    how much does the average millionaire pay in federal income taxes?

    well that is that much more than 47% of the US population

    does anyone think that the millionaire uses more federal services than those 47 percent?

    looks like we know who isn't paying their share and its not the millionaire

    and you have been funded by tax dollars your entire life
    and apdst was a net taxpayer most of his life

    he also doesn't support the government getting bigger and bigger--you do

    he doesn't support a tax system that promotes more government

    you do

    i am much smarter than you which is obvious both by the general stupidity of your posts and your profession which attracts the bottom of the barrel. You continually lie about me because you cannot handle the fact I don't agree with your nonsense

    You may have posted it already and I didn't see it but, what's the source you are using here?

    I don't think tax rates are too low for those that make less than $1 million dollars. I think they are too low on those making more than $1 million dollars who we have giving a tax break of $93,000 each year since 2003, since it falls on all of us making less than $1 million dollars to pick up their share.

    If you want to continue to donate to millionaires, then you can send in more money. They'll take, just like they've been taking it each year since 2003.

    what government benefits do those millionaires get that you do not? how much did you pay in FIT last year?
