Observations From The Poor Side Of Town

I really am tired of hearing people say that they can stimulate the economy and improve people's standard of living by cutting taxes.  They tend to forget one ittybitty little point.  One has to have a job in order to pay taxes.   Not only do you have to have a job, you have to have a job that pays over $10,000 a year before you start paying taxes and then you won't qualify to have your taxes cut because you don't make enough money.   As if an extra ten dollars on your refund would make that much of a difference in your life.

Looking at things from the poor side of town and almost making do with what we have,  it's hard to believe that people who make over $250,000 a year can't make ends meet and deserve a tax cut. They could always cut back on the caviar and champagne and replace it with beans and beer like the rest of us.

Two separate Americas?  You betcha!
