By T. J. McCormack

A study by the New York City Independent Budget Office was released this week, and you didn't hear much about it in the mainstream media because it hurts their candidate's message.

Keep in mind, I'm your Conservative Everyman. I'm no economist, nor am I a political scientist. I call 'em as I see 'em just like you do. And away we go...

New York City has a little more than 8 million residents. Of those many millions, 1% -- ONE PERCENT -- pays 43% of the income taxes. You know how many people that works out to? About 35,000 people.

Picture in your mind's eye the City of New York, not just Manhattan, but all five boroughs. Imagine the throngs here right now enjoying the holidays. Think about the police presence, the sanitation, the schools brimming with children...East Side, West Side, The Village -- a hell of a town! 8 million people!

Now imagine Yankee Stadium, or any average Major League ballpark, and fill it except for the nosebleed seats. That tiny number pays almost HALF the operating costs for the city. How's THAT for fair?

Another kick in the head is that ten percent of New Yorkers pay 71% of the taxes. Guess how much income it takes to crack that ten percent?You don't have to be one of the millionaires or billionaires whom the Divider in Chief loves to vilify. You need not be an evil fat cat making $200,000 -- perish the thought! What's it take to crack the top ten percent in the most expensive city in America? $105,000. Yep, a buck five.

And they talk about shared sacrifice. They blather on and beat annoying drums chanting about fairness and "Tax the rich until they're poor". They should all be going door to door chanting to the one percenters, "Thank You for the Civil Services, We Owe You One!"

When I think about the wealthy in America, I think about the hard work, the risk and the sacrifice it takes to succeed. I think about all the people able to feed their children and send them to school because they have jobs created by the successful risk-takers. I don't hold a grudge against the big time rich -- except for limousine liberal millionaires in Hollywood.

Whatever you think about those disingenuous narcissists, multiply it by 75 and you're in my neighborhood. Heck with them. Until they remit an extra couple grand to http://pay.gov, they have zero credibility just like all leftists seeking to raise taxes.

The time has come to finally poke holes in the rhetoric of the Occupy rabble. It is time to pull back the curtain on leftists who seek to pit American vs American in a class war under the false pretense of fairness. It is time to silence the ugliness of envy. It is time to shame the selfishness and hatred of the American Left, starting with the election of a new president...That would make me fairly happy.

The only thing funny from T.J. McCormack, the conservative everyman, is a comedian, radio talk show host and commentator was this"

" LOL

I can go with his statement somewhat on state and fed taxes. But what about all the others. A 50g income is still taxed nearly half with no independents.
Untill they, "the rich" can bring back higher income to the less skilled labor force,( like myself ) this will go on forever.
What i'm trying to say is lower income for full time workers has to be subsidized for a family to make it. Or in many cases, just to get to work.
So untill they can fix this little dilemma, fukc you T. J. McCormackou HAHA

In just about all cases, lower income (as long as they stay in the work place and work hard), always move up on the income scale.

Thats the way it works and is ignored by the left. You have to start somewhere. Everyone cannot start at a high income and expect that income to buy you everything you need or want. Inflation would ruin us if we did that.

Its quite amazing to me that the left comes across as though all of America remains at minimum wage their entire lives except the "Rich", and the "Rich" must be punished for that.

Can you please show me were anything I said reflects that statment>>>

What i'm saying is, untill income is in balance somewhat with an individuale being able just to support a family without government subsidized housing, loans and ect, expect the meaningless class warfare fights.

You don't win when you tell lies
You don't win when you steal the whiches of other
you don't win when you bare false witness
you don't win when you stick your head out for in-justice
you don't win when you let the poor become the majority
you don't win when you don't believe in equal right
you don't win when when selfishness overcome your deeds
you don't win when you sell the people out to please youself/friend and your famaily
and this is the way of the republican party
and it bad for them politically

change the status quo and you'll win election

Michael steal said the same thing

You can get out of that lifestyle. I am from alliance right next to canton. Was a terrible student, worked in factories after high school (american steel, longaberger, B&W) but saw the life it was gonna make for me and said no way not for me. Dad was Babcock Wilcox worker for 30 years and I followed right in his steps but the life sucks. It took me 6 six years to do something but it is possible and its easy, it just takes time. And you know what the time is going to pass no matter what you do so you might as well do something during that time instead of just hanging out and waiting (hoping) for the government to take more from the rich.

One more thing lets say the government comes out with a program that guarantees that if you graduate high school and get a job doing whatever they will promise you a living wage to do all that you mentioned with no welfare. The way economics work is that prices will rise because demand will go up and that living wage amount will become the new baseline for barley getting by, you cannot get around that.

Kiss my Ass. You don't know me. If you like, we could match paychecks. But that's not the issue. I see all these kids look as tho there is no future. And i can see why. Its not a problem of the poor wanting handouts, but more how our elected officials have sold the American workers out to off shore slave labor PERIOD...

If a robot (or mexican) can do your job for half the cost then that is all your job is worth. A company is in business to make money not take care of people. It is up to the individual to make them worthwhile.

Its like having a garage sale and putting a price of $100 on a bike. If nobody is willing to pay $100 for the bike but they all offer $70 then that is all the bike is worth.

Ok! That is fine for someone that is a sellout who lives the American lifestyle from another countrys labor that don't play by the same rules.

So, if a businessman moves unskilled american jobs on to the slave labor of another Country, gets extremely rich by selling his product right back to us at a 1000% markup with no tarrifs, thats all good?
And yet bitch about helping out the unemployed.

So what are you saying? folk form another country shouldn't
take a cheap
job because american them self is not doing it. Because
it's setting a bad example for employer, so
it better to sit and wait for the 1st and 15th to get
the handout is that what you are saying.?

No what it is is this. If you are a USA based company you should not be allowed to have the product made by labor outside this country without paying a huge tarriff for it. Also if you want to import goods you should have to pay a tax making it so that the costs on saod goods are closely competitive so as to safegaurd the jobs in this nation. Then you wont need handouts and welfare. Simple solutions work best imho.

That doesn't work because american companies have to compete with countries all over the world and american companies sell their stuff all over as well. Instead of trying to isolate ourselves american workers should find better way to compete rather than having the gov't stack the deck by imposing tariffs. All those things you mentioned have been done in the past and they were failures because they either a) make the american company non competitive with the foreign counterpart or b) it jacks the price up of everything for the consumer because you are interfering with the free market.
