I have heard a lot of class warfare these days. I thought I would make this posting to show who pays the most in this country. I believe under our current system, that we all pay too much. But the most successful are penalized unfairly and forced to pay for governmental charities in the tune of 680 billion for social programs according to www.federalbudget.com. Here's the facts. So before you criticize the Rich for not paying enough look at this. http://money.aol.com/kiplingers/tax/canvas3/_a/how-do-you-rank-as-a-taxpayer/20061211141809990001 The top-earning 50% pays 97% of all federal income taxes. The bottom 50% of earners pay just 3% of those taxes.
