    Ok, 1400 millionaires paid No Income Taxes. Since there are 65 million that didn't pay any FIT those 1400 would take that down to 64,998,600 others. Wonder if those 1400 not paying income taxes would be more than the 64,998,600 who didn't pay any either?

    yes, .6% of the millionaires and billionaires got off as scot free as obama's JOBS CZAR

    another interesting take on that pile of irs data released last week---if you tax america's millionaires and billionaires 100%, you won't make a dent

    IRS: 235,413 million-dollar earners - Jennifer Epstein - POLITICO.com

    social security, medicare, medicaid, pensions and other federal entitlements are sinking an additional 5.3 trillion dollars per year

    It's pretty simple, really. In order to pay for government you have to get a lot of the money from the few people who have all the money.

    "Tax rates on the richest Americans have plunged in recent years, and millionaires today pay tax rates that are 25 percent lower than they were in 1995. Meanwhile, income inequality is the worst its been since the 1920s, with the top 1 percent of Americans taking home 25 percent of the country’s total income. Just the richest 400 Americans hold more wealth than the bottom 50 percent of Americans combined, and the richest 10 percent of Americans control two-thirds of the country’s net worth."

    Let's repeat that again for dramatic effect: "Just the richest 400 Americans hold more wealth than the bottom 50 percent of Americans combined."

    Who says they're no longer an issue? Clearly Obama isn't as liberal as much as liberals thought he was. That doesn't mean they won't vote for, but there is certainly disappointment.

    "They're sitting on the money, they're using it for their own -- they're putting it someplace else with no interest in helping you with your life, with that money. We've allowed them to take that. That's not theirs, that's a national resource, that's ours. We all have this -- we all benefit from this or we all suffer as a result of not having it," Michael Moore told Laura Flanders of GRITtv.

    Do you think tax rates really matter more than the actual amounts collected? I would assume that you are going to school and the question is why are you doing that if not to better yourself and earn more money so that you can decide where to spend it and what charites to support. Why do you need the govt. to do it for you? I asked you before if you believe we need a 3.7 trillion dollar govt and you never answered. why is that?

    I further pointed out that over 65 million income earners aren't paying any FIT so tell me what their fair share is? You seem to hate rich people, I don't as that is what I always tried to become thus allowing me to need less of that so called govt. help and to spend my money on the charities that I support without deducting federal administrative costs?
