    everyone with a shred of honesty understands the term federal income tax is the tax levied on income

    and here is another slap on the populist nonsense you spew

    the top 5% pay far more taxes than they use in government services while the bottom half uses far more government services than they pay in combined taxes to the federal government

    you are diverting once again. I stated a fact-the top 5% paid more of the FEDERAL INCOME TAX burden than the bottom 95%

    Your rush fixation is stupid and has no relevance to any of my posts

    CORRECT. Payroll taxes are levied on income. When you do your own taxes, you will learn this.

    Prove it. Cite evidence showing that the TOTAL income tax burden, which includes all taxes on income, including payroll taxes, and available deductions and subsidies, is greater for the upper 5% than the lower 95%.

    We're all waiting for your cited evidence, as opposed to more of your hero (rush)'s opinions. . .

    But yet you are woefully impotent to provide any quotes from me showing any evasions. Telling indeed that you have utterly failed.

    I merely state what is obvious to most people and let them judge if I am accurate or not. Since no one has criticized my statements, I take that as affirmation that they agree with my charges
