    Remember Obama had Buffet's secretary as representative of the "poor" having higher tax rate the Buffet and looking so destitute sitting beside Michelle???

    FACTS
    Since Buffet didn't reveal her actual salary just that she paid higher percent then Buffet,
    Assume all total income NOT dividends, capital gains etc.. that is she paid more then
    Buffet's 15% in taxes...
    How much income i.e. salary no bonuses etc. did she have to make to pay more then Buffet's 15%???

    UNLIKE most people I seemingly am able to access the IRS tax tables for 2009.
    from this site:SOI Tax Stats - Individual Statistical Tables by Size of Adjusted Gross Income

    Down loaded the taxes paid in 2009 spreadsheet.. very easy!!!

    13,370,297 tax returns with adjusted taxable income between $100,000 and $200,000.
    Basically 13.3 million people averaged taxable income per person $100,000 to $200,000.

    These 13.3 million returns paid 16.3% of their taxable income in taxes!
    Wait.. THAT's MORE the Buffet's 15% RIGHT???
    WELL if it's more then Buffet's secretary had taxable income more then $100,000!
    HMMM.... that's not FAIR!!!

    These 13.3 million had total taxable income 1.299 trillion.
    They paid 212.29 Billion..........divide $212.29 billion / $1.29 Trillion it is 16.3%!!!

    For you simpletons out there..AGAIN FACTS ARE AVAILABLE if you care to use them!!!
    4.6 million paid just 8.7% of their $25,000 to $30,000 taxable income in taxes!
    16.4 million people paid 11.6% of their $50,000 to $75,000 income IN TAXES!
    2.8 million paid just 6.% of their $10,000 to $15,000 income in taxes!

    Come on you simpletons.. YOU gonna let OBAMA sucker you into that BIG LIE???
    YEA... Buffet's $200,000 a year secretary paid 16%..
    AND THOSE FILTHY EVIL people that stole $5 million to $10 million or more a year???
    those 14,236 people PAID 29.1% of their INCOME in taxes!!!

    Why are people so stupid as to fall for that socialist/Class warfare cliche of Obama???

    For Buffet's secretary to pay more then 15% which Buffet did in taxes
    means she had to make over $100,000 and that's the FACTS JACK!!!!

    1. the number was over $250,000, so don't lie.
    2. she already pays more because she's a W-2 employee. THAT is the point.

    I know it's difficult for rightwingnuts to follow along. But at least try.

    It must be amazing to live in world where you can make up anything you want and not having to bother to actually check the validity of anything you hear.
