Tax Payers – a snapshot

Posted by Rob Longenecker on October 8th, 2009

The top 20 percent of earners

makes about 53 percent of the income in America, but

pays 91 percent of the income tax.

The top 1 percent pays 36 percent.

The IRS says the bottom half of earners pays less than 3 percent.

If you’re in the bottom 50% of earners you have no reason to oppose higher taxes, do you?

How about when 60% of the folks pay no taxes?

How about when 70% of people pay no taxes?

The percentage has been growing every decade.

We might want to pay attention to who gets elected next time.

If you work and pay taxes, the current trend is against you.

    “If you work and pay taxes, the current trend is against you.”

    For those of you who work and pay taxes (my guess would be nearly all of Tucker’s customer’s), your biggest concern right now should be a public option in the healthcare bill. Those 70% who pay no taxes have no reason to oppose public option healthcare reform- it’s free insurance on your dime.

    Additionally, as gun owners, you should be VERY afraid of the government becoming more involved in the medical forum. I am a medical student who is expected to ask every patient if they have firearms in the home, how many, and where they are located in the house. I’m then expected to document this information in the chart. Many of the “elite” minds in academic medicine think that gun ownership is a public health concern which belongs in the medical forum.
