    Don't believe it happens if it makes you feel better. But those of us who argue for lower taxes know all too well that it does.

    Re: Let's put this one to bed. TAXES.

    Compared over the last 30 years how do the effective tax rates (federal government) today compare?


    Are the effective tax rates over the various income groups higher or lower then they were in the 80s 90s or 00's

    You do benifit though from the increased social stability that progressive tax rates, and social spending has provide the US over the last 70 years or so.

    I certainly gets annoying.
    That, of course, is another whole can of worms.

    But you don't need to be a libertarian to want lower taxes.

    prove that and prove that progressive tax rates cause that.

    I call total BS.

    America was pretty stable before we had this nonsense

    and tell me-what is to stop the rates going higher and higher and higher when those of us who pay most of the taxes cannot outvote those whose votes are bought by appeals to getting government goodies paid for by others

    They should tx the rich based on their characters. Maybe then you'd feel it was fair?

    I chatted with a guy who said there should be zero taxes. He claimed that people would pay up if anything went wrong in their community. I roundly defeated him in that argument. How naive can people be?

    you need to re-examine whatever course of study you are pursuing at that college. That makes no sense either.

    why are you so afraid of a tax system that prevents people like you voting up the rates of people like me without you having to pay any more taxes.

    we should all pay the same rate so if you vote for a higher tax rate-you have to pay more as well
