the top 1% actually pay 40% of all federal income taxes. That obviously is not fair and it obviously wastes money by taking it from the people who know how to spend it best and giving it to the people who know how to spend it worst.

No, 1% of one-million is more than 1% of fifty-thousand.

This doesn't deal with rates, it deals with the actual amount of money paid by bracket, compared to the # of returns filed and the share of overall income.

we know there is a problem of fundamental unfairness when the top 1% pay 40% all federal income tax and 50% of most state taxes. And this is not to mention how this slows the economy by taking investment capital and using it for welfare entitlements.

The top 1% laugh at you for your concern, but nobody pays tax rates. Effectively, ALL 1% pay less federal taxes than you.

too stupid as always. The IRS tells us they get 40% of all the income tax they collect from the top1%. Do you understand?

Do you see why we say a liberal will be stupid? Things a child can understand a liberal cant.

YES, and 1% of one-million is more than 1% of 50k.
