Practically Speaking

Kyle and her husband moved to Brookfield in 1986. She became active in local politics and started blogging in 2004. Her focus is primarily on local issues but often includes state and national topics, too. Kyle looks at things from the taxpayers' perspective in a creative, yet down to earth way, addressing them from a practical point of view.

Since the election of 2006

 

Hi Kyle, kind of an interesting email I got from a friend. Your a statistaclly oriented person so I thought I might forward it to you for your enjoyment. Also kind of interesting how all the heating and ventilation (new word for air conditioning) need to be replaced at the other facilities. I hope all the yes people can enjoy that. Now if the Democrats get into office and repeal the Bush tax cut's they too won't be able to afford their house any more either. It all adds up in the end. Just a tax Hell. Larry KnetzgerPart 1


In just one year .  Remember the election in 2006?
Thought you might like to read the following:
A little over one year ago:

 

1) Consumer confidence stood at a 2 1/2 year high;
2) Regular gasoline sold for $2.19 a gallon;
3) The unemployment rate was 4.5%.
Since voting in a Democratic Congress in 2006 we have seen:
1) Consumer confidence plummet;
2) The cost of regular gasoline soar to over $3.50 a gallon;
3) Unemployment is up to 5% (a 10% increase);
4) American households have seen $2.3 trillion in equity value evaporate (stock and mutual fund losses);
5) Americans have seen their home equity drop by $1.2 trillion dollars;
6) 1% of American homes are in foreclosure.

 

America voted for change in 2006, and we got it!
Remember it's Congress that makes law not the President. He has to work with what's handed to him.
Quote of the Day........'My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the world.  I hope you'll join with me as we try to change it.' -- Barack Obama

 

Part 2:
Taxes...
Whether Democrat or a Republican you will find these statistics enlightening and amazing.

 

 www.taxfoundation.org/publications/show/151.html
Taxes under Clinton 1999                   Taxes under Bush 2008
Single making 30K - tax $8,400             Single making 30K - tax $4,500

Single making 50K - tax $14,000          Single making 50K - tax $12,500
Single making 75K - tax $23,250          Single making 75K - tax $18,750
Married making 60K - tax $16,800       Married making 60K- tax $9,000
Married making 75K - tax $21,000       Married making 75K - tax $18,750
Married making 125K - tax $38,750     Married making 125K - tax $31,250

Both democratic candidates will return to the higher tax rates
It is amazing how many people that fall into the categories above think Bush is screwing them and Bill Clinton was the greatest President ever. If Obama or Hillary are elected, they both say they will repeal the Bush tax cuts and a good portion of the people that fall into the categories above can't wait for it to happen. This is like the movie The Sting with Paul Newman; you scam somebody out of some money and they don't even know what happened.
