    Super Rich See Federal Taxes Drop Dramatically
    Apr 17, 2011 – WASHINGTON -- As millions of procrastinators scramble to meet Monday's tax filing deadline, ponder this: The super rich pay a lot less taxes than they did a couple of decades ago, and nearly half of U.S. households pay no income taxes at all.

    Tax the fuckers and take back their bonuses.

    All we hear is tax the rich they should not get the tax cuts!! Those tax cuts amount to $700 billion for the rich over a ten year period. However the other tax cuts for the 'majority of Americans" is $3 trillion over a ten year period.

    FAQ on Bush tax cuts: What you need to know - Sep. 15, 2010

    Do you think we can afford to give everyone who is not 'rich' a $3 trillion tax cut over the next 10 years?
