    I made a spreadsheet of my taxes paid during the working years.... 1986 I paid the hightest percentage in taxes... while my income was on the lower end of the scale???? as my income went up during my working years the percentage actually went down??? I would of thought as my income went up my tax percentage would go up.. my total dollars went up but the percentage went down.. another point ... the Bush/Obama way or the Romey approach to bankruptcy will/does work,,,,,,,, the only difference is how it affects People... not the books... .. when a hedge fund BAILSOUT a company gone wrong... it is dalled DIP financing??? when the Government loans/invests in a company it is called a bailout??? if a hedge fund gets back all the loan money... and the held stock goes down that is called investing risk??? why is not the governemtn not treated same??? Sometimes investements go good and sometimes they go bad???? I am tired
