    as most of us are, the base level, varying of course, but the Romney's etc are way past the base level of income needed to sustain your life...so comparing your taxes to theirs is idiotic nand everyone does it......unless you want to think you or I is his 'equal' somehow, but I think that's a misplaced 'equal', something capitalized on by the 15 forever....and no taxes have been paid on those profits either.

    and yes there is a calculation for lower income people where they/we/I pay little income tax...but we pay all the built in taxes on products and services and pay sales and property taxes, and fines if we don't.

    And right you are....

    This machine kills Fascists.
