    What a stupid comment! Why would I send in more, if those at the top are paying less of a percentage of their total income than I am.

    Then why don't you got to the IRS data referenced and prove the site wrong? You have no interest in the truth, just your biased, partisan beliefs. You have no problem with liberals making you look foolish.

    IRS says they aren't and if you care so much about the revenue going to the govt, then where is that civic duty you seem to believe is so important. You ought to be paying more.

    So they say and of course you buy it. Guess the IRS disagrees as does the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center

    Data compiled by the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center show households pulling in more than $1 million pay about 29.1 percent of their income in federal taxes. By contrast, households making between $50,000 and $75,000 pay about 15 percent.
    My question then is why do you believe anything this administration tells you and ignore actual IRS Data?

    this silly line is something a Republican must have come up with at a right wing think tank session and it got rave "attaboys" as it was sent up the flagpole.

    Its stupid and senseless and is just smoke and mirrors. But the righties keep using it as if it is something really really clever that puts the nail in progressive taxation requests. Its funny really.

    Did you actually read the entire Politifact statement? Doubt it because it supports what I have been saying. You are confusing taxes as a percentage of income with taxes paid as a percentage of total taxes? Nothing refutes the article I posted which again causes me to ask the question as to why you believe a word the Obama Administration tells you?

    You buy a Fox News article.

    And I doubt you ever even heard of Tax Policy Center much less looked at their analysis.

    Interesting how someone who works in the state govt. that has a 10.9% unemployment and the large city that is a warzone with the highest unemployment of any major city in the country believes he has any credibility on economic issues.
