The bill getting discussed addresses Federal income taxes. Who pays most of that? Well the bottom 50% of earners pay less than 3% of it. Many paying none at all and quite a few receiving money back and not paying in with earned income tax credits.
The top 10% of earners pay about 70% or so of the taxes. Is that fair? is that their fair share? They also pay MORE SALES TAX, MORE PROPERTY TAX, MORE PAYROLL TAX, MORE OF ALMOST EVERY TYPE OF CONSUMER TAX APPLICABLE, Yes, Virginia, they do. Why, you say? Because they earn more, buy bigger SUV's, houses, send their kids to the expensive schools, and more expensive everything else. They use the same amount of public utilities per person, roads, bridges, etc. And pay for most of it.
I do not. I am not wealthy like that., However, it makes no difference if they have tax breaks, mucho capitals gains to lower their effective tax, etc, SO DO I, I PAY THE SAME CAPITAL GAINS TAX ON MINE, AND I AM NOT IN THE top 10%, FAIR IS FAIR for capital gains taxes.
I just don't make it a habit of envying ANYONE, particular a group of people who shoulder roughly 70% of the federal income tax burden while half of America pays almost none. It makes no difference how much of their "wealth" it amounts to, Marxist fans.
That's like the car salesman asking you how much you have in your checking account before he shows you the car that you are going to pay for with a typical car loan. SURE he wants to know. SURE he wants it. Why don't you just give it to him since he says he has nothing and is poor, Marxists? Isn't charging a different rich customer more(like price gouging) than everyone else because you think you can get it from them being a prick? Well, I have news for you, taxing a rich person more for the same public services is behaving like a prick too.
Come on say it - "why should you worry about the big bad vicious rich multimillionaires and billionaires that would kill you in a minute, you need to be selfish and only worry about yourself, like us liberals"
Well, a fine mess that has gotten America in, continue being selfish, and think of no one but yourself at your own peril. And the back and forth Congress bought by the promise of other people's money will continue and the national debt and deficit will get worse and worse.
