the bottom half (aka Obama supporters) pay a grand total of 2.9%. 38% do not pay ANY income tax at all. (aka fervent Obama supporters)
The top ten percent of earners -- households making $100K or more a year) pay 70% of all taxes.
For each dollar they pay in, members of the Top Ten percent receive 41 cents back in return in the form of government services. In contrast, members of the bottom fifth of the population receive $8.21 in government services and support, although they pay in nothing.
And Obama says that isn't enough.
-- To tax the living s out of the top. The top creates no jobs. they are not important.
Hey, no offense but you are fucking insane. You have no clue...not even the slightest little bit of an inkling...about economics. How is someone as really insanely stupid as you are even able to operate a computer? Doesn't all the drool from your constantly open mouth affect the keyboard? Why haven't you been hit by a bus yet? The odds have been against you since the day you wrapped that first garbage bag around your head but we've been completely unlucky that you have'nt succeeded and offed yourself.
You really, REALLY need to go live in China or better yet; North Korea. You'd fit right in with Kim Jong Il and his batty crew. There you can experiment all over the place with taxes causing job growth and business owners being unimportant.
The only thing it proves is that we should double the tax on the top 5% and give everyone else a tax cut. And eliminate the inflation tax. Lokk that up on wikipedia. Also look up hyperinflation.
The tyranny of Reagan/Bush II/Fox/Limbaugh is almost over.
We all believe and we all believe they are not paying enough or their fair share. The country will become more wealthy if we tax them more. The worst thing you can do is run a inflation tax on everyone, and pray the country does not hit hyper-inflation due to the failed suply-sided economics of the morons Reagan and Bush II. At least Bush I called it what it was voodoo economics.
