    I mean, I read all about the Tax Cut and Jobs Act and how it would help me, but I'm punching the numbers into TurboTax and I can't believe how low my effective tax rate is.

    Yeah, the 5 kids and the mortgage interest and all that jazz help, but really, Uncle Sam? That's it?

    Don't get me wrong. I'm not volunteering any more than I have to pay to avoid going to the slammer, but in theory, I'm willing to pony up a few extra smackers to help balance the budget and even to help provide universal healthcare.

    Now all we need to do is find some politicians who'd know how to administer my extra tax $$ and we'll be perfect.

    You can the money to me Sh. I'll be sure and see to it that it goes DIRECTLY to the debt and save health care.

    Thanks in advance.

    But then, we also need to give more taxes in carbon emissions as well, don't forget, or we will all die in 12 years.

    Just send me the money and I will see to it the money goes to save us all..............that is, if you want to live.

    It would be wasted on a fan of the Reds and Ohio State. Sorry.

    Come over to the DARK side, whodey, and we'll talk.

    Ok, maybe wasted on the Reds but definitely now on the Buckeyes.

    Maybe this is what Mango Unchained meant when he was talking of getting people from Norway to come to the U.S.

    I've personally created (well, the business that I co-founded) 6 full time jobs, exclusive of myself and my partner.

    According to "economic theory" on this forum if you pay more tax you'll have
    to employ less people. Conversely if you pay less tax you will create more jobs!

    Don't worry; your kids and grandkids will wind up paying for the low taxes of today.
