    stop fibbing. You don't pay a higher effective federal income tax rate than the vast majority of people in the top one percent

    Do ask that with a straight face or do you really not know after debating this for months now?

    You keep forgetting we all know that is simply not true. We've had over 400 rich whistle blowers petition Congress because their tax rates are lower than the middle class, and we have Romney's tax return.

    BFD-who cares-the vast majority of the top one percent pay a far higher effective income tax rates than any other group. some people in the top one percent for perhaps for one tax year (due to massive offset of losses) pay no income taxes. but that's an extremely rare group.

    so what exactly is the point of your claim? to justify jacking up the taxes of everyone in the top one percent?

    WOW FOUR HUNDRED DEM SLURPERS OUT OF SEVERAL MILLION PEOPLE

    and you are lying, people don't hit 15% effective rates until they are making over 200K

    that's not the middle class according to your beloved leader Obama

    that's the group he claims isn't paying enough income taxes

    Buffett's secretary is making several hundred K a year

    Middle class my ass

    It is a Big F Deal when it is YOU who accuse me of lying when I tell the truth. And I care about people lying about me.

    Get it straight that no matter how many million times you regurgitate the same old same old about those who have the most paying the most it convinces nobody here outside of your far right circle.

    What is the point of my claim? A nation which can have a sensible tax policy in a society where fairness and justice rules resulting in a sustainable society that we all can be proud of. Pretty radical hey?

    a sensible tax policy to get your dem allies elected? perhaps

    but the current tax policy only is guaranteed to keep the middle class demanding more government and creating more dependancy
