Uh, Nope. You're quite incorrect. But what's new?
There wouldn't be a 25% "difference in the actual rates" as you suggest. The top 10 percent and the middle class would be paying on different \$\$ amounts - so it's apples and oranges. Just like in your example they'd have to be paying different tax rates on the same amount of income - but that's not real life, is it!!
The top 10 percent pays 30%, the middle class pays 24%(if we're to take those numbers on faith) That means exactly what it suggests - the richest taxpayers only pay 6% more of their earnings than the middle class does on theirs (on average) The comparison between the \$\$ amounts paid is a completely separate matter.
Argue all you want that the richest shouldn't pay a higher rate, but don't try to convince others than the rates are other than what they are.
As they say, lies, damn lies and statistics:(
Apparently math isn't your strong suit...Seriously.

For example, if one pays a 2% tax rate and another pays a 1% tax rate, you have two "items":

One person pays ONLY a 1% higher tax rate (2-1) AND one pays a rate double of what the other pays (2/1).

"The top 10 percent pays 30%, the middle class pays 24%(if we're to take those numbers on faith) That means exactly what it suggests - the richest taxpayers only pay 6% more of their earnings than the middle class does on theirs (on average) The comparison between the \$\$ amounts paid is a completely separate matter."

A 30% tax burden is 25% higher than a 24% tax burden. Divide 30 by 1.25, what do you get? 24.

30 is 25% higher than 24. A 30% tax rate is 25% higher than a 24% tax rate.

"Argue all you want that the richest shouldn't pay a higher rate"

I don't.

More breaking news! Beounce has dropped a new album!!!!! Stop the world! It has been reported on the NATIONAL News! Now THAT'S important. Can you imagine? She KEPT IT A SECRET! Holy spit, Batman! What a woman! Let's all run out an buy it! NOW! I've not heard anything as important since Obama was elected. Whew! Beounce + Obama HAVE saved the country afterall. Wow! THAT was a close one.
See? As I see the world in a comedic light, you have now given me a new joke. A Columbus police officer pulls over a man for having a tag light out. He asks the man if he would consent to a search of his vehicle, which the man say "sure". The officer pulls out a CD case full of marijuana, and asks the man "What is this?" The man replies "that is my Beyonce CD, and inside it Beounce". Told ya I wasn't right in the head. lol

Why would I need links, when I can think for myself, rather than listen to the mindless babble of a complete doof? You should take a day off, sit in silence listening to classical music, and evaluate your OWN beliefs, rather than those you read on your little sites you visit. You may find out a lot about yourself that you didn't know. Unless, of course, you are already brainwashed beyond all recognition.

So far you've only offered rants about other posters in a childish petulant way, looking for more candy to sweeten your sour disposition.

I'll respond to you no more, as you offer nothing worthy of responding too.

THANK YOU! Just when I was beginning to believe there isn't a Santa Claus, you show up out of nowhere and give me the best Christmas gift I have ever gotten. Merry Christmas to you, and thank you for saving me from having to read anything you think you know. I'd send you a fruitcake, but you already fit the bill.

Buffett is actually very much in favor of fixing the income tax system so people like himself do pay a fair share. What he is not is stupid and will use every tax loophole he can find, just like his competition does.
He has spoken about this tax inequity many times and has encouraged the administration to do something about it. The comparison of what a rich man pays vs what his secretary pays came from Buffett. Buffett doesn't need or want his 15 minutes and could care less what people of your ilk think of him. You know very little about the man, your putdown statement 'coming from him' is just more of your warped political viewpoint. He is making the effort that very few people in his position would ever do. Ever heard the gods your worship the Koch brothers say such a thing, NO.
This capital gains argument is total BS, lots of folks income comes from capital gains like your alter ego Bills comes from McDonalds.
Your an idiot! The government had been trying to get Buffett to pay back taxers for since 2002 . The Feds claim he owes a Billion dollars in back taxes. Just look it up on the Web yourself if you don't believe my post. It was all over the news this last year. Sure he wants to pay his fair share, just as much as you and I want to pay 10,000 times our actual owed taxes. When are you ever going to realize that talk is cheap? Darn if you don't believe everything you hear. I still have that bridge for sale in Brooklyn.

Obamacare fix is only good for a year..........Michele says Obama is only good for a minute..........

"Of course, like every other exemption from Obamacare the latest fix is supposed to last only a year, raising the prospect that people will be kicked off their catastrophic coverage as soon as the 2014 election is safely in the political rear-view mirror. "

A panacea for demos up for re-election........

If you had read all those links in detail I provided; what word, other than speculation, would you use?
I did read them, and they are based on the same type of information gathering used in my posts supporting the rich paying more in taxes, by any measurement. You can't have it both ways or else your beliefs on the matter are based on a total double standard, no more, no less.

Fact - the "rich upper class" pay more taxes than the middle and lower classes.

Fact - business does not pay taxes.

Fact - Most every entity has problems with the current tax system.

Fact - Most people just continue to elect the same people to "represent" them.

Fact - These elected "representatives" will not change their ways.

Fact - You just don't want to pay any taxes, you want business to pay.

Fact - You can't state why the Fair Tax will not work.

Fact - We agree, scrap the whole current system.
