No Country Leans On Upper Income Earners As Much As The US
In our country it isn't that we don't tax the upper income deciles, it's that by and large we don't tax our middle class like other nations do. that's why we raise less as a % of GDP in revenue than they do.
and before you start bringing it up, that's counting both payroll and income taxes
What we need is not a system that tries to take from one at the expense of another, or raise ones' burden to lower anothers'. What we need is a tax system that is simple and sane, instead of our current spaggetti mess.
