To QuantumBubbler, most people who work pay taxes maybe they get money back at the end of the year but the money back from IRA is an overpayment and a return is due but Federal Taxes are paid, those who make less pay less and those who make more should pay more and to say that a millionare cannot pay taxes is wrong and for working class people to pay more taxes than those who invest is kind of crazy.

The gas/oil industry gets a kickback from the government even though they make huge profits.  Alternative energy should also get a tax break like the oil industry and then they might make a go of it.

It is costing more and more to get oil out of the ground which makes me think that easy oil extraction is over and sooner or later the countries will run out, then what?

Get it right! Most of the ‘left’ do NOT pay any taxes. They live off of other’s taxes.
