excerpt: “With more than half the country paying no federal taxes, it's an easy position to insist the only fair thing is to make the top two percent income earners in the country pay more to cover the cost of government.”
First, that may make sense to you, but it doesn’t to me. On the surface, it looks like there’s a whole lot of people not paying any taxes who should be paying taxes. No one wants to pay any taxes, but it’s pretty obvious that we all have to pay some taxes.
Second, please enlighten us with the source of your statement that half the country is paying no federal taxes. I had not heard that before and if true, it deserves a lot more attention.
