Class-Warfare seems to be a hip ideology that has no basis, in reality. The wealthy earn their money—for the most part—just like other Americans do, through hard work and determination. Obama says they don’t pay their fair share. He says he pays fewer taxes than his secretary does and furthermore, has found several democratic donors with secretaries in the same situation. Well, it could be said that the Democrats need to start paying taxes, because his hit-man Mr. Buffet owes back taxes he is fighting to avoid paying. So, let’s get this straight:
Now that we’ve cleared that up, let’s think about what is your fair share? Over a ten-year period taxing all those making more $250-thousand a year would bring in $700-billion. If they tax those making less than $250-thousand annually, over the same period, it would accrue the government $3-trillion. There are 49-percent who collect some form of “entitlement” but pay no taxes. What is the fair share, here?
Forty-nine percent pay nothing. The wealthy pay between 25-percent and 50-percent, and the middle-class pay between 7 and 10-percent, so what’s fair? We have 49-percent of the population who pay only tax on gas, groceries, phone bills, etc. and pay nothing into the programs that they, alone, can actually use. There is another 51-percent who pay taxes that pay for the programs that these people use and they, too, pay gas, groceries, tax on phones, etc. However, they are paying a federal tax which is a considerably larger sum of money.
A fair share would demand that those who never pay taxes, to pay taxes. The percentage of income would be the same straight across the board, but Obama could care less what “is” fair. His intention is to divide and conquer and nothing more. If you truly believe that the wealthy are not paying their fair share, when the tax man cometh—and he will cometh—don’t be surprised that the government decided $3-trillion from middle-class was a fair share.
