Now come on, in reality …. those numbers are amazing low, when you consider that less then 1% of our population earn 1 million or more.
It's human nature to say .. sure tax someone else as long as it's not me … and seeing over 99% of the population makes under 1 million dollars per year, those numbers are very low.
I've always been one of the few conservatives that have said over and over, I'm in favor of letting all the 2010 tax cuts that were extended end. But only if they let them all end, for everyone.
Well I could be convinced for a nominal rate hike on the so called rich, I'm even more in favor of making the 45% that pay nothing in federal income tax, pay something I don't care if it's only 5 dollars a week. We have to have all people have a dog in the hunt. When you pay nothing, then you have no reason to worry about the deficit, or our debt, or for that matter anything the government does.
So while most liberals are so concerned with 7.8 million people that make 1 million or more I'm wondering why there isn't more concern over the 70 million people that contribute nothing in the way of federal income tax.
