the rich pay more than they use
the top 5% pay more FIT than the rest of the country combined
where do you get the idea the rich don't pay taxes?
and I suspect (no one has challenged it yet) that the voters who say no-combined, pay less federal income taxes than anyone whom you call rich.
I honestly can't say. I never did payroll in 1935. That was 44 years before I was born.Originally Posted by TurtleDude
I wrote checks for payroll in 2007, 2008 and 2009. It was just as I described it. I didn't write a separate check to the Social Security Trust Fund. You will have to find somebody older than me to answer your second question.
I once had a conversation with an older gentleman that said that your Social Security Number was a bank account. The government kept records of how much money was in your account. It sounded like it used to be a lot like an IRA or 401(k).
Social Security is not a trust fund and anybody who believes that is living in the past and believing a lie told by a desperate politician from a brutal era who has been dead for almost 70 years.
He had to tell lies to calm everybody down and he was damn good at it.
I don't recall people themselves writing checks-rather its the employer. I have never written a check to the SS-its always been deducted from my paycheck
