    I used to earn between $85K to $31K. If you take about 23% out of your check ya dont have much except for paying off average to sub-par living expenses. If you take 40% of $300,000 you bet your ass you have money to live a very comfortable life. Just as long as you dont have children like the people on welfare and ruin everything.

    Taxes are included in your purchases, on duties, etc. that are quite apart from what you contribute off your paycheck.

    It's difficult to tell now just how long one American has to work to pay their share of the annual federal and state taxes because the trillions in debt have skewed the entire system, but there is no doubt that taxes have gone up post WWII in proportion to the average wage. Or do you think they are the same?

    Well politicians can be parasitic too

    Oh here is another handy dandy graph. This time I'm including all federal taxes: individual income, payroll, corporate income, excise, etc.



    And state and local income tax burden.

    The law of supply and demand is in play. When there are few jobs available and many people vying for those few jobs, income decreases. When we have full or near full employment, pay increases.

    This is a non-story. It's just the media trying to help Obama and Co. out with their "Corporations should start hiring" message they are pushing. Its really rather sad to watch.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Only you could argue that the worker's share of the national income falling to a record low is a "non-story".
