    Anyone who owns a calculator, if they know how to use one could see that.

    Unfortunately it takes a link to the CBO report for some to see, and yet the hackery will continue and the parroting will ensue

    Liberals are convinced that the poor who pay no taxes at all, are still paying more in taxes than the rich who pay the majority of taxes.

    i am not rich so i say this with honesty. STOP MAKING THEM PAY FOR EVERYTHING THAN COMPLAIN AT THEM FOR PAYING.

    There we now return u to ur life hopefully a bit more educated.


    Also keep in mind the rich can always pack up and leave.

    Shares? Who pays besides the wealthy?

    The information on the link is absolutely meaningless. What is reflected is nothing more than the fact that we have a progressive tax scheme, whereby portions of income at higher levels incur higher taxation rates. The phenomenon that is seen in the graph is that higher tax brackets pay a higher portion of taxes, than the portion of income they earn, while lower brackets pay a lower share of taxes than the share of income they earn. THAT IS GOING TO BE TRUE BY THE VERY NATURE AND DEFINITION OF A PROGRESSIVE TAX SYSTEM. Even if the income tax rate for the lowest tax bracket was 5%, and the highest tax bracket was 10%, the same phenomenon would be observed. It's a tautological correlation.

    Is there anyone here that didn't know that about our tax system?

    I do, and I'm far from wealthy.
