there are a lot of agencies that help us all and public works projects.

    Medicaid should be slashed to the bone along with almost all welfare. Mark you have generations of people on welfare. Please don’t give me the line about it is a small part of the budget. One bad guy on in the govenrment system shoots another one in the government system. One goes to the hospital and the other goes into the criminal justice system. Who pays, you guessed it we do. Times that by a million!

  • Tony

    ” I was wondering how anyone can watch msnbc.Maddow pms republican, sharpton,ed,matthews,etc just bash the GOP 24/7. ”

    Fox News is always bashing democrats, 24/7.

    Yes it federal taxes dollars given to states for a variety of programs. As you see on a whole Blue states get scrwed while red states on a whole are a bunch of leeches and “welfare queens”. As I said if anybody is in those leeching red states, run to your state government and tell them to stop being welfare queens

    Here is a more up to date list that shows not much has changed since the first one I posted

    Says otherwise

  • Sicilian Papa

    The whole MSNBC line up is roaring. Now they can go for my plan of taking just 75,000 a year for themselves after taxes. With those big numbers the advertisers will be knocking. They can contribute more to the common good and live simple middle class lives.

    For those of you who missed the big error on this site posting the RNC Convention, FOX News schedule, the actual dates are: in Tampa August 27-30, and not over Labor Day.

    Not: FOX News Channel’s coverage of the Democratic National Convention begins with FOX News Sunday live from Charlotte on September 2. America’s ElectionHeadquarters, anchored by Bret Baier and Megyn Kelly, will premiere Tuesday, September 4 at 10PM ET and will continue to air throughout the week during primetime. The program will cover convention news with a team of commentators including Brit Hume, Juam Williams, Bill Kristol, Charles Krauthammer, Kirsten Powers, Mara Liasson and Stephen Hayes. Karl Rove and Joe Trippi will also serve as analysts.

    The complete schedule is below:

    Starting Friday, August 31st

    ?6-7 PM/ET – Special Report with Bret Baier
    etc….

    They just missed it by a week…..

    Just saying….

  • Nick Czar

    WOW No surprise that Obama spells Ohio “OIHO”!

    This from a man who pronounces “CORP” as “CORPSE”
    and thinks he has campaigned in 57 states.

    OIHO along with New Hampster, Nevaduh and Virginya
    will all be going Republican.

    It’s obvious his college professors didn’t spend a lot of
    time with foreign students on spelling and vocabulary.

  • d.d.

    @Mark,

    Your article on Red vs. Blue states which are the worst offenders when it comes to government funding is mostly true , if not current data.

    Also , of interest, the Tax Foundation that provided all the original information appearing in the chart, honored Rep. Paul Ryan with Distinguished Service Award .

    We’re honored to have Rep. Ryan as a Distinguished Service Award recipient ,” said Tax Foundation President Scott Hodge. “His dedication to a fiscally-responsible government that lives within its means is a service not just to his constituents in Wisconsin, but to taxpayers across the country.”

    The Tax Foundation website is loaded with info . worth reading

    China and the UK urge Leaders to work to keep Greece stable and a part of the Eurozone.

    Their leaders must have elections in November too!?!

    Silly Righty!

    BTW as Fox regularly bungles in their silly reporting, The UK is NOT a part of the EU.
