    Hill Poll: Likely voters prefer lower individual, business tax rates - TheHill.com

    "Three-quarters of likely voters believe the nation’s top earners should pay lower, not higher, tax rates, according to a new poll for The Hill.

    The big majority opted for a lower tax bill when asked to choose specific rates; precisely 75 percent said the right level for top earners was 30 percent or below.

    The current rate for top earners is 35 percent. Only 4 percent thought it was appropriate to take 40 percent, which is approximately the level that President Obama is seeking from January 2013 onward.

    The Hill Poll also found that 73 percent of likely voters believe corporations should pay a lower rate than the current 35 percent, as both the White House and Republicans push plans to lower rates.........."

    This is what happens when people (Obama) with wealth envy use buzz words like "fair share" and are unable to define the term. Looks like the American public ain't buying what Dear Ruler is selling.

    With more than 49% of Americans paying no Federal Income Tax at all, I think it's a big joke for Obama to be bitching about the rich not paying their fair share. The rich are carrying all the dead wood in this country. Everybody needs some skin in the game regardless of income. Everybody should have the same tax rate, i.e., 10%.

    That would be corrected with the installation of The Fair Tax as proposed. Prostitutes, drug dealers, thieves, lawyers, EVERYBODY would pay tax on what they purchase. Income tax (and the bigger part of the IRS) would go away.:clap2:

    Fat chance of that ever happening...but it would be nice.
