Okay fine, how much should they pay? 50%? 60%? 90%?Let me explain something to all you dumb a#$, right wing parrots who keep repeating the lines you have learned from the likes of Limbaugh, Fox Nooze and the rest of the right wing echo chamber concerning TAXES-Taxes are not something which rich people have to pay to "take care" of folks who do not work, or do not want to work, which is one of your favorite LIES. Taxes are what you pay in order to maintain the very system which your greedy and stupid @sse$ are taking advantage of, or TRYING to put yourselves in position to take advantage of. Income tax rates are currently at the lowest rates since there has BEEN an income tax in this country, and yet you people continue to LIE about being over-taxed. How in hell do you right wing freaks think that you can live here in America, take advantage of the greatest system of economic opportunity on the planet and not have to pay a damned thing, or a PITTANCE, into that system? A system which, by the way, as built with blood, sweat and dollars before you morons were ever heard of? It was built by people who understood what SHARED SACRIFICE means; that NO ONE built a fortune without any help whatsoever from WITHOUT. This is true no matter how much you folks wish that it were not. You people sit with your thumbs up your southern orifices while American corporations make BILLIONS by sucking off the Government teet; snatching up no-bid, cost-plus guarantee laden Government contracts and say nothing, yet when some black or brown single mother gets 10 dollars more than she should have on her county check, you hypocrites want to hang her up by her thumbs. If you hate people getting free sh!t by way of Government handouts, how about these staunchly Republican Southern farmers who make more off of the Government buying up their unsold crops than they do from SELLING them?
If you don't like paying taxes for participating in this American system, why don't you simply stop USING all the things which this tax money pays for? In other words, no insurance for your money, no use of OUR roads, bridges, airways, public education including state universities, the socialist 911 emergency system and many, many more things which you fools take for granted without even considering how all these things came about. If not, shut up about YOUR tax money going to "take care" of other people.
It is not cool to be greedy, mean and ignorant, regardless of what your right wing entertainment leaders keep telling you.
Tell me, how much????
BTW, government programs like food stamps, LIHEAP, section 8 are paid for by working people paying taxes, so, we are taking care of other people with our taxes.
Wanting to keep money that you earned is not being greedy. Government wanting more of MY money to give to OTHER PEOPLE who don't want to work is being greedy.
But, you are probably one of those OTHER PEOPLE who suck of the government teat.
