Do you actually think that is a choice? They don’t pay “nothing” anyway – all income is subject to FICA tax up to $127,200.
That is once income exceeds $127,200 they are gifted with a 6.2% tax cut for the remainder of the year and for the 1% that happens the first week or so in January. The kid, or adult or senior flipping burgers for $7.25/hr pays FICA tax from January 1 until December 31. Bill Gates is done in by January 7.
Furthermore if any of the 1% want to join the ranks of those who do not earn enough to pay federal taxes – then stop working and give away all assets, investments and stock. Live in a cardboard box. See how fast the yammering about having to pay taxes stops.
