    Sadly, they are paying WAY more than their fair share, while the lazy parasite class (ie liberals, progressives, Democrats, etc.) are along for the free ride in this country. These are numbers directly from the IRS and cannot be disputed:

    The top 1% of EARNERS (key word here parasites - the wealthy EARN their wealth - they don't "have it" as you idiots like to say) pay almost 40% of all taxes.

    The top 10% of EARNERS pay 70% of all taxes!!!

    Meanwhile, the filthy liberal, progressive, Democrat lazy parasites earn 13% of the wealth but pay only 3%

    This is ridiculously unfair. If they earn 13% of the wealth, they should shoulder the burden for 13% of the taxes. How can these idiot parasites complain the wealthy don't pay their fair share when the top 1% pays nearly 40% of all taxes, and the top 10% pays an asinine 70%?!?!?! More proof of how stupid the idiot liberal, progressive, Democrat parasites are....

    What the Top 10 Percent of Earners Really Pay in Taxes

    Those top 10% buy politicians to change laws so they can legally screw the American people.

    Right winger drooling morons are simply too fucking stupid to ever get that.

    But lets look at some facts.

    The economic meltdown led by Wall Street. How can trillions be taken out of the economy without anyone going to jail? Because what used to be against the law isn't. Not anymore.

    How can the US Chamber of Commerce, financed by China, Russia and India, give tens of millions to Republican politicians 10 to 1 over Democrats, but then say, "Oh, we keep our money in "separate" accounts". Oh sure. Somehow, they come up with tens of millions of dollars from these countries. It disappears, but none of it ends up paying Republican politicians. Thanks to the Supreme Court, they get to keep their accounting secret. A conservative Supreme Court that has shown itself to be the most partisan in history, voting again and again 5 to 4.

    Health care companies don't make anything. They down employ any doctors. They make their money from skimming insurance policies. How can such a CEO receive a paycheck for $100,000,000.00? How is that legally possible? Because NOW it's "legal".

    Notice Republicans don't even seem to know that "supply and demand" is the foundation of capitalism. No wonder they see these scams as "capitalism" and as long as it's legal, it's OK! The fuckers.

    It's not about how hard you work or how thrifty you are. It's about how much money you have and who you can pay off.

    Thank you for a sublimly ignorant post! Look at the history of America - we kept black people as slaves. So by your ignorant rationale, we should bring back slavery because that's what we used to have.

    Just because there was terribly injustice in history brought to us by radical left-wing parasites of the past, doesn't mean we should continue those injustices. And just because the injustice now is not quite as bad as before doesn't mean it's ok. To keep with the analogy, that would be like saying things are better now because people are only allowed 1 slave as opposed to unlimited slaves. It's STILL a great injustice. Just like this tax system were the parasite class earns 13% of the wealth but only carries 3% of the tax burden.

    You're quote is as ignorant as you are. It's not Republicans job to "do something for others". It's YOUR job to get your lazy, pathetic, parasite ass up out of bed and do for YOURSELF. You lazy liberals make me sick. You've been blessed with the greatest country in the world that allows you to pursue anything you want, and you're all too damn lazy to get out of bed. You want Republicans to "do for you".

    YES!!!!!!
    I have such a problem with this!
    Why should the rich pay SOOOO much more for a "product" they use less of. The poor are the ones that need government programs but the rich are the ones funding them!
    I for one think it is ridiculous!

    You mean like Warren Buffet?

    1) If you're going to start off with emotionally charged terms, you lose the right to stake claims to facts.

    2) You have to SPEND money to MAKE money, right? So it stands to reason that those who MAKE the most HAD the most to spend.

    And the top 10% MAKE how much of total income?

    Like Warren Buffet?

    You said you had facts and figures from the IRS. All you're offering is the proclamations of a blogger. Here are some facts and figures directly from the IRS. Some interesting things to note.

    The TOP category of gross taxes generated is the $100-$200 group. Comes out to a tax rate of 17.6% of taxable income. Not exactly the big deal you're trying to make it out to be.

    You left out of the picture how much of the income they receive.

    In anticipation for when you correct that omission, I'll leave you with the thoughts of a great liberal economist from the past on the subject of taxation:

    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. … It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Adam Smith, The Wealth of Nations

    Where is the logic in what you're trying to imply? Tax the poor who use benefits because of their low income, to pay for those benefits being used? That is not how to run a society. It's how to "cleanse" a society.

    And let's be honest, entitlements are not the mega portion of government spending that people try to make it out to be. Social Security and Medicare do take a sizeable chuck, but those are things that are available to even the richest person. The only people who use them without paying into them are the disabled. I really hope you're not going to suggest we fuck over the disabled.
