I always find it interesting that there is a sect of people who are always crying "tax the rich". Um, last time I checked it's the "rich" who pay most of the taxes.
The top 50% pay 94% of all taxes. The top 1% pay 33.7%, and the top 5% pay 57% of all the taxes.
What does disturb me is guys who are uber rich paying only 15% or less. The loop holes need to be closed.
I only see about 60% of my paycheck. And that is before, real estate, gas, and sales taxes. When it's all said and done, I will see about 50% of what I earn. I think most of us pay more than our fair share. Where we should concentrate our venom is towards the waste that goes on within our government.
