The poor pay a much higher percentage of their income in total taxes than the rich.

If you HAVE to ask questions, YOU'RE CLEARLY CLUELESS...

Millionaires pay 4 times as much as the middle class in taxes on a percentage basis. CNBC wrote the following:

"According to new data from the IRS, people who make $1 million or more had an average tax rate of 20.4 percent in 2010. Tax filers who earned $30,000 to $50,000 paid an average rate of 4.8 percent, while those who made between $50,000 and $100,000 paid 7.7 percent. Those making under $30,000 had a negative effective rate, meaning they paid no federal income taxes after deductions and credits."

"Put another way, millionaires pay a rate that's more than four times that of the middle class."

GOOD TIMES....trashy lies....

"I will be at Sea-Tac. I will be landing at 8:50 AM. I will be at the Hertz counter at 9:15 AM."

Too bad, we're talking TOTAL TAXES, unless you NEED to pretend income taxes are all we pay ???

Are you really implying that only poor people pay sales and consumptive taxes? How dumb are you?

Or are you saying that its someone else's fault that the working poor that makes $25K per year spends more than they should on beer and smokes?

Don't frame your argument in terms of 'fairness'. Its clear you know nothing about whats fair. You seem to want the scales tipped in your favor and there is nothing fair about it.

In 2009 the poorest 40% of the country pay an average of 21% of their income in Federal, State, and local taxes. In the same year the top 1% averaged 24% if their income paid in just Federal income tax.

So while the poor definitely pay a higher percent of their income in local, state, and excise taxes, their total tax burden as a percent of income is lower than the middle class or rich.

I provided links to the sources and they are not my data. I am not surprised that you can't actually counter it.

Those with a negative rate not only did not pay FIT, they were given money.

Your point is always ignored or overlooked.

If only everyone worked the tax rates for everyone could be reduced a lot. It's the taxtakers (those living off the fat of the land on welfare) who cause taxes to be so high.

Continuing efforts to cut spending and reduce deficits have driven the Eurozone into its second recession in just four years, as its economy shrank for the second consecutive quarter. Struggling countries like Spain, Greece, Portugal, and Ireland are still pursuing deficit reduction to rein in their debt, cutting spending to the bone to do so. The spending cuts have driven unemployment to record levels and threatened the continent with a recession that became official during the last quarter, Bloomberg reports:
The euro-area economy was pushed into a recession for the second time in four years as trade slowed and government spending declined.
Gross domestic product in the 17-nation currency bloc slipped 0.1 percent in the third quarter from the previous three months, when it fell 0.2 percent, the European Union’s statistics office in Luxembourg said today, confirming an initial estimate published on Nov. 15.
Eurozone unemployment reached 26 percent in September. The youth unemployment rate has topped 50 percent and resulted in a “lost generation” for the continent’s young adults. Still, the pursuit of austerity continues.
Lawmakers around the world have ignored the European lesson, though. Australia’s growth slowed last quarter as its government pursued deficit reduction, and in the United States, the so-called “fiscal cliff” brought on by Republican-demanded spending cuts is threatening the country with a bigger austerity package than those that have been implemented in Europe, even with ample proof that the U.S.’s original preference toward stimulus was more effective than the austere European approach.
I didn't realize just how far up there you can actually stick your head!

Do you just like making stuff up? You said they had no money and you said they paid a higher percent of their income as taxes. I pointed out that was both false and contradictory.

I don't care what you meant because that was not what you wrote. Even if you meant they have no money after taxes (which they receive post tax, so that is not correct), that doesn't change that they pay a lower percent of their income as taxes then the rich.

If "they" have no money, "they" pay no taxes. Instead "they" receive money, collected by the government from taxpayers and distributed to "they". Welfare, in all its forms, is the mechanism. If "they" work part-time, or are working poor, "they" net money from the government in the form of EIC - the more irresponsible(more dependents) "they" are, the more money "they" qualify for.
