Same old class-warfare retoric you clowns have been trying to peddle every election. Over 90% of income taxes are paid by less than 10% of wage earners - fair huh? Those are the top 50% of wage earners. So the "poor" get a free ride when it comes to responsibility as citizens in supporting goverment. Thats why the "rich" always get income tax breaks, they are the only ones paying income taxes.
FICA taxes are paid by everyone, unless you so filthy rich you dont have to work for a living. Capped at about 80K, it takes off probably 20% of your income. Hurts the poor more than the rich. So when it comes to social welfare and such like that, (ss, and medicare), it is paid largely by the working class people, who I will consider poor. Sales taxes are paid by everyone at the same rate.
i'm a single person who has always paid 15-20 % of income in taxes my whole life.I need more breaks.I'm tired of giving my hard earned money to pay exorbitant salaries to govt workers and politians.They push pencil and papers for too much money.Fire a bunch of government workers like what is happening to all the private sector people.Privatize all government jobs.yeh!LESS TAXES.
