I found this tax graph interesting. The AVERAGE is 17.80%...so in theory, if everyone paid a flat 18%, wouldn't we end up with the same amount - yet it would be FAIR. Why should some pay way more than others, and call that 'fair' when it certainly isn't? 18% of 1 million is way more than 18% of 20,000.
Making more money does not take away any money from those earning less. And I often see those earning less, and on welfare, with nice cell phones, large flat-screen TV, cable, internet, driving large vehicles that are fairly new. The 'poor'? Hardly. Did you know you can buy lobster tails with food stamps? (lone star card here in TX). That, and gift baskets containing food. I'm just like "WHAT!??!"
