I'm middle aged, so I pay more than my "fair share", but it wasn't always this way and it probably won't stay this way. If you take the amount of money that the government spends and divide it by the number of people, that's each person's fair share. When I was 18, the amount of taxes that I paid was well below that and now I pay far more than that. I'm not really sure how it will balance out when I die.
