    Is 22% more then 14%?

    Is $123,477 MORE then $5,736 by 2,152%?

    I really would like ALL of you to honestly tell me that is NOT TRUE if it isn't!

    Because THE FACTS as presented by the IRS in 2008 of the 90 million tax returns
    PROVE Obama is a f...ing LIAR!!!

    1) 86 million tax returns in 2008 paid 14% of their TAXABLE income in TAXES PAID!
    2) 4.3 million returns paid: 22% of their taxable income in taxes!
    3) These 4.3 million returns PAID an average of $123,477
    4) The 86 million returns paid an average of $5,736
    5) THE 4.3 million PAID 2,152% MORE then the 86 million average return!

    Why would you expect an honest answer to a dishonest question?

    Rather, it proves you're a f-ing moron for thinking the rich pay more in taxes than the middle-class. It has been explained numerous times why. If you still don't get it, either you're a liar yourself, or just a moron.

    There is no way of knowing what your talking about. You might try quoting the original statement so that your post has some context.

    Maybe Warren Buffet is lying. Did you think about that?

    This is just healthmyth's mo: he posts a bunch of data, which he says dispute some liberal idea or other but which really don't, and then demands that people "refute the numbers."

    There is of course no need to dispute the numbers, nor is that the proper response. The proper response is to point out that the numbers, if true, don't mean what he's claiming they mean. Which they' don't, as usual.

    Hey dumbass no one said that ALL rich people pay less taxes then poor people. It is some rich people that pay less. Perhaps if you didn't have your head so far up your ass that you can see your tongue you'd have a clue.

    The only thing honest in Washington, DC is the sign that says you just left the city.
