Depends on investments and how well they hide income as well I suppose but the point is most of you don't pay diddly doo. Most are below the threshold.

Everyone gets more back than they pay. You get a military that protects your nation's interests, you get a national bank that makes sure the money you earn is valuable, you get agencies that keep the nation’s infrastructure intact and safe for use...try paying for all that by yourself.

Yeah, that’s not accurate. The top ten percent pay 70 percent of the us’ total income tax revenue. And I would say, aw, that sucks for them, except it really doesn’t. They have more than enough left over to live incredibly comfortably, and those taxes still cost less than if they had to foot all the services the government provides on their own. So nah. Not bothered about them or anyone else paying taxes. You get more than you give.

So when you make your first million you are cool with giving 30% of it to your gestapo Govment to give to poor commenters like us? Many sources to prove you wrong!!! https://taxfoundation.org/summary-of-the-latest-federal-income-tax-data-2020-update/

Lots of numbers that are accurate and don’t support 90%.

Doesn’t touch on tax rates for the rich at all, therefore irrelevant.

Still doesn’t reach your 90% number for total taxes *paid*, and penalizing the way the poor are viewed because they take benefits *that only the poor need* creates a wildly inaccurate view of how taxes work. It’s just dishonest.

You are wrong. I just proved it. many times over. Research before posting bullshit.

Actually no, I’m not. You’ve proved that the rich pay a high percentage of the income taxes received - congrats. I agree. I also say that’s how things are supposed to work. Even with a flat tax rate, this would still be the case. Pull your head out of your ass and learn how to use Excel.

Can’t read due to firewall. But yeah, $1.4T in taxes, with $1.1T of it coming from the top 10%? That’s 80%. Not 90%.

Yes. Because that means I have $700k left and I suppose I can feed my family with that.

Your view of the government is preposterously hyperbolic. You need to watch fewer movies.

If you need SNAP, I’m more than happy to help fund it. And your roads, and military protection, and power grid, and schools, and courts, and food safety, and border patrol, and disaster relief, and health care, and and and.....because that’s what governments do.
