Don’t have the time but have to set Jimbo straight:
The Rich DO NOT pay most of the taxes. They pay about half of the FEDERAL taxes. FEDERAL income taxes account for only 20% of ALL taxes going to Federal government. Income taxes are less than 1/2 of federal taxes and 20% of all taxes at all levels of government
Payroll taxes (soc sec/medicare/unemployment ins) are paid mostly by the bottom 90% of wage earners. And tax rates for the wealthy are about 1/3 lower than wage earners, meaning it is wage earners who keep the government running, not the wealthy.
Regarding the poor: the DO PAY TAXES; gas, sales, utility taxes, etc.
So stop with you BS Jim.
