Top 1% of US taxpayers pay as much as the entire bottom 95%

In case you were dumb enough to fall for Obama's line that the rich aren't paying their "fare share," here's proof that the top 1% of income earners pay as much in federal income taxes as the bottom 95%. Feeling pretty stupid? You probably should have stayed home on Election Day.

The top 1% of US taxpayers pay almost as much in federal income taxes as the entire bottom 95%, and half of that bottom group paid no taxes at all in 2010

The Christmas Story, Luke 2:1-20

Today’s holiday celebrates the birth of Christ as told here from the King James Bible, Luke 2:1-20. Regardless of religious persuasion, the story offers a tale of simplicity and hope to a world in need.

"And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed.
(And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)
And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.
And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, (because he was of the house and lineage of David).
To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.
And so it was, that while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.
And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them; and they were sore afraid.
And the angel said unto them, “Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
‘For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
‘And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.’
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.”
And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.
And they came with haste, and found Mary and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.
And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child.
And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.
But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.
And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them."

The 7 most illuminating economic charts of 2012

Ironic: Teacher pension funds invested in gun makers

Interesting that the people who supervise investments for the nation's massive teacher unions did not have a problem investing in gun manufacturers before the school massacre in Connecticut. Now they're scrambling to divest their portfolios.

From The Associated Press: 
For years, the gun industry has been a reliable investment, attracting tens of millions of dollars from some of the nation’s largest retirement funds. The firearms business has been strong, driven by relaxed laws for carrying concealed handguns and by buyers who feared that tighter gun restrictions were more likely under President Obama. 

But after the bloodbath in Connecticut, the practice is under review in at least four states, including two of the most populous, California and New York.
 I guess as long as the pension funds were returning a solid profit, it didn't matter where the money was placed? What say you liberals?

Committee Chairpersons for 2013-14 Pennsylvania Senate Session

Sen. Joe Scarnati (R-25), president pro tempore of the Pennsylvania Senate, has announced committee chairmanship assignments for the Senate's 22 Senate Standing Committees.

Columnist: It's not the 'gun culture,' it's the American culture

Excellent column by J.D. Mullane about the root causes of the evil that visited Sandy Hook, Conn., last Friday:
To see the Sandy Hook massacre as unique to its circumstances, apart from all the others, is to avoid an uncomfortable topic. What feeds and enables this madness is not the “gun culture.” It’s the American culture.

We’ve cheapened human life. We snuff it when it is helpless and inconvenient. In three states (so far) we legally euthanize it when it is old, infirm and a burden.

The cheapness of human life permeates our popular entertainment. With movies, television and song lyrics, nihilism is, literally, in the air.

Evil is glamorized. Check the thrill-kill video games “Modern Warfare,” “Resident Evil 6 — You Are Dead,” “Sleeping Dogs” or “TheWitcher 2.” The violence is barbaric.

Yet, on Dec. 25, millions of these games will be presented as gifts to young people who will play them on Christmas Day.

Who seriously argues that this stuff has little influence on attitudes and behaviors?

Here we go with the knee-jerk reaction of left-wing politicians.

Democratic Pennsylvania Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz: "We can work to prevent these situations from happening again by engaging in a serious conversation about the issue of gun violence in our country."

Schwartz is rumored to be a 2014 candidate for Pennsylvania governor.

Dear Rep. Schwartz: A depraved, mentally-disturbed person who would target innocent children is not going to be deterred by additional gun control laws.

The killer could have used  a knife or a bat or his hands to kill his victims.

The debate should be about how we treat the mentally ill in this country, not about guns.

Guest column: Obamacare Not Ready For Primetime

By Congressman Joe Pitts

It has been nearly 1,000 days since President Obama signed his health care bill into law. With the Supreme Court upholding much of the law earlier this year and the political situation in Washington staying the same following the election, the administration will have free reign to implement the President’s vision for health care.

I vigorously opposed the bill because I believed it would fail to deal with our biggest health care problem: rising costs. Indeed, the Congressional Budget Office could not back up the President’s claims that the bill would make health care less expensive in the foreseeable future. For many people, their premium is already going up.

This week, the Associated Press reported that insurers will be charging a new $63 fee in the coming year. When Obamacare was being considered this was just one of the many fees and charges hidden from consumers. Taxes will be assessed on insurers, medical device manufacturers and pharmaceutical companies but the real people footing the bill will be patients.

The taxes are all set to be collected, but Obamacare’s benefits aren’t quite ready for primetime yet. The centerpiece of the law is the establishment of health care exchanges in the 50 states. Exchanges could be a good idea, if they were truly an easy way for insurers to offer plans and for consumers to have real choices.

The law gives states a choice about whether to create and operate the insurance exchange within their borders. States can also choose to “partner” with the federal government to create an exchange or leave the responsibility completely up to Washington.

Republicans are typically the party that promotes federalism, so it may be initially confusing to find that many Republican governors have decided to let the federal government run the exchange in their state. In fact, this week Governor Tom Corbett announced that Pennsylvania would elect not to create a state-based exchange.

There are some fundamental problems that make it unwise for a state to create one of these exchanges on behalf of the federal government. First of all, the rules aren’t actually written yet. The Department of Health and Human Services avoided putting out any detailed regulations governing state-based exchanges until after the election.

Throughout this year, governors and other state officials from both parties and from across the country wrote detailed letters to Health and Human Services Secretary Sebelius asking for information. Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton (R-MI) and I also wrote the Secretary asking her to reply promptly. Some letters elicited no response and others were barely acknowledged. Important questions remain unanswered.

Secondly, even now, the guidance from HHS is not enough for states to determine how much it would cost to set up an exchange. These insurance marketplaces have to be up and running by September 30, 2013. With the rules still largely undefined, states would be starting a race without knowing what the track looks like or whether they have enough gasoline to get across the finish line.

Finally, even with the little guidance that is out there it is evident that states will not be in the driver seat. How these exchanges will be structured will be determined almost completely by bureaucrats in Washington.

At this time, only 14 states have elected to run their own exchange. Twenty-four states have decided to leave it up to the federal government. It makes perfect sense. The “choices” states will be able to make in setting up an exchange are largely illusory.

Because the federal government hasn’t been doing their job in providing guidance, states are reluctant to help share the burden. HHS did not anticipate running so many exchanges in so many states. The President’s health plan simply won’t work without these marketplaces. They will be the only way for individuals to reliably purchase insurance that meets government requirements and avoid new tax penalties. The clock is ticking, and there is no telling whether Obamacare will be ready.

U.S. Rep. Joe Pitts is a Republican who represents Pennsylvania's 16th Congressional District.

Surprise: New insurance fee in Obamacare hits U.S. workers in 2013

Breaking news from The Associated Press for all the idiots who voted for Obama: Your medical plan is facing an unexpected expense, so you probably are, too. It’s a new, $63-per-head fee to cushion the cost of covering people with pre-existing conditions under President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul. The charge, buried in a recent regulation, works out to tens of millions of dollars for the largest companies, employers say. Most of that is likely to be passed on to workers.
