So America collects $4.05 trillion in taxes every year. And we have 330 million citizens.

4,050,000,000,000 / 330,000,000 = 12272.73

So each citizen, man, woman, child, infant, geezer has to pay $12,272.73 in taxes every year. If you have a wife and 2 kids that's $49,090.92 for all four of you.

Elon Musk would love this tax plan, so would the former Rush Limbaugh.

Sound fair?

Those ports have taxes and fees our government once lived solely off of.

There was no income tax....only import taxes.

Let that sink in for a bit.

Just sounds like they are spending way too much money, no matter who they are.

How about we cut the government in 1/2. Instead of paying out 5 trillion dollars we only pay out 2 1/2 trillion, while taking in over 3 trillion? That would put us on a surplus and eventually get US out of debt. Wont happen because the Dumbocrooks want to destroy this country so they can think that they can turn it Socialist. If no one is getting paid for the months it takes to get a country running, there will be a lot of very pissed off people looking for Joe Biden voters...

But the dregs don't pay ANY taxes, they simply get paid to stay home and not work. And what about the thousands of illegals now getting payouts with no tax burden? Better get out your slide rule and cipher again.

Leftocrats alway be looking for more ways to rob people of their hard-earned money.

How about "NO"?

How about all those scumbag poor people who don't work but get big tax refunds pay their fair share, and give it back?

Let millionaires and billionaires pay very high taxes. They do not need all the luxury items they have.

If only I could get off that lightly. I haven't paid that little in taxes in at least 20 years, probably more like thirty years.

Why should they? Did they "steal" their money from the have nots, or did they earn it?

Otis Mayfield That makes no sense whatsover. For one thing, you are going to tax kids who don't work 12K per year.

Well, they're spending way more than that. The op was about how much they're taxing us.

60% of our Government's annual budget is spent giving citizens money in the form of Social Security, Medicaid, Medicare, food stamps, child care, school lunches, welfare programs, and etc. This includes the administration of said money payments which is usually about â…” of ever dollar given.

They wouldn't need to tax that much if they spent less, right?

Seems like common sense to me
Congress doesn't really seem to make the connection between taxes and spending. To them, taxes are for manipulating society. And spending is for getting votes. Never the twain shall meet.
