    None of those are unemployed, we have a working population today of 139 million and 47% of those people pay zero in FIT. Stop buying what other liberals tell you. Get the facts.

    That addresses the number of working people in this country. If a student is working then they are included, if not they aren't.

    Seriously, this is foreign to you? The fact is that the low income earners - those that live paycheck to paycheck - pay a higher percentage of their income on all taxes than the wealthy do.

    Again, those people who pay no federal income taxes have enough deductions to reduce their taxable income to zero. Here is the tax table for 2011:



    Married Filing Jointly Married Filing Separately Single Head of Household
    Marginal Tax Brackets Marginal Tax Brackets Marginal Tax Brackets Marginal Tax Brackets
    Tax Rate Over But Not Over Tax Rate Over But Not Over Tax Rate Over But Not Over Tax Rate Over But Not Over
    10.0% $0 $17,000 10.0% $0 $8,500 10.0% $0 $8,500 10.0% $0 $12,150
    15.0% $17,000 $69,000 15.0% $8,500 $34,500 15.0% $8,500 $34,500 15.0% $12,150 $46,250
    25.0% $69,000 $139,350 25.0% $34,500 $69,675 25.0% $34,500 $83,600 25.0% $46,250 $119,400
    28.0% $139,350 $212,300 28.0% $69,675 $106,150 28.0% $83,600 $174,400 28.0% $119,400 $193,350
    33.0% $212,300 $379,150 33.0% $106,150 $189,575 33.0% $174,400 $379,150 33.0% $193,350 $379,150
    35.0% $379,150 - 35.0% $189,575 - 35.0% $379,150 - 35.0% $379,150 -
    Note: Last law to change rates was the Jobs and Growth Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2003.

    Learn how to use bls.gov and get the facts before making a post. BLS counts income earning workers that are full time and that number totals today a little over 139 million, 47% of that number pays zero in FIT. That is the reality that liberals like you want to ignore

    And let me remind you that you called that "Socialist." But we have 47% of workers not paying tax because of Bush's tax cuts which makes him a Socialist for passing Socialist taxes; which makes you a Socialist for voting for a Socialist president and supporting his Socialist policies, ipso facto.

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Tax Day is a dreaded deadline for millions, but for nearly half of U.S. households it's simply somebody else's problem.

    About 47 percent will pay no federal income taxes at all for 2009. Either their incomes were too low, or they qualified for enough credits, deductions and exemptions to eliminate their liability. That's according to projections by the Tax Policy Center, a Washington research organization.
