    Saying folks that do not make as much are jealous is just a weak cop out for saying I got nothing in reguards to the rich paying their fair share. That is it.

    since the top one percent pay almost 40% of the INCOME tax and ALL the death tax but only make 22% of the income and certainly don't have all the wealth when they die what exactly is your definition of a fair share?

    I'd start with either one percent of the income tax (the lowest objective limit) to 22% (the highest objective limit)

    But if I WERE average, I would answer no.
    You are VERY average in certain catagories... arrogance, for one.
