The Top 40% Pay 106% of Taxes

Rush Limbaugh has announced another “random act of journalism” coming from CNBC.

The Congressional Budget office found from the 2010 census that the top 40 percent of wage earners paid 106 percent of income taxes.  The bottom 40 percent of wage earners contributed NEGATIVE 9 percent.  In other words they got federal money that they didn’t earn, which comes from those of us who fund this debacle of a government.

Find the data in table 3 on page 13 of the CBO Report.

Should the leftie media be apologizing to Mitt Romney for his comment about 47 percent of people who are on the take???  Should he sue them, redistribute their wealth, and feed some starving  lawyers?    Pharmer grants an  exceptional line to CNBC  because of the priceless headline : “The rich do not pay the most taxes, they pay ALL the taxes.”

The Alinsky-ites have been hard at work training  people to hate the rich for this, and so far they’ve been pretty effective.

Your tax dollars at work!

New York’s Union Death Panel

We’ve been hearing that New York city spent a much longer period locked in by snow than was necessary, due to an intentional work slowdown by protesting union workers.

A group of supervisors with the Sanitation Dept. is under media fire for partying in a van, drinking beer, next to stranded snow plows and vehicles.  Reporting that they had run out of fuel, the guys decided to kick back and enjoy each other’s good company.  That the supervisors felt they could do this reveals something about the chain of command in New York City.

Highlighted in the news were the deaths of an elderly person and a newborn baby who could not receive medical attention during the paralysis of transportation.

The New York  union death panels deserve credit for hundreds of uncounted deaths, and perhaps the inaction of city government was purposeful.

New York is a bankrupt city,  heavy with dependents needing medical and other tax payer assistance.   The fastest way to be rid of these people is to allow natural disasters to take their toll.  Exacerbating problems by inactivity and unresponsiveness of course increases the number of “natural” deaths.

Your friendly Pharmer knows exactly what happens in a hospital during a snow storm.  The rate of new admissions, particularly through the emergency room drops off precipitously.  This  extends for as long as transportation remains  blocked by the weather.

Do people stop having traumatic  injuries, chest pains, diabetic keto-acidosis, psychotic episodes, suicide attempts, births, strokes, and other emergent medical conditions just because it snows?   Of course not!   They simply go unattended and many of them die.

The news will not tell you about Bloomberg’s New York, Union, Death Panel,  which has likely stripped hundreds, or even thousands  of dependent human individuals from the welfare, medicaid, and social security rolls, by delaying cleanup.

That’s one way to deal with a financial crisis.  Expect more of it, especially if health care becomes both government controlled and unionized.

IMF Shadow Looms as Irish Sacrifice to Avoid Bailout – Bloomberg

IMF Shadow Looms as Irish Sacrifice to Avoid Bailout – Bloomberg.

The Irish see cleaning up their own mess as a necessary price of existing as an independent nation.

They’re just saying no to a bailout from the European union and the international monetary fund.

Pay cuts for public servants, and welfare recipients are the order of the day, as well as downward economic circumstances for those in the private sector.

Interviewees in the above article are seeing their sacrifices as an expression of patriotism.

Don’t you wish our U.S. lefties felt the same?
