  •  You're not considering the meaning of BURDEN. (5+ / 0-)

    It's just part of a familiar phrase to you. The tax burden. In reality, who pays 70% of the labor burden in this country? Who is busting their ass to make sure the top 10% enjoy staying in the top 10%? If it's such a BURDEN to be in the top 10% why be so rich?

      The top 10% pay 70% of all income taxes. That's just a fact. I have no idea what else you are trying to convey here.

      Most of the top 10% is just like everyone else, has bills to pay, mortgage, job insecurity, etc.
