  • The top 10% of income earners earn closer to $100,00 per year, not $250,00.

    The top-earning 25 percent of taxpayers (AGI over $64,702) earned 68.2 percent of the nation's income, but they paid more than four out of every five dollars collected by the federal income tax (86.3 percent). The top 1 percent of taxpayers (AGI over $388,806) earned approximately 22.1 percent of the nation's income (as defined by AGI), yet paid 39.9 percent of all federal income taxes. That means the top 1 percent of tax returns paid about the same amount of federal individual income taxes as the bottom 95 percent of tax returns.

  • So 1% of the nation is taking care of 95% of the nation. Please tell me how this is fair?

    Because they are rich. EVERYONE deserves to have money. They need to share with those who do not have it. It is our right as Americans to be financially equally to everyone. And we shouldn't have to work to get it.


    Okay. I'm kidding. It isn't fair. It sucks rocks.
