  •  marginal tax rates (0+ / 0-)

    Getting bumped from 15 to 25 doesn't mean paying 25% on all income... the text is a little misleading.

    •  Is that so? (0+ / 0-)

      All I said was foks could get bumped from one bracket to another.

      Nowhere did I claim a tax filer would pay 25%.

      I would really like you to defend your so called claim, and if that involves putting words in my mouth, then I suggest you fold it 5 times and put it where the Moon doesn't shine.

      •  not sure why you are so hostile (0+ / 0-)

        The way your paragraph was phrased seemed (to me) to be somewhat misleading. Something about the single guys who get a raise part. Idk. It wasn't a personal attack on you.

        •  Is it a fact or not? (0+ / 0-)

          bracket creep will move people from the 15% bracket to the 25% bracket.

          Just the facts....

          •  the raise (0+ / 0-)

            Getting a raise is not relevant here in terms of chained cpi. Even without chained cpi a raise may move you into another tax bracket. So why the need to bring it up? Already many people believe getting a raise and moving into another tax bracket will result in less take home pay.

            That's why I found it misleading. Have a nice day.
