Isn't that the liberal mantra that Obama spouted for 8 years...?  Rich people have more money than others so, therefore, he assumed they are not paying their fair share of taxes. 

 

Did Trump not confirm this was true?

I don't know about that, but if so, ok.  Just as long as Obama's wealth is redistributed like he wanted other's to be, I'll be ok with it.

 

But I'm suspicious that the Obamas are going to keep the vast majority of that $65M...

I would speculate that they lose at least $20 million to taxes.

 

In that they file their taxes every year like most other Americans do.

Rich Democrats and Socialists talk about redistributing other people's money m8, yet somehow the same metric never applies to them themselves.

 

Strange that innit, lol.

 

I guess such talk makes good TV though. Plus it gives the hoi poloi, the unwashed masses, something to rage against. :lol:

Really?

 

Combine the income from the book deal plus royalties, the monies from his speaking tours, upwards of $300,000 per talk, the income from having his name atop the letterheads of some of America's most prestige's firms, the hundreds of thousands of dollars per hour he will command for consultancy fees at home and abroad ........ well, you get the picture, the list goes on.

 

Obama is set to become a extremely wealthy man so i would speculate that Obama will retain the services of some of the countries top law and accountancy firms to hide as much of his riches as possible in all of the little loopholes and get out clauses that he, and every other President, failed to remove whilst in office.

 

Disclaimer: Of course, this is mere speculation on my part. Maybe Obama will happily hand over his money, no questions axed... :rolleyes:

Probably a good assumption.  And I'm sure that they file their taxes...just like other rich people do.  But even if they lost $20M to taxes, that would leave $45M in their pockets, from that transaction alone.  That still seems like far too much wealth for them to keep - as they would still have far more wealth than other people in this country.  Again, the liberal definition that they are not paying their fair share of taxes.  You know, using Obama's own words.  They'll have to pony up far more than $20M in order to make this 'fair'.

Taxing the rich out of existence is never a good idea. I remember the good old/bad old days back in England when under successive Labour governments the tax bill for the 'rich' stood at 83% and could reach as high as 98%.

 

Needless to say the wealthy said **** that and took themselves and their money to Countries with friendlier tax regimes, leaving Great Britain, a Country without a pot to p*** in.

It's not that the rightie hates the rich leftie...it's more that the rightie hates the hypocrisy of the rich leftie...which the leftie doesn't seem to mind being a part of the evil rich that the lefties supposedly despise.

Take the Clintons as an example (I'll give Obama a pass since we just talked about him). The Clintons are worth, collectively, hundreds of millions of dollars. And yet, she had the audacity to walk out there and talk about 'the rich not paying their fair share of taxes.' Based solely on these people being rich. And yet she never applied this criteria to her or her husband. Hell, when remotely questioned about her speaking fees, she seemed to imply that she was wo0rth it...because that's what the going rate would pay. Fair enough...but why is this not good enough justification for the compensation of others? ...Because, just as TwennyFo has already stated, it got the liberal base frothing at the mouth that somebody earned more than somebody else in this country.

Hey, fun activity: let's keep track of the Obama's and Clinton's finances to see what they voluntarily give back to the fed gov...based upon their own polices they advocated while in power. My guess is...ZERO.

Well, to be fair, I think he said that in reference to him not LAWFULLY paying any taxes. A very important distinction, perhaps omitted by media for political purposes. But which, I, as a taxpaying individual, don't necessarily like...but during Obama's reign, I never petitioned my Representatives/Senators to fix. So, now, I have no one to blame but myself. If Obama, or any other politician didn't like this, then they could have also asked for this to be changed during Obama's tenure. I don't remember any request other than a general 'tax reform' request. Which could mean anything.

I think you've missed the point.  I never said it was bad to tax rich people.  I simply pointed out what I believe to be the hypocrisy of the Obamas/Clintons in that they claim that rich people aren't taxed enough - not paying their 'fair share' simply because they continue to be wealthy - when both of them seem to keep the vast majority of their wealth.   They don't seem to think that they aren't taxed enough - how convenient.  And they never define what the 'fair share' is...so that no matter what happens or how much the rich are taxed, they can always claim that they aren't paying their fair share.

 

I don't begrudge anything that the Obamas/Clintons have earned.  If there are people out there willing to pay that kind of money to listen to them, so be it.  But other people shouldn't be vilified by [now] ex-Presidents simple to fire up the liberal base.  

 

All that I ask is that the Obamas/Clintons live under the same rules as they propose for everybody else.  That really shouldn't be too hard for them to do.

So Donald Trump paying less tax than the kid who works at McDonalds is nothing to complain about? The fact that an always greater portion of the wealth in the country continues to flow into the hands of people who shield it from taxation does not ring any alarms with you as far as long term sustainability?

 

Not sure how they did it but that crafty old 1% continue to **** everyone and don't even need to make an excuse for it. Poor people do it for them.

Nope, didn't say that, either. In a previous post above I stated that I'm not good with Trump paying little to no tax. But I can't fault the guy for using legal tax loopholes. I take legal deductions. Trump, as well as any other tax paying American, is entitled to them as well.

But my posts weren't really about Trump or his taxes. They were about Dem leaders who like to decry the rich and taxing them to fairness all the while being rich.

I thought Trump was the guy to elect because he knows the loopholes so well as a scoundrel that he is the only one who can close them. How's he doing with that?

Also, the capital gains tax rate is significantly lower than the rate at which working folks are taxed. That needs to be fixed.

Furthermore, billionaires are paying a lower income tax rate than their assistants who earn 50G/year.

Lastly, Joby is a ignoramus. Lol.

Dishonest politicians from successive governments foisted this chit on a gullible public with nothing other than their own interests at heart.

Just how much do the rich really pay?

 

 

http://www.cnsnews.c...ent-all-federal.

 

"Since the rich pay a higher share of federal income taxes than of total federal taxes, they argued we were misleading by making it look like the rich pay a higher share of taxes than they do.

We responded to them here and here.

In those responses, we showed we weren’t being misleading because we make plain the chart includes only federal income tax. Furthermore, examining the federal income tax makes sense because President Obama has long wanted to raise it on the rich.

We also agreed that it made sense to look at the total federal tax burden, in addition to federal income taxes, to offer additional context to the debate.

In that spirit, here is a new chart that shows the burden of all federal taxes, including individual income, corporate income, payroll, excise and other miscellaneous taxes:

(Image Courtesy of The Heritage Foundation -- DailySignal.com)
It still shows the same story: Top earners pay a disproportionately large share of the federal tax burden.

The top 10 percent pays 53.3 percent of all federal taxes. When looking at just federal income taxes, they pay 68 percent of the burden.

The top 1 percent pays 24 percent of all federal taxes compared to 35 percent of all federal income taxes.

The data for total federal taxes come from the Congressional Budget Office. The data for federal income taxes come from the IRS. Heritage has not altered the data from either in any way, except to combine income categories in the Congressional Budget Office data.

The respective sources use different breakpoints for income categories. They also use different definitions of income. The Congressional Budget Office’s is broader because it is market income, which includes more government transfer payments than the IRS’s use of Adjusted Gross Income. Nevertheless, comparing them is still a useful way to understand who pays how much federal tax".

It stands to reason that the wealthy are likely to own very many appreciable assets, expensive high end assets, so they contribute more in this area as well, given that someone on minimum would be unlikely to own any valuable assets unless we're counting iphones and 4k TV's. lol.  

 

http://www.taxpolicy...tal-gains-taxed.

 

INDIVIDUAL TAXES

Q.How are capital gains taxed?

A.Capital gains are profits from the sale of a capital asset, such as shares of stock, a business, a parcel of land, or a work of art. Capital gains are generally included in taxable income, but in most cases are taxed at a lower rate.

A capital gain is realized when a capital asset is sold or exchanged at a price higher than its basis. Basis is an asset’s purchase price, plus commissions and the cost of improvements, minus depreciation. Similarly, a capital loss occurs when an asset is sold for less than its basis. Gains and losses (like other forms of capital income and expense) are all measured in nominal terms—that is, not adjusted for inflation.

Capital gains and losses are classified as long term if the asset was held for more than one year, and short term if held for a year or less. Taxpayers in the 10 and 15 percent tax brackets pay no tax on long-term gains on most assets; taxpayers in the 25-, 28-, 33-, or 35- percent income tax brackets face a 15 percent rate on long-term capital gains. For those in the top 39.6 percent bracket for ordinary income, the rate is 20 percent. Short-term capital gains are taxed at the same rate as ordinary income. There also is a 3.8 percent tax on net investment income for single taxpayers with modified adjusted gross income above $200,000 ($250,000 for married couples filing jointly). Note, too, that capital gains in some cases face an effective tax rates above the 23.8 percent statutory rate because of phaseouts in the tax code.

Isn't that the liberal mantra that Obama spouted for 8 years...?  Rich people have more money than others so, therefore, he assumed they are not paying their fair share of taxes.  And he wanted to tax them to help make it 'fair'.  Hillary also supported this position.

 

So, Obama should now expect that a good portion of his wealth will be redistributed to others who do not have as much.

 

I would rather he keep what he earned but this is what he wanted.

You seem to be implying that Obama didn't pay his taxes on a book deal that just happened.

 

He will pay taxes on it. That's more than you can say about Drumpf who has managed to avoid paying any income taxes for a decade because he was such a chit businessman that he lost billions of dollars in a single year.

And yet, she had the audacity to walk out there and talk about 'the rich not paying their fair share of taxes.' Based solely on these people being rich. And yet she never applied this criteria to her or her husband. Hell, when remotely questioned about her speaking fees, she seemed to imply that she was wo0rth it...because that's what the going rate would pay. Fair enough...but why is this not good enough justification for the compensation of others? ...Because, just as TwennyFo has already stated, it got the liberal base frothing at the mouth that somebody earned more than somebody else in this country.

Hey, fun activity: let's keep track of the Obama's and Clinton's finances to see what they voluntarily give back to the fed gov...based upon their own polices they advocated while in power. My guess is...ZERO.

She did pay taxes on her money. We know she did because she actually released her taxes like every other candidate in modern history.

 

Trump hasn't released his taxes, but when someone uncovered them, we found out that he weaseled his way out of paying income taxes for years.

 

The real hypocrite is the billionaire complaining about how high taxes are when he's not even paying them.

The forum just can't handle level-headed fact-based analysis using the queen's English.  I should have just said that Vanatta double-diggled that foglet Ferguson in blueberry flavoured buttermilk and I'm sure Banham would have agreed.

I wish I could lose billions of dollars every year and still be worth billions.

Seriously. Where is my tax free decade for being retarded. These idiots try to shame a poor person for paying eight dollars more on their phone bill a month to have an iphone when they can't afford health insurance. 

 

Those same shmucks allow a billionaire to write off billions of dollars in losses. How about Drumpf stops being retarded instead of getting a tax write-off due to his retardation?

You seem to be implying that Obama didn't pay his taxes on a book deal that just happened.

 

He will pay taxes on it. That's more than you can say about Drumpf who has managed to avoid paying any income taxes for a decade because he was such a chit businessman that he lost billions of dollars in a single year.

 

She did pay taxes on her money. We know she did because she actually released her taxes like every other candidate in modern history.

No...once again the point has been missed.  I never said the Clinton's didn't pay taxes.  Didn't even imply it.  The point, again, is that she and Obama like to vilify rich people for being rich.  And they want to tax them above and beyond simply for fairness sake.  To redistribute that wealth in order to make life 'fair'.  IRS statistics show that rich people pay taxes.  But how much of the magnificent wealth of either Clinton or Obama will be freely given back to the fed gov in order to be 'fair'.  Remember what they both said...?

Without any proof, without knowing anything about rich people, they've spouted for years that 'rich people aren't paying their fair share of taxes', simply on the idea that if someone is rich, then they're not paying their fair share.

 

Well, both families are now extremely rich.  So, by their own words, they're not paying their fair share.  They both advocated that the fed gov go take it from these families.  So, they should have it taken from them.  To be fair.  But we'll wait and see if that happens.

Rich people who pay taxes think people who make us much money as them should pay more taxes, thereby increasing their own taxes.

 

What hypocrites!

 

They're not hypocrites, you just disagree with them. That's expected considering your retarded and blighted worldview.

Actually, the people that Obama (and the Republicans) raised income taxes on started with those who made $400K/year.  Certainly not 'millionaires' as Obama described it and certainly a far cry from a $65M advance.

 

Clinton has also dodged questions about her accountants and how her wealth may be shielded from taxes which would lead anyone with a brain to deduce that she, too, tries to shield her wealth.  At the same time she was decrying that rich people don't pay their fair share.

 

Yeah...hypocrite.

There should be a thumbs up option for posts like this. It's so simple, but then the truth generally is.

Article 50: Theresa May to trigger Brexit process next week

_95237781_mediaitem95237780.jpg

 

Prime Minister Theresa May is to officially notify the European Union next Wednesday that the UK is leaving.

 

Downing Street said she would write a letter to the European Council, adding that it expected negotiations on the terms of exit and future relations to then begin as quickly as possible.

 

The move comes nine months after a referendum in which the UK voted to leave by a margin of 51.9% to 48.1%.

 

An EU spokesman said it was "ready and waiting" for the letter.

 

Under the Article 50 process, talks on the terms of exit and future relations are not allowed until the UK formally tells the EU it is leaving.

 

If all goes according to the two year negotiations set out in the official Article 50 timetable, Brexit should happen in March 2019.

Nothing screams "waffler" like Brexit.
