    How are your taxes unfair compared to the working class?

    You have benefited from the temporary tax cuts so long, you think you are entitled to them forever don't you? Such dependency is not healthy.

    I love the wealth stealer mentality

    I should pay no more taxes than you. afterall I don't use any more services than you do

    its the parasites who have become dependent on others paying inflated amounts of taxes so the parasites can get all the government they want without coughing up the bucks

    If you are as wealthy as you like to claim, you already do pay a lesser percentage of your total income in taxes than I do, and you whine that you want more and more breaks.

    stop the lying, that crap has been debunked constantly and is also based on the pathetic BS that percentages count more than actual tax dollars.

    You cannot possibly figure my state taxes compared to yours and since I live in a state with a massive income tax you are Full of it. My overall federal tax rate is close to 30%, yours is no where near that. I posted the proof last night on what the various income groups pay

    This year, households making more than $1 million will pay an average of 29.1 percent of their income in federal taxes, including income taxes, payroll taxes and other taxes, according to the Tax Policy Center, a Washington think tank.
    Households making between $50,000 and $75,000 will pay an average of 15 percent 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 percent of their income in federal taxes. Households making between $20,000 and $30,000 will pay 5.7 percent.
    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

    You are ignoring the lesser tax rates you received on your inheritance and investments.

    Nope, dividends are taxed twice, Inheritance is paid by the estate (ie my father) just as I will pay that abomination when I die which is a surcharge upon what I paid in income taxes

    and I pay far more dollars than you do and I get nothing in return beyond what you get

    You are a freeloader compared to me-people like me help pay for some of your share

    It's always easy to think SOMEONE ELSE should pay higher taxes.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.
