if your poor your prob gonna vote for a democrate(obama) if your rich your prob gonna vote for a republican(mitt romney)

why does it matter?

because they either tax everyone equally or taxed the rich people.

and im not meaning rich people like millionaires or billionairs im talking about anyone whos house is worth more than 500k

and im not saying poor like people on the street im mostly talking about people whos house are most likely a one story house worth less than 300k

all it is, is a tax that in rich neighborhoods the tax is higher and in poor neighboorhoods the tax is lower for example.

say you buy a double cheese burger for a dollor at mcdonalds. if your in a rich neighboorhood (doesn't matter if your poor or rich your in the neighboorhood could be walking near there or whatever) your taxed 3% (for an example. don't go nah you lier its 4.3725%, cause im just giving examples) and if your in a poor nighboorhood its 1.5% but if we were all taxed the same it would be something like 2.4% (somewhere in the middle.) and when your thinking rich people think non-rich non-poor people.

real rich people who are millionairs and billionairs are taxed differantly from the rest...




now for all that other stuff like oh!, theirs gonna be change. thats all stuff their gonna do with the tax money so all that money your paying tax on for that double cheese burger is going towards stuff the government decides what to do. for example: to supply schools with supplys or build roads or highways etc.

And isn't it people who make over 250K, having nothing to do with how much your house is worth?

hope this helps you in your decision.

i would love to list the differances though between rich and poor neighboorhoods prices and taxes.

rich neighboorhoods:
- charge more for their food(whatever you buy) because of taxes. so food(whatever you buy) is more money
- your charged more tax because you bought it in a rich neighboorhood.

poor neighboorhoods:
- food(whatever you buy) is cheaper cause less of a tax is put on food(whatever you buy).
- your charged less tax because you bought it in a poor neighboorhood.


also rich and poor isnt as black and white as it seems there poor than poor-er then poor-est so there is differant degrees of poor. and there are rich and rich-er and rich-est so there are differant degrees of rich too.

just makeing it simple. with taxes and yes they tax you base'd on how much you make.

but heres the thing it doesn't matter if your one of those people who care about the poor ohh poor people. unless you are poor then i'd understand. but really everyone has to pay tax and how taxes work is taxes go down when our national debt goes down. the reason why everything is so darn expensive now and days is because we owe alot of money to other countries.

see heres how to look at it if were all taxed based on there social status(how much money they make) than the overall tax would be less than if we taxed everone the same.

ergo less money for the governemt to fix things.

so in order for taxes to go down and prices to drop we need to tax everyone the same so the governemt has more money to fix the national debt. but look here. you want a republican who will fix the national debt and nothing else because then most of the time we spent on the national debt is wasted. but also if we spent most of our time fixing the national debt than stuff breaks like highways or roads or the economy. because the governement didn't help support.


but if you look at it like this:

if we fix the major problem first then work on the other minior problems.

then stuff actually gets done.

and most of the national debt would be fixed if you stupid oh save the poor people would stfu. then we could have the usa back to normal aka( not in recession or have a huge debt to other countries) then after the debt and recession is fixed you can go back to worrying about poor people.

Which is why it should be a point to make the rich pay at least the same percentage as everyone else.

Taxing the rich the same as the poor would actually bring in less money. The rich pay more than anyone else in their income taxes. The only bit I can say is that we can't spend our way out of this mess we're in. We need to be smart with our limited income.

People aren't hiring. I ask, what if the minimum wage was abolished? Would that entice employers to hire? Just asking.

which ever gets more money in the governments hands to fix the national debt go ahead.
