47% of Americans pay no Federal income taxes.

Government payouts—including Social Security, Medicare and unemployment insurance—make up more than a third of total wages and salaries of the U.S. population, a record figure that will only increase if action isn’t taken before the majority of Baby Boomers enter retirement. [Source]

  1. I know someone who is really low income. Single mother with two dependents. She received over $6,000 in earned income credit this tax time. That’s a lot of dough. There are millions like her. Add this up people!
    Now do not get me wrong. She really needs this money badly. However, I wish we could find a way to help people like her find work that at least pays rent, food, and other necessary expenses. This is a sad state of affairs.
    With EIC, we have been redistributing the wealth for many many years. Still I am happy to help, but this is just one of the many things that is strapping us.

  2. Unfortunately, too many people are looking for the magic spell that makes everything wonderful all the time for everyone. BO et. al. are touting taxing-the-rich as the magic spell. What a surprise: It’s a lie.

  3. Just pass the FairTax, and all this BS goes away, along with the hideous IRS Gestapo.

    Seems like a no-brainer to me.


  4. hmmm oddly there was no income tax in this country until the 1940’s so how in the heck did the usa exist for almost 200 years without an income tax? not to mention supposedly the bill to pass an income tax was never fully ratified by the house and senate.

  5. i was being sarcastic before the depression there was almost no unemployment the 1890’s had some economic problems and then the crash in 1929 but to continue the current brain dead spending of the obama regime may invite a disaster so horrific that the living may envy the dead.

  6. I realize this is a late comment, but I thought this article that discusses this and several related topics is interesting. It starts with a critique of a Tweet by pastor Rick Warren before moving on to other related issues…
