So as their very first order of business the out of touch House Republicans pass their repeal of IRS funding, voting to remove $80 billion dollars that's aimed at addressing rich tax cheats. (Of course the GOP didn't frame it that way.)

So is this the type of hypocrisy we are going to see from House Republican majority over the next 2 years before they're kicked out of power (again)?

Do you think removing the IRS agent funding was really the first top of prioriority thing the American people wanted? OR was this done to satisy their GOP owners? Why not as suggested in the video create a bipartisan bill to provide narrow scope for who exactly is targeted with the new funding?



so who exactly is the real leeches on society? those on welfare or those millionaires not paying ANYTHING for the past decade to the tune of $46 BILLION dollars?

Do you agree that the IRS should focus on those making over $2 million a year?

Well?

What has your biased sources told you to think about all of this?

As always, if you have a specific departure on any of the information supplied in this video, when replying give me a timestamp from the video.

Is funny how you want to say it was to go after "rich" tax cheats. When it wouldn't do that at all. Lots of the "agents" were going to be IT guys and what not. IT was more aimed at Crypto.

But we all know that it never ends up going at the "rich". Just like all the tax bills in the past.

BTW... I am all for abolishing FEDERAL INCOME TAX.

What many dont understand is all the taxes US citizens pay. I am not talking about taking away your SS tax and Medicare Tax from your wages. But your income tax stuff. Because lets look at it. You get taxed on that income. Then when you spend that income you get taxed again (Sales, gas taxes, etc). Then if you happen to gift that income to someone... THEY GET TAXED. Then if you invest it or put it in a bank.... you get taxed on any interest gained. Your income gets taxed over and over and over again. Then throw in state taxes for people and local taxes and what not.


I am all for a flat tax rate of some sort. But again... US Citizens are getting taxed to death. The average citzen isn't getting a return on those taxes or proper represntation. I am pointing a finger at ALL THE PEOPLE IN CONGRESS... this isn't a dem vs rep thing.

Anyways I will get off my soap box but this isn't a "bad" thing like you want it to be. You are regurgitating talking points again.

Once again, you're not even replying to my post. Provide a timestamp on which part in it is false. I'm not sure where you get the narrative you are using as cover. The vast majority of the funding was to address those $46 billion dollars of unrecovered taxes that weren't filed. You can dance around the edges, and deny reality by trying to claim it was for IT etc, but at the end of the day, there is no justification for removing the funding, when the enforcement action of the IRS would recover any $$$ spent by taking it from the wealthiest 5% of Americans who aren't even filing taxes right now.

You really are on thin ice trying to justify this one Chuck.

It was for those smart enough to understand what's happening.

Why should anyone be targeted? Sounds like jealousy to me.

so who exactly is the real leeches on society? those on welfare or those millionaires not paying ANYTHING for the past decade to the tune of $46 BILLION dollars?
Those on welfare who are capable but lazy

Do you agree that the IRS should focus on those making over $2 million a year?
Again why target any one group? Perhaps a sales tax would be more fair. People on wages get ripped off compared to those who have writeoffs. I have seen data that if you took all the money every billionaire in America had it would make little difference. My suggestion to all those who want to punish the rich (successful) is to get out and work rather than hope the gov is going to rob the rich and give some to you. Biden will not give it to you, he will give it to the Ukrain. Then Selinsky will give 25% to Hunter Biden, and Hunter will give 10% to the big (senile) guy.

I have to say I am greatful for the rich. Yup, and I have practically no savings and live off retirement. The rich provide jobs not the poor. That doesn't mean I don't also care about the poor.

Sometimes I feel guilty we have it so good in America because of the rich. Think how much we would have to pay if the rich only had to pay their share. A rich persons car doesn't wear a road out faster than a poor person's car. It doesnt cost more to educate a rich man's child than a poor person.

When it comes to being fair be careful what you ask for you may get it. If we were fair we would look at our budget, divide it by our population, and that's what we would pay. I wouldnt complain at all about my taxes if some of it didn't go to murder children in the womb. I wouldn't complain so much if my taxes didn't pay the truly lazy. I wouldn't complain so much if my taxes didn't go to grooming the youth to be perverts. etc etc etc.

Greed drives people to steal more from the rich through taxes only because they are cowards to do it at gunpoint. Through taxes they get politicians to do it for them.

I suppose I should also say I don't have any rich relatives, or benefit from any rich person. I do benefit from many rich people who pay ten, one hundred, perhaps thousands of times more taxes than I do. Many people I have to say are very stupid. They want to throw a rich person in jail if they don't pay income tax a year or two. Most rich people don't take a salary. They live off investments. Some years they actually loose money, yet the parasites want more. Liberals may ask why I defend them. Because I have a conscience, and intelligent enough to know what's truely fair.

I guess Mach doesn't understand the system. i know they are saying Millionares dont pay anything in taxes and what not. They point to Trump, Bezos, etc. Well they used the system to their advantage. Dont blame the people who use the system... right? I mean liberals say conservatives are "racist" if they bring up welfare mothers who keep having kids so they dont have to work.... etc.

But also these liberals are not understanding that people were taxing HUGE losses and just pushing using those losses that year as a tax deduction down the road. So when AMAZON was in its infant stage and Bezo was losing money while building his empire. he didn't take those losses he pushed them down the road so he could take those deductions when it was making BILLIONS. That is what has happened over and over. It gives these innovators an incentive to keep pushing and pushing for advancement. Gates did it, Jobs did it, etc. But you dont hear people *****ing about those two do you.

Anyways... the "rich" not paying there fair share is sickening of hearing people say this without them actually knowing what happened or why it was.

FIX THE SYSTEM that allows them to do this. That is the issue.

So either you both are unwilling or unable to actually discuss the details of the issue. Instead you both go off onto side tangents that don't discuss anything that pertains to the actual bill, the details around why the IRS agents were funded this time, and why they weren't funded during the past administration.

Making a specious attempt to say that FIXING THE SYSTEM is a better solution, whilst true, and something that noone denies would also work HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS ISSUE AT HAND.

This is the typical GOP strategy to ignore the thing they can't (or won't) discuss, and instead pivot to a tangential dotted line sorta related point they feel answer a question, when instead it deflects.

again.

Again... YOU ARE NOT LISTENING....

It talks about "tax dodgers" and "millionaires" not paying. Well FIX THE SYSTEM. The system allows them to dodge and defer money. It allows them not to PAY.

I talked about how most of those agents were IT people and what not.

NOW you want to talk about how the "republicans" could have "earmarked" or made into the bill to specifically go after tax dodgers. WHY DIDNT THE DEMS SAY THAT RIGHT AWAY EITHER????? They didn't.... you know why... so that they could go after lower income, middle income, etc. The DEMS did the exact same thing you are trying to say the Republicans did. BLINDERS ARE ON FOR YOU.

Again this speaker in the video keeps saying... WELL If they want to make it for what the Dem's intended it to be used for they could have just done this. WELL WHY DIDNT THE DEMS DO IT???

Mach isn't listening because he doesn't want to hear the truth. He doesn't want to hear the truth because he needs an excuse to be a liberal parasite. He wants to bleed the rich in hopes he will benefit. That's why socialism will never work. So many lazy people that will bleed the successful dry.
Unfortunately for liberals it's still illegal to rob people at gun point. So they replace the gun with a politician and point out who they should rob, and also who they should give it to. They are not driven by compassion as they would have you believe, but by greed and perversion. Perversion of democracy, perversion of truth, perversion of all they put their twisted minds to. Remember how we in the past said " if you can read this thank a teacher"? Not anymore. Don't trust a teacher with your child.

I'm not sure what is more funny. Watching all of your attempts at justifying the pathetic behavior of the GOP and their stooges, or that you all are gullible and have fallen victim to the narrative the crazy extreme far right is now espousing as normal.

You all instead demand I participate in your whataboutisms, gas lighting, distractions from the real issue and obfuscation of truth. It's become the only way anyone on the right knows how to debate. They literally are overwhelmed by the scope, complexity and nuance of different political issues.

You can say I disappear which is laughable. Unlike most of you I do have an actual life outside this forum, and I don't hang on every word or thread you all sputter.

I'll only participate if a discussion is fair and reasonable. My asking for a timestamp from a video help me to understand exactly where your problem with an issue is sourced from. When I feel I am the only one here representing the other side, I cannot and do not have time to respond to every single response.

When an issue is large and has multiple narratives, it helps to suss out exactly where the differences are. You all would not read a 1,000 word post from me, that is said in a 10 min video. And I'll not spend that extra time and labor to do that. Watching a video, calling a time stamp, and getting right to the precise moment you are referring to helps everyone figure out what is trying to be said. This is not an unreasonable request.

If you would like me to actually respond, on the threads that I start, I'm going to set ground rules on whether I will respond. I do not feel any pressure to abide by your terms.

Its up to you.

It isn't Whataboutism... .when it is FACTS. I posted FACTS that the CBO came out and stated that the Trump Tax cuts paid for themselves. So all the lies about how the tax cuts were BAD, only for the rich, etc. was all pure political BS by the left.

Same goes for the smoke screen of saying well TRUMP caused the debt to raise.... Ok it did happen under Trump. Not a lie... but not telling the Truth either. Look at some facts...

1. Dems controlled the house and senate for 2 of those years.
2. Covid hit and with that spending JUMPED
- Checks went out to people
- Gov loans were given to people and many dont have to be paid back
- Business and other things were SHUT DOWN... so less income and with that less taxes collected.

So was it all TRUMPS FAULT... nope. Who had control and could have stopped spending for 2 years?

But again... people dont like to actually talk FACTS. They would rather state opinion as FACTS.
