    Zero federal income taxes- yeah, it's quite common.

    However, that's not "no taxes."

    another problem with this moronic poll is we don't know how hard either works. the guy getting sodomized by the IRS might well work 80 hours a week in an incredibly risky high stress job while the freeloader might make 30K a year modeling thongs

    I didn't see your answer. Which one did you choose? Remember. There are no wrong answers. Only wrong questions.

    true, but some people are paying (and I use that term loosely) say taxes on smokes and drinks from money given to them by the government

    I'm not aware that I said it was.

    If you're just going to dump me straight into the situation no questions asked, sure. I'd take Option B) every time.

    However, if we're talking about a situation resulting from the culmination of decades of my own personal labor, I wouldn't bust my ass trying to make two hundred and fifty thousand dollars a year in the first place if I knew that I could simply stop at one hundred and fifty thousand dollars a year (or whichever income establishes the jumping off point for the 50% tax bracket in question) and still possess a take home income more or less comparable to what the larger salary would provide.

    The effort simply wouldn't be worth the reward.

    I tend not to dignify moronic polls with an answer-

    when I tried cases I'd answer like this

    The party is without knowledge sufficient to address the factual assertions contained in Paragraph # 3 and therefore denies the same for want of knowledge

    You are free to take that into consideration as well. I would guess the guy making $30,000 has a much easier job than the guy making $250,000. Wouldn't you think so? People are still choosing option B. It kind of makes you wonder if money incentivizes people to work harder. If you use this poll as a guide, it seems that money does incentivize people to work harder.
