    because they don't read. We need Big Dog to go on a 'splainin tour.

    I ♥ President Obama. ~ Yes, we did. Again.
    NOW: Hands off SocSec, Medicare and Medicaid. NO Grand Bargain.
    Rich pay a bit more. DoD take a bit less. End war on Afghanistan sooner.

        wiki and just as baffled as before the visit. My brain does not comprehend such language; it's scammy and nonsensical to me. Plus, I don't have a lick of math. :-P
        If someone could make an EZ soundbite explaining marginal tax rate, it would be a freakin miracle. Is it a good thing?
        I'm below poverty level on SocSec and odd jobs with 1 year till Medicare, so we don't pay much Fed tax, if any.

        •  I would hope you own NO tax other than SS (0+ / 0-)

          and Medicare.  I might give it a try one day soon and see if it works for you.  I'll have to look at that wiki page in the meantime.
