Default Democrats Version Of Refunds

Recently read this one and thought it was worth passing along.
I feel better educated already....


If you don ' t understand the Democrats ' version of tax refunds,
maybe this will help explain it:

50,000 people go to a baseball game, but the game was rained out.
A refund was then due.
The team was about to mail refunds when a group of Congressional
Democrats stopped them and suggested that they send out the ticket
refunds based on the Democrat National Committee ' s interpretation of
fairness.
Originally the refunds were to be paid based on the price each
person had paid for the tickets. Unfortunately that meant most of the
refund
money would be going to the ticket holders that had purchased the most
expensive tickets. This, according to the DNC, is considered totally
unfair.
A decision was then made to pay out the refunds in this manner:
People in the $10 seats will get back $15. After all, they have
less money to spend on tickets to begin with. Call it an "Earned Income
Ticket Credit." Persons "earn" it by having few skills, poor work habits,
and low ambition, thus keeping them at entry-level wages.
People in the $25 seats will get back $25, because it "seems
fair."
People in the $50 seats will get back $1, because they already
make a lot of money and don ' t need a refund. After all, if they can
afford
a $50 ticket, they must not be paying enough taxes.
People in the $75 luxury box seats will each have to pay an
additional $25 because it ' s the "right thing to do."
People walking past the stadium that couldn't afford to buy a
ticket for the game each will get a $10 refund, even though they didn't
pay
anything for the tickets. They need the most help. Sometimes this is known
as Affirmative Action.

Now do you understand?

If not, contact Representative Nancy Pelosi, Senator Ted Kennedy
or Senator Hillary Clinton for assistance

I think that is pretty shitty myself. And I usually vote Democrat. I am all for a flat rate. A % of what you make is the only way to go imo.

I do taxes for my family. I remember one year when my girlfriend was a single mother working as a waitress and going to college. That year she got back more in refund than she actually paid in taxes. It's possible. And this was with a republican majority. The whole thing is screwed up no matter who is in charge.

Oh and Mr. Bill. You need my avatar.
