Even more terrible is the attempt over at Hot Air to get the basement riled up about the Democrats on this one. The objection, of course, is that this tax break mysteriously benefits those 46% of Americans who don't pay any taxes anyway (what? what?). Yes, we are all supposed to be completely outraged that the bottom 46% of Americans might not pay their fair share to the government. (I will not deign to link, but it's at the Green Room).

And also, what about the rich? They can't benefit enough from this tax break, because if you make more than $106,000, you aren't getting this tax cut on the rest of your income. Oh, the injustice!

I knew this was coming. As a small business owner, i have never understood how this new radical libertarian right has managed to get so many of the working people and small business owners on their side.

That is the latest total lie from Fox that the non-thinking right is parroting. Working people have taxes taken out of every single paycheck for a wide range of things - including income tax. However, many get a Federal income tax return at the end of the year and many are below the poverty line (though those people still pay social security and other taxes). That is where Fox is falsely getting the fake number from.

I can't understand how so many of the teabags apparently can't read their own paychecks - this is their boys raising taxes on them. Of course, teabags are stupid - but that is tremendously stupid.

re: #7 LudwigVanQuixote
It comes down to them not having to cut your throat, when you will cut your own. The stupidity can only be summed up in one sentence and you can apply it to just about every thing the loons preach. Irregardless of them running out the back door with all they can carry, torching the building and laughing all the way to the bank; "Somebody, somewhere, is getting something for nothing. We have to do something." Compassionate Christian Conservatives with God on their side. Bring out the armbands.

Let me make sure I am understand this.

The Republicans think that making poor people in effect poorer is somehow going to jump start the economy?

I'm basically an anti-Republican voter who would support lower payroll taxes, and these allegedly anti-tax jerks even managed to lose me on their core issue. Their core issue!

They're now official the God And Guns party. GOP GAG

I never run across people with that argument and have only seen it in passing - haven't read up on it. But do you know if they counting seniors on social security in their 46% figure? Or do they just think it's all ghetto and barrio dwellers.

This sort of unmitigated garbage is the sort of thing that blogs and media should be sounding the horn on loud and clear. Payroll taxes should be abolished - their reduction is absolutely a good way to spur the economy. There are so many ways to show that the Conservative cult is actively working to America's detriment, but this is one of the more obvious ones.

Please, let us make a bigger deal of this.

One of the things the GOP has been trying to cut are programs like the EITC on the state level. They're trying to eliminate it in Michigan and it's already been cut in New Jersey.

And they're craven enough to blame taxes on the Democrats, every single time.
