    They are very relevant, as others have noted. Where are your facts that back up your opinion that the rich have suffered more than the middle class?

    you tend to grasp facts that have no relevance to the point you are trying to make. for example, saying that the rich have become richer does not prove that the rich need to pay more and more taxes.

    no the claim is that the middle class suffers the most crippling taxes. that is nonsense and you haven't come close to proving it because you cannot define "crippling"

    what the FACTS show is that the richest few percent are the ONLY GROUP that pays a higher percentage of the income tax burden than their share of the income and the top 5% pay more than the rest of the country.

    The facts presented prove trickle down economics (tax breaks for the rich) have failed. What can you prove?
