In an online discussion with a few folks, I saw the oft used expression, “the rich don’t pay their fair share. Haven’t in decades!”
Here’s a graphic to help out a little. (Click on the image to bring it full size and very readable.)
I guess those who object to these annoying facts hear about those evil rich who “dodge” paying taxes—the ones portrayed over and over as having accounts in the Caymen Islands, chauffeurs for their chauffeurs and so on.
It’s simple. Fix the tax code. Put in a flat tax or better the Fair Tax. Class warfare gets boring and I ain’t rich.
