In this enlightened age of equality, where even a Harvard Law graduate can become president, does it seem right to you that honest, hardworking job-creators have to pay a whopping 35% income tax, but the lazy, shiftless poor don’t pay anything at all? Heck no, it’s not right! But, thanks to Obama and his liberal congress, this is exactly what we have.
In fact, 47% of Americans don’t pay any income tax whatsoever. On the other hand, the top 1% of Americans, most of whom aren’t even “rich” in the traditional sense, pay 38.9% to Uncle Sam, all by themselves. But wait, it gets better: A full 97.01% of taxes are paid by the top 50%. And the Democrats wonder why we’re in a recession! Duh!
My fellow Americans, this is NOT what the founding fathers would have wanted. In order to get America back on track, we need to have a flat tax, where everyone pays the same percentage in income taxes. And we should cap it at 10%, just like tithing.
