    Then they should reduce all taxes to one dollar so the top wage earners only have to pay 95 cents.

    What is this argument? Do you want the top wage earners to have more than one vote?

    The top 5% earners pay more than the bottom 95% earners. The bottom 95% pays 40% in taxes.

    The top 1% pay 40% of taxes, the top 2-5% pay 20%; everybody else pays 40%.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    The bottom 50% pay nothing, so it's not, "everybody else".

    that is really stupid. the rich do well no matter what. its the poor who are fed and clothed under our system. Throughout most of history, they would starve

    The American Dream is alive and well. More and more people apparently do not know how to achieve it, but it is still there for those who have the desire and fortitude to go after it.
