  •  1/2 of Americans pay ZERO taxes (0+ / 0-)

    In America, only the upper middle class and the rich pay any income taxes. The middle and below pay ZERO taxes. 4 in 10 pay negative taxes.

    People who earn $60,000 pay almost nothing in taxes... certainly less than 17% -- the 30% is a complete fabrication.

      I just checked my return. I will not divuge my income, but it's well below 60K. Of the federal income tax tax withheld, I'm getting about half back as a refund. I also pay state and city income taxes. Your comment is just plain wrong.

      Do your own research before you regurgitate talking points.  See, greedy corporatists have figured out that spewing official-sounding malarky works politically because enough of you tax-hating sociopathic twits are too lazy to figure out they're lying to you.

      It's 'redistribution' whether it happens before or after the money is made and whether it goes up to a small group or down to a larger one.
