I've seen this somewhere else as well. Just plain incrediable! Who is paying into the system? My folks have social security and a small pension. Their tax guy told them no more filing at all, they don't make any earned income that brings them into a tax bracket to pay in any longer. So, there has to be an increase in capital gains taxes or something along those lines if the rich refuse to pay more tax on income that is taxable to them. And, the corporations that tell the gov't that they are now registered as off-shore should be told to get the hell out of America - nothing more than outright crooks. And, they don't even get fined or anything.
