    Obama: Top 1% pays 39%, bottom 49% pays none

    People who follow the "hate the rich" mentality that flows daily from the White House simply don't understand that they've already won... we already re-distribute wealth so much that it's drowning America in a sea of inflated living standards...

    ... poverty-line americans live better than anyone at the poverty line anywhere else on earth.

    Obama feels that the top 1% should shoulder 50% of US personal income tax... and that the bottom 60% should pay none...

    ... now they're even cutting the social security tax to make SURE they pay nothing...

    ... on "employees" FICA, of course... the employer's half of FICA taxes remains higher... that ought to get the un-employment rate down, huh?
