Sterling notes The IFS estimates the average household will be 200 worse off


Three-quarters of a million more people are set to become higher-rate taxpayers in April, according to a leading economic research body.</div></div>

I guess they must be all high earners...eh no.

Family walking Working couples with children are losing out, the report says

Taking into account the personal allowance, an individual will start to see their income tax and National Insurance payments increase sharply when their earnings rise above 42,475.

The biggest losers are the very richest households owing to restrictions on the amount that can be contributed to a private pension.

They have also been affected by the 50% income tax rate on earnings above 150,000 and withdrawal of the income tax personal allowance above 100,000 that were introduced in April 2010. </div></div> link (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-12321524)


Your average MC Brit is taxed at a higher level than the Wall St elite who caused the crash. Something to think about.

And they live in a broken quasi Marxist mess ... and your point is what?

If it's that we should pay attention to the inevitable result of such insanity, then I agree.

BRAVO!

Says the guy who lives in a country that can print money, still run a deficit and owes the rest of the world $14 TRILLION.

Its going swimmingly for a small % of the pop though. They are doing just fine and don't want to see any change. They have a front group...its called the Republican Party.

Q, if you are suggesting that the US should take a look at what has happened in GB, and consider traveling down a different path to avoid a similar situation in the US, then I totally agree.

We have some great examples all over the world of how not to manage an economy. All we need to do is observe and learn.

The simple lesson is that government can not manage an economy, and whenever they try, at some point, it all comes tumbling down.

The real facts are that the government's job is not to control the economy. The economy is a result of activity between private individuals. (commerce) Government intrusion into those financial relationships can do nothing but disrupt the natural and healthy economic activity.

True. I might add, the recent President's of the same Party, have over the decades, appointed RW radical fascists, posing as Christians, to the Supreme Court, to serve the Republoican agenda of a fascist nation, operating only in the interest of corporate swindlers.

Our country is at the mercy of RW Radicals, on the Supreme Court, in bed with multi-billionaire corporate CEO's, the Military Industrial Complex, the Oil Industry, Big Pharma, Health insurance corporations, and as we saw, RW, Activist S.C.threw out the Fla. State Supreme Court Decision, to count the votes in Florida, in order to appoint Bush, and the Bush/Cheney radical agenda of Imperialism.

An Administration which broke law after law, including lying the country into an illegal pre-emptive war, clearly defined in Nuremberg Law as criminal wars of aggression.

How much worse can it get, than that?

Our corrupted process, rewards the Wall St., swindlers, and heartless Health Insurance Corps., who financially destroy the parents of ioll chidren in our country, who are fighting to to survive the life threatening diseases, many the result of the filthy food, water and air, while at the same time, protecting the polluting pigs who destroy their so caloled, God's Green Earth, spreading a multitude of illnesses across this country, compliments of the Grand Oil Party, filthy farming practices, hormones and antibiotics in livestock we eat, fracking poisosns in our water and air, whle they ridiculously claim to be the Party of God!

WE are witnessing the worst of many "Christian" mass killings, fomented, approved and protected by the multifaceted fingers of RW political, military, and religious corruption, in a system which, by it's very nature, corrupts all who seek to participate.

Nothing will change, until Americans demand Public financed campaigns, and damancd that the recent activist RW supreme Court's decision, allowing for secret domestic and FOREIGN money form corrupt corporate influence, appointing our representatives.

Until Americans rise up against our corrupted system, The Neocon Republican fascists will continue to use FEAR, LIES, God, Gays and Guns, to distract their thoughtless sheep from the reality of what they have created.

<span style="color: #000099">Says the guy who lives in a country that is doing the same thing, also runs a deficit, who owes the rest of the world 2.27 trillion, 58% of it's GDP, whose debt per capita is over three times what it is in the US.

FYI. The USA is not printing money nor does it have the authority to. The Fed is. The Fed is not part of the US government. It is a European owned private corporation. QE2 is direct evidence of that. No one in the US government authorized QE2. In fact, the US government, including Obama objected to it. The Fed did it anyway.</span>

Correct, and the smartest thing I've seen posted hereabouts!
