I used to vote for the likes of these tools, when I was a duped dope.
“Personally, I would like to cross-examine Zients on his concept of “fair share.” Currently, the top one percent of taxpayers pay around 40% of all federal income taxes, which are the taxes that Zients referred to. I don’t think the IRS publishes figures for the top two percent, but it likely would comprise more than half of all federal income taxes–while, meanwhile, half of the population pays no income taxes at all. So, Mr. Zients, if 50% isn’t the top two percent’s “fair share,” what is? 60%? 70%? Is it the Obama administration’s conception of democracy that a tiny handful should bear the nation’s entire financial burden, and everyone else should be a free rider?”
