# Democrats Won't Admit Their Side Lies

Debbie Blabbermouth Shultz is a lying POS Leftist hate monger that never met misinformation that she didn't like. Sorry I should have more compassion for DWS, as she really has something wrong with her. Anyway, if there is any kind of tax rate relief, of course the people who pay the most will get the biggest reduction; but that does not mean that the middle class will pay more and the Dems know it. it is possible that they will pay a higher percentage of the total paid in, but that is how math works. There is a difference between the amount actually paid by an individual and his percentage toward the total paid.

Lets play a little math here. These numbers are made up but they prove a point. A makes 25 K and pays 10% of that income. that is 2500. B makes 75K and pays 20% of that income. That is 15,000. C makes 200K and pays 30%. that is 60k. The total paid in is 2500 + 15,000 + 60,000 = 77,500. Now lets assume everyone gets a 1% tax reduction. A now pays 2250 (9%), saving 250 dollars. B now pays 14,250 (19%) saving 750 dollars. C now pays 58,000 (19%) saving 2000 dollars. The total now paid is 74,500. So C got the largest benefit with regard to total dollars, but they all saved the same percentage of their total income.

In this senario in the original tax formula, C paid 77.4 % of the total taxes, but made 66.7% of the income (200k of the total 300K). B paid 19.4% of the taxes but made 25% of the income. A paid 3.2% of the taxes but made 8.3% of the income. In the new tax plan, C now pays 77.9% of the total (58000 of 74500). His amount decreased but his percentage of the total increased. Therefore someone could argue that his tax burden increased because he funds more of what is paid in taxes. B now pays 19.1% of the total, so his tax percentage decreased. A now pays 3% so his percentage of the total decreased as well. So who would you say benefited the most from an across the board 1% decrease in the tax rate?

In my first post I mistyped near the end. After the tax decrease C pays a 29% rate, not the 19 I typed. Sorry for not checking prior to posting.

## Democrats Won't Admit Their Side Lies

"They lie, and they don't care if people think they lie," California Democratic Party Chairman John Burton told reporter Joe Garofoli before a state delegation breakfast Monday. Burton even brought up that "as long as you lie, Joseph Goebbels, the big lie, you keep repeating it, you know."

First off, Nazi analogies are obnoxious; they trivialize Adolf Hitler's atrocities. For his part, Burton is not above spewing hate himself. In a radio interview, he told KCBS' Doug Sovern that Republicans are likely to take his remarks as a compliment. Later in the day, Burton issued a statement that stipulated...
