From Verum Serum:
The bottom 50% of earners pay $0 in Federal Income Taxes. ZERO.
The top 1% of earners pay 40.5% of taxes. Got that? Those evil rich people that make up 1% of the country pay for 40% of everything — national defense, entitlements, etc.
The top 5% pay 60.6% of taxes.
The top 10% pay 71.2% of taxes.
And so on.
The top 10% of earners in this country should get thank-you cards from everyone else, not disdain from the liberal politicians and media.
And let’s not forget how greedy our current leaders are when it comes to charitable giving. They market themselves as champions of the poor but they profit by keeping the poor down, and they don’t give out of their own pockets.
