For what it's worth, he's German by birth and English is not his first language...

Not confident enough in my knowledge of German definite articles to make a call on that one.

Good Morning America :
1) Most people paid $190 a month to fill their car - 4 years ago. Now - you pay nearly $390 a month.
Yeah! Vote Obama 2012 - so gas can cost you $780 a month.

2) Most College tuition raised 25% in the past 4 years.
Yeah! Vote Obama 2012 - so college can cost you 50% more.

3) Most people's groceries increased 10-30% over the past 4 years.
Yeah! Vote Obama 2012 - so food can cost you 20-60% more a month.

We need to immediately stop this trend. We need CHANGE NOW! so HOPE can survive. Maybe someone who knows how money works one a very large scale is what we need?

I'm sort of surprised you had such a raving anti-Obama person on your friends list to begin with. wink.gif

I must be the only person in the world to see this argument (re: gas prices) as somewhat relevant. After the media shitstorm unleashed on Bush (and by connection Republicans) during the summer prior to the '08 collection, I see nothing wrong at all in holding President Obama and the Democratic Party to the same standard.

Applying dumb standards equally to both sides = The American Way

I'm not saying that it's not a stretch, ridiculous, or anything like that.

Just saying the door should swing both ways, no matter how awkwardly shaped the door is.

A friend of mine, who I know made about $42,000 last year, just posted that he paid 23% in federal income taxes for the year.

If he's including FICA and medicare, and he's single with no kids, then that's not completely far fetched. I paid about that in 2007 when I made about 48k

That would be in the ballpark of 20%, which is materially different from 23%.

Also, he made less money in a later year, which means his rate would be substantially lower than yours was in 2007, given the marginal rates adjust each year.

Regardless, this guy should know better than to make that mistake - he has an MPA and he once worked in state-level policy. Plus, the statement was made in the context of a debate on Romney's tax rate.
