    Oh, I get it, they don't have earned income credits, any type of government assistance, or any other program that is paid for via taxation.

    What small amount they pay in sales tax, they get back and then some in EIC and assistance programs.

    My post has nothing to do with thinking I'll be 'rich' one day, I'm perfectly happy where I am monetarily, Thank you. It has to do with who carries the heaviest tax burden, dollar for dollar, and who actually uses the programs that those tax dollars pay for.

    If people who love to scream that the rich need to pay their 'fare share' stopped and looked at who actually uses those tax dollars, perhaps they may realize who is actually paying their fare share.

    Actually, if you really want to know the taxes taken out of a person earning between 0 and 100k are far more important to them than the taxes taken out of the people above that. Mitt romney gets 20 million a year, and if he gets taxed at thirty percent he comes home with 14 million per year. That is still 140 times as much as a person earning 100k per year without taxes taken out. So yes the money that the middle and poor class pays in taxes is far more valuable to them than the money the rich pay in taxes.

    Now... why would former Communists, those exposed to such a rot gut system do this?
    I know you are trying to make a point, but I don't know which one is it.

    The reason former commie countries have a flat tax is because it is what was "inherited" by the political class from the communists and in many former communist countries, the political class that was emerging under communism have become the leading class in today's politics. So of course they would maintain the same taxation.

    Don't get me wrong. I am not saying that one form of taxation is better than the other. After all, numerous nations outside of communism had the flat tax. It is however the communists that made the flat tax a staple mark of their society.

    Angry? Bitter? Me?

    My dear, I assure you I'm neither.

    Anyway, thank you for answering my question...you DO believe your own convoluted logic.

    Another example of your convoluted logic, eh?

    Because you THINK (or, I should say...FEEL) taxes taken from one person are more or less important to that person than the taxes taken from another person...you, somehow in that convoluted mind of yours, think you are correct.

    You are not.
