    The taxes for everyone are too high. When the Income tax was amended into the Constitution, it was done so on the premise that it would never go above 5%. Needless to say the politicians broke that promise within a few years.

    Why on earth should we be paying our government so much that we need to work until March/April to pay them off?

    If we go by what Mitt says, "Food, Education and Health Care" are "gifts". Then "jobs" must be charity. Too bad Mitt gives so much to the Chinese.

    "Conservatives say if you don't give the rich more money, they will lose their incentive to invest. As for the poor, they tell us they've lost all incentive because we've given them too much money."

    And most people don't know that Income Taxes only go towards paying the Interest on the National Debt.

    So if Congress controlled the currency and not the Federal Reserve, there would be no need for income taxes at all.

    Romney pays 14% on his taxes.

    I pay 23%.

    This is the real redistribution of wealth in America.....welfare for the wealthy.

    The 400 highest-earning taxpayers in the U.S. reported a record $105 billion in total adjusted gross income in 2006, but they paid just $18 billion in tax, new Internal Revenue Service figures show. That works out to an average federal income tax bite of 17%--the lowest rate paid by the richest 400 during the 15-year period covered by the IRS statistics.
