The top 10% pay 70% while the bottom 48% pay no income taxes at all. This is not fare by anyone's measure except fore the extreme left that any amount is ever going to be enough till their is no wealthy left at all.
Most families making over a 100k these days are paying a tax burden of over 50% once you add the state taxes, county taxes, fuel taxes, phone taxes, sales taxes, VATs, corporate taxes that are passed on to us in the selling price and all the other well hidden use taxes. In reality it is closer to 60 %!
The statute of limitations has worn out on blaming Bush. We need to progress into the future with compensation based on merit and factoring the required productivity to live decent. Large overreaching inefficient government and organized labor are the problem. We need more freedom and independent thinking or at least a level playing field and our productivity!
The bottom 50% have no income tax while the bottom 25% get a redistributed asset (Marxism BTW) the top 50% pay at least 40% if you want to raise taxes then raise them on the bottom 50% as they are either paying nothing or less. There should be no representation without a little taxation and all should have some skins in the game even if it is only a token amount. This country does not have a tax problem it has a spending problem!
