    They already pay taxes based on what they earn. They pay more than others because they earn more. If the top 10% already pay 70% of all federal income taxes then there can be no claim that they do not pay at least their fair share.

    It had no correlation to the discussion. You're bringing in medical examples.

    You're on here claiming people need a living wage, but when you're pressed to define it, you become mute. All you're doing is repeating what you've heard and you don't even understand it. We aren't talking about diabetes, which by the way I can talk intelligently about as my husband has had it since he was 9.

    Again, I need to remind you what the group pays as whole is meaningless because they pay taxes as individuals.

    No, not really, if it were not for those services, the rich probably wouldn't be rich.

    In my opinion? 1950's rates with little to no loopholes.

    The 2013 tax tables are below:

    Married Taxpayers Filing Jointly

    Head of Household

    Individual Taxpayers


    Married Taxpayers Filing Separate
    NO. Upper incomes are taxed too little.

    The so-called poor in America would actually be considered well off if you compare them with other countries so to even label them as "poor" is just socialist propaganda and caters to those who want to maintain the welfare state.

    What is Poverty in the United States: Air Conditioning, Cable TV and an Xbox

    In 2005, the typical household defined as poor by the government had a car and air conditioning. For entertainment, the household had two color televisions, cable or satellite TV, a DVD player, and a VCR. If there were children, especially boys, in the home, the family had a game system, such as an Xbox or a PlayStation. In the kitchen, the household had a refrigerator, an oven and stove, and a microwave. Other household conveniences included a clothes washer, clothes dryer, ceiling fans, a cordless phone, and a coffee maker.

    The home of the typical poor family was not overcrowded and was in good repair. In fact, the typical poor American had more living space than the average European. The typical poor American family was also able to obtain medical care when needed. By its own report, the typical family was not hungry and had sufficient funds during the past year to meet all essential needs.

    Poverty is relative, as well. Especially in a republic where means tested corporate welfare even has paid multi-million dollar bonuses to Persons who were nowhere near the poverty thresholds and could afford to hire entire departments to help them conform to rational choice theory or fill out corporate welfare forms in triplicate, if necessary.
