$35,000 in investment income? What? HUH? That means I got one hell of an inheritance coming to me, now I want to repeal estate taxes!

(Who the heck came up with these numbers?)



a WSJ tea-bagger....

took typical taxpayer units: single parent, retired couple, single person, family with 4 kids....

made up numbers that would, in three cases, maximize their tax increase

and one where the income's is high, but taxes don't change (retirees are slackers and LOOTERs (TOTAL coincidence that retired couple are Pakistani))


[ $35k investment income? typical TMFr could do that with 200K assests
