    @Observation from watching Pres Obama’s statement on the Boston Marathon Bombing,,I would have liked to have seen a little more anger or emotion,,rather than a carefully crafted statement……

    Seems you preferred the stare at a children’s book and wait several minutes before reacting to a serious situation.

    You voted for that!!

    You aren’t diagreeing with my post,,just finding it necessary to point out incompetent behavior from another politican you loathe..You seem well suited for your mission to fill this message board with cut and paste propaganda…

    More Smoke and Mirrors from the Liar in Chief!

    Obama rolls out tax-day ‘receipt’ website to show where your taxes go – but it makes it nearly impossible to find out how much the wealthy pay
    Examples provided for $25k-$80k earners, but not for wealthy taxpayers
    White House won’t comment on failure to show massive tax burden of the ‘one percent’

    The Obama administration’s ‘Federal Taxpayer Receipt’ provides easy example calculations for middle-class earners, but nothing representing what the wealthy pay in taxes. Shown is the calculation for a married taxpayer who earns $80,000

    The administration rolled out a ‘tax receipt’ web page on Monday so people can see where their taxes are going in state spending, coinciding with the deadline day for Americans to file their annual returns.

    But while the White House made it easy to see how much — or how little — lower-income and middle-class earners pay to Uncle Sam, it made it difficult for ordinary taxpayers to learn how much the wealthy pay toward federal spending.

    The online receipt was set up to itemized what Americans’ income, Social Security and Medicare taxes actually pay for, broken down along a long list of categories. It also provides a handful of example calculations.

    The White House’s typical $80,000 earner who is married and filing jointly, for instance, pays $4,590 in federal income tax. Of that, more than $1,130 is devoted to national defense, another $1,030 for health care-related costs, and $792 to a category that includes food stamps, housing assistance and unemployment insurance.

    The calculator makes it easy to see numbers associated with its $80,000 example, along with four others ranging in income down to $25,000.

    But no examples are provided for upper-income earners, despite the President’s frequent argument for a ‘Buffett Rule’ tax that would ensure Americans who make $1 million or more would pay at least 30 percent of their income to the federal government.

    While taxpayers who make more than $80,000 per year can consult their own tax returns for the numbers required to operate the calculator, lower-income earners would need to know how to use several online tools in order to estimate those numbers for someone who earns dramatically more than they do.

    President Obama took credit in January for tax legislation that averted much of the damage from the so-called ‘fiscal cliff,’ but the national debt continues to climb and Republicans argue that the coming higher tax rates will stifle economic growth

    It took MailOnline 35 minutes to calculate the taxes paid by a hypothetical $240,000 salaried earner who is married and filing taxes jointly with a spouse, using the same conditions as in the White House’s example for an $80,000 earner.

    That $240,000 salaried employee, would contribute toward every federal program more than 10 times what the $80,000 employee chips in, despite earning just three times as much money.
