    Asking someone to hunt down the source of your own flawed numbers is not a good practice.

    Seeing as various estimates project revenues to fall anywhere between 30 and 40 billion, around 7 to 10 days.

    Your effective tax rate is simply your tax paid divided by your gross income. That is what you paid divided by what you made.

    ie: You paid $20,000 and your gross income was $120,000 your EFFECTIVE tax rate is ~16%

    Your "tax bracket" is not your effective tax.

    The issue I have with the story that came out about Obama's secretary is that they used his Effective tax rate and her Tax Bracket when they reported the story. Apples and Oranges...

    Like i said, just a stepping stone for Barry to confiscate all the wealth he can. Anyone who votes for this man is either an idiot or a Marxist.

    Warren really doesn't pay income tax. He already paid income tax on the money he's investing quite a while ago...he's basically only paying a dividend tax... or capital gains.
    Of course he's for the Buffett rule, it doesn't effect him.

    You should be unabashedely ashamed of a post like that.

    That you are not is indicative of the cancer amongst us.

    7-10 days. Out of a total of over 3700. Oh yeah, this really counts

    Ron White nailed it.

    Yes. Yes I would have to pay more. As would EVERYONE else. Our country is in massive debt and I am willing to pay my share. I will always put the interests of the United States ahead of my own. I am not that selfish. I have no problem admitting that.

There are also plenty who don't pay anything at all as a result of the EITC and other credits.

    But I think it's safe to say that NO middle class American is paying a 30% tax rate. That would be mathematically impossible given that the 28% bracket doesn't start until you have $140k in income (married filing jointly).
    And yet Obama is pushing that the middle class does. Are you saying he is full of ****?
