FACT CHECK: Are rich taxed less than secretaries? - Yahoo! News
Don't tell the libs that their lies have been outed, they will all call their therapists and overload the phone lines.
The top 10% pay a disproportionately high percentage of total tax because they make a disprortionately high percentage of wages. Even if we had a flat tax with no deductions, with income disparity as it is, you would still see statistics such as those; The owners of this country would still take those statistics out of context; and chances are, you'd still fall for it.
Do you take my word for it, or must I break it down mathematically for a third time?
I've broken it down mathematically multiple times.
They simply don't care.
yeah but the PRESIDENT and numerous idiots like yourself DO in fact make the claim that the poor or "middle class" pay more which is simply not true.
Why do leftists insist they deserve what they haven't earned?
So then you are saying that the income disparity is a good thing becuase they are paying much more in taxes.
I am curious...what is the offset negative to the income disparity? We see the positive...what is the negative?
Or are you just jealous?
I think what's being said most often is that some of the wealthiest Americans are able to exploit loopholes, credits and the lower tax rate associated with unearned income to pay a lower overall rate than others.
that's just a simple fact. It's how Theresa Heinz Kerry payed 12% on tens of millions of dollars.
well...as was evident in that vodeo clip about GPA redistribution...they only want what they dont earn as long as they dont need to give up what they DO earn.
There are deductions available to everyone...and yes, some dont get to use them, some opt NOT to use them (some people prefer renting over owning so they dont get to write off mortgage interest)..
But the bottom line is...if the time comes where they can or want to use them, they will be there for them.
And the truth is...if, in fact, it were a valid argument that the "rich" get to use the loop holes...then please explain to me why Obama is using the Buffet argument which, as you know, is BS seeing as Buffet was referring to Cap gains tax and c`omparing it to income tax of his secretary.
