    The Progressives downfall was the Day they came into existence. Obviously you have no clue as to the economics in this Country. When you get past the failed Keynesian Economics with NY LA and CHIC and all those major 76 US cities with economies. Come and see me when you can step up to the plate with some stats and not that Conjecture you throw out there from that Democratic Underground and WH talking points.

    The tax cuts given to you and the other wealthy that was supposed to have produced jobs and didn't, required the country to borrow from SS, and you you expect to walk away from your obligations without repayment of your debts.

    Better think again!

    U were saying?


    But are the rich really taxed less than secretaries? Here’s a fact check by the Associated Press.

    Stephen Ohlemacher reports for the AP, Sept. 20, 2011:

    The data tell a different story. On average, the wealthiest people in America pay a lot more taxes than the middle class or the poor, according to private and government data. They pay at a higher rate, and as a group, they contribute a much larger share of the overall taxes collected by the federal government.

    There may be individual millionaires who pay taxes at rates lower than middle-income workers. In 2009, 1,470 households filed tax returns with incomes above $1 million yet paid no federal income tax, according to the Internal Revenue Service. That, however, was less than 1 percent of the nearly 237,000 returns with incomes above $1 million.

    [...] This year, households making more than $1 million will pay an average of 29.1% of their income in federal taxes, including income taxes and payroll taxes, according to the Tax Policy Center, a Washington think tank.

    Households making between $50,000 and $75,000 will pay 15% of their income in federal taxes. Lower-income households will pay less. For example, households making between $40,000 and $50,000 will pay an average of 12.5% of their income in federal taxes. Households making between $20,000 and $30,000 will pay 5.7%.

    The latest IRS figures are a few years older — and limited to federal income taxes — but show much the same thing. In 2009, taxpayers who made $1 million or more paid on average 24.4 percent of their income in federal income taxes, according to the IRS. Those making $100,000 to $125,000 paid on average 9.9 percent in federal income taxes. Those making $50,000 to $60,000 paid an average of 6.3 percent.

    Obama’s claim hinges on the fact that, for high-income families and individuals, investment income is often taxed at a lower rate than wages. The top tax rate for dividends and capital gains is 15%. The top marginal tax rate for wages is 35%, though that is reserved for taxable income above $379,150.

    With tax rates that high, why do so many people pay at lower rates? Because the tax code is riddled with more than $1 trillion in deductions, exemptions and credits, and they benefit people at every income level, according to data from the nonpartisan Joint Committee on Taxation, Congress’ official scorekeeper on revenue issues.

    The Tax Policy Center estimates that 46% of households, mostly low- and medium-income households, will pay no federal income taxes this year. Most, however, will pay other taxes, including Social Security payroll taxes......snip~

    I guess you cannot understand the difference between rates and amounts and relative burden

    For example If a dinner for ten costs 1000 dollars and I pay 500 dollars and the other 9 pay an equal proportion of that 500 remaining dollars and the cost of the meal goes to 500 and I pay 300 dollars and the others split the additional 200, my actual payments went down by more dollars than they do but I am now paying 60% of the bill rather than 50% of the bill and you will whine about that
