    Do you find this easier than addressing points?

    And yes, they are fairly different. As I said, they average somewhere less than 40%. You can't cut enough with cuts alone, and frankly, if a politiican tried, and got something passed, he'd be out of office next election.
    As posted, if it is 40% of the current labor force of 140 million is 56 million income earners not paying any taxes. Think those people can pay something? If so why go after the ones paying 38% of the taxes

    All your points have been addressed, suggest that you pay attention. Tell me how many people there are at 40% of income earners not paying any FIT and how much that would be even if it was $100 a year?

    Anomaly means deviation or departure from the normal. The normal is less than 40%.

    How much less since I already showed you what 40% means in numbers, over 56 million not paying any FIT even though they earn income
