The way I see it with the new

The way I see it with the new Obama taxation program for the rich. You win $75 million. Now you are rich. Obama takes 67,500,000 under his 90% tax program on the rich. You are left with $7,500,000 dollars. Now he gets 35% of that because it is income. So he gets $2,625,000 more and you are left with $4,875,000 dollars after winning $75 million. Is the LOTTERY worth it now ? Now you should understand The TEA PARTIES.

Its not pointless Rucker. The

Its not pointless Rucker. The BO administration is considering a 90% tax on the rich as stated by boston. In addition to that there is a proposal to confiscate all assets in 401ks. Dont beleive me? An "economist" on his trasition team suggested it. Rucker, better hope you havent saved any money, so it wont hurt so bad when its taken.

save what money

save what money urbanmeyerhater ( as i hate the gators as well) i am poor! so that 90% tax won't affect me at all. what i was really saying that is pointless is that why do we need to know were the tickets were sold? and why does it effect us here in augusta? thats a waste of my time to read as this comment is a waste of my time as well.
