    Please do.

    We wait in great anticipation of the facts and figures from you.
    the figures have been posted here

    the top 5% pay more of the FIT burden this decade than in any time in history

    the top one percent (it went down slightly with the 08 recession)pay about 40% of the FIT-which is the most the top 1 percent has paid

    (since the FIT applied to "everyone" (LOL)

    Pbrauer's comment was idiotic

    those who go into the teaching major are generally the bottom of the barrel academically.
    Do you think you are the equal to the Pope in the vatican who can pontificate and his word is accepted as gospel Truth? So lets see you back up your mouth with the facts.

    YOU CANNOT DO IT.

    Don't forget the 40%+ that pay no income taxes

    Those figures say NOTHING about the supposed difference between the 91% tax rated cited by many and your claim of a far different effective rate that was actually paid. YOU HAVE NEVER PRESENTED ANYTHING TO SUPPORT YOUR CLAIM.

    NEVER.

    So can you do it now for all of us to see or is this just another case of your mouth writing checks that the rest of you cannot cash with actual evidence?

    Silly question - I know. You have never been able to do it and will not be able to do it now.

    There is no death tax and you yourself admitted it in the ECONOMICS section. There is instead an ESTATE TAX on rich estates inherited by others.

    so can you deny this after I posted citations to a study showing how many teachers are at the bottom of the classes

    I realize it must hurt but smart people generally dont become public school teachers

    So why do top U.S. college students have so little interest in teaching careers compared with their counterparts in the world's best-performing nations

    It's lazy children like Paris Hilton who benefit from it. Remeber, spouses don't ever pay it. Only children raised with gigantic silver spoons in their mouths pay it.
    The government has no right to that money the deceased paid the taxes before he died. That is double taxation

    You mean the representatives that the unions bought? Why aren't public service union pay and benefits put to a vote of the people that pay their salaries? What are you afraid of?
