This is probably the stupidest response I have seen in this thread thus far. Congratulations. I wish there were some sort of award I could present you with, but sadly, there isn't.ludin;1064220965]IE isn't not fair that I don't have what they have.
Making our economy more solvent for the present, and more importantly, for the future, has nothing to do with coveting. Learn to logic.
Does the price of oil affect you, personally? Do you buy and use plastic ****? Gas? Heat your house?ie the man is keeping me down by some hidden force that can't be seen or touched. yet they and all of the other evil rich people out there have this power.
Is it your opinion that it's poor people, or rich people, that control oil companies?

I don't have the link right now, but the numbers clearly show that, yes, the wealthy DO pay more total taxes than the rest....but it's far, far LESS of a percentage of total earnings.
In other words, everyone else SACRIFICES more of their total earnings to pay their tax bill than the wealthy.
