    Over 49% of US Population Pays No Federal Taxes so No vote for them.

    As usual, Stone posts a lie. He forgets that Social Secuity is a Federal Tax. Thanks to many of the tax reform initiatives by the Republicans, ie personal deductions many people don't pay Federal Income Tax. That number is less than 50 percent. Those in the top one percent actually pay a lower effective FICA tax than those making 106,000 and down. Those same 1 percenters overall have a lower effective income tax rate than the middle to lower income class.
