    rather its ne'er do wells who are paying less than 10% whining for the sake of whining.

    Judging others based on your own prejudices is not a substitute for evidence or a rational tax policy for 311 million people - the vast majority who have their income from wages and salary.

    That is clearly discriminatory.
    what is clearly discriminatory is a group of people paying 40% of the income tax while the bottom 50% pays less than 3% of the income tax

    You only yap about alleged discrimination when it means people who pay millions in taxes are not paying as much as you want to soak them for while you never complain about 50% of the people paying only 3% of the income tax yet they clearly use at LEAST half of direct government spending and they drive the voting for more and more and more spending

    the only ones with prejudices on this thread are you wealth stealers. You think its perfectly acceptable for the government to confiscate 600,000 out of a profit of a million

    I agree that what you point out is also discriminatory. What you continue to ignore is that I provided you at least eight reasons why we discriminate on that basis and have a progressive income tax structure.

    You call people IDIOTS and NEER DO WELLS even if they match your own income if they do not invest as you prefer they do. That is prejudice and the substitution of your own values for theirs.

    So not being able to disprove that those that get their income primarily from investments pay lower federal tax rate than the middle class making $50,000, you now seek to move the goalpost???

    most of which are based on a belief system I reject and on a craven political reality that there are more looters who can vote than net tax payers

    you are lying again

    the investors who pay an effective federal income tax rate are paying a much higher tax rate than people who make 50,000 a year

    That is clearly discriminatory.
    And just what risk was theer in your "income" ? In anyone's "income" ? Investment income is earned on risk. On income already taxed and exposed to risk. If you tax it more, then there are plenty of other places for it to go in this world, to still find risk/reward, but without your stupid liberal "fairness" BS.

    Liberals can take their class envy and shove it up their asses. When we start runnng out of OPM (other people's money) , I only hope to God that the liberal teat suckers are the first to feel the pain of their foolish foibles. That you feel the effect of your stupidity before I do. Maybe thein you will wake up, and get off you starving asses. So help me God, you will starve from lack of my money before my own kids do.
