    I'm willing to wager that the 49% of Americans that pay NO taxes are mostly Democrats so I will have to go with Republicans paying more taxes.

    Well we know Warren Buffet should pay more taxes than anyone, but thanks to friendly loopholes that left leaning goober pays less than his secretary, so is this really a metric we can gauge?

    So, taxes, pre or post loophole?

    That's true.

    But then they start enough money so they can hire tax professionals and take advantage of all the loopholes they may not have known existed otherwise.

    I would say that those who turn over the largest percentage of their income to taxes are the flag-waving, Bible thumping, anti-labor wage slaves who are too stupid to realize they're getting screwed by the system.

    AKA, the republican base.

    I have no idea...

    I do know the "blue" states do send more federal income taxes to DC, but who's to know whether these taxes actually come from Democrats or republicans, that i don't know...

    Besides the fact that many to most people in this country do NOT vote...so neither real dems or repubs.

    Does it really matter who pays more taxes? It's what's done with the taxes that's important. I'm just wondering how the libs/celebs/wheeler-dealers, etc. are going to do when they finally figure out that in this quest for "social justice" the taxes are finally going to drain their pockets as well. If the current situation continues we're all going to be piss-poor in the end. Then, where is additional funding going to come from to continue supporting all these social justice projects - or will the system just collapse?
