    Tax bills for rich families approach 30-year high


    Yeah,an AP story, the lies of the left are finally being exposed.

    Why is Obama trying to destroy the wealth builders of America?

    "For 2013, families with incomes in the top 20 percent of the nation will pay an average of 27.2 percent of their income in federal taxes, according to projections by the Tax Policy Center, a research organization based in Washington. The top 1 percent of households, those with incomes averaging $1.4 million, will pay an average of 35.5 percent.

    Those tax rates, which include income, payroll, corporate and estate taxes, are among the highest since 1979."

    • Rates were even higher before 1979.
      Why are conservatives trying to destroy the country through starving our government of money needed to keep the republic healthy??

      If the rich want to pay less as a percentage then they should try to get wages up to where they should be.
