Nine Things The Rich Don't Want You To Know About Taxes

ILLUSTRATION: berkleyillustration.etsy.com
I was going to write an article on this, but while researching the topic, I found an extremely good article about it.
  1. Poor Americans do pay taxes.
  2. The wealthiest Americans don’t carry the burden.
  3. In fact, the wealthy are paying less taxes.
  4. Many of the very richest pay no current income taxes at all.
  5. And (surprise!) since Reagan, only the wealthy have gained significant income.
  6. When it comes to corporations, the story is much the same—less taxes.
  7. Some corporate tax breaks destroy jobs.
  8. Republicans like taxes too.
  9. Other countries do it better.
I urge our readers to go to this article:

Sounds like you favor redistribution of wealth- from the poor to the rich.

I'm not saying the rich need to give their money away. I am saying they need to pay a tax rate. They actually pay a lower tax rate than middle class and poor people. I am saying corporations need to pay taxes. Not receive welfare.
