"Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence." - Dr. Carl Sagan
I proved it was income tax and it was obviously federal
and you continue to play games with average median MARGINAL tax rate
when someone makes millions and millions their marginal and effective rate is almost the same. someone making it just into the 25% marginal rate is paying NO WHERE NEAR AN EFFECTIVE INCOME TAX rate of 25% because SO LITTLE OF THEIR INCOME IS TAXED at that TOP RATE.
the entire purpose of this thread was for the envious to whine that Romney doesn't pay as much taxes as the parasite mentality claims he should. and we have shown that he pays a far higher income tax rate than most people-higher than the middle class for example
Now you're not even talking about state income tax??State taxes are mostly regressive. For example, sales, property, unemployment, disability, etc. That means that the higher your income, the lower the percentage of that income you pay in those kinds of taxes. By the time you get up to Romney territory, it is like 0.0001% of your income or something.
If you're not going to believe information I posted from the Tax Policy Center, I don't know what to say. Oh, wait. How about a link? Romney was talking about his Federal effective tax rate. No one knows what their Federal/State/Local/Sales Tax/Property Tax/Unemployment/Etc/Etc rate is. No one.No. Again, the median effective tax rate in the US is 27%. You appear to be thinking of the median FEDERAL effective tax rate. That is much lower. The reason is that state taxes are regressive, federal taxes are more progressive. So the median person mostly pays state taxes.
Thank you, Quazi!
You know what dude. I've said all these things to you like 10 times already. You're just doing that thing where you intentionally play an idiot to irritate me. I'm done replying to you again.
