"The "Rich" make up 75% of income taxes in the U.S. but they own 90% of the wealth... the middle class has to make up the missing 15% and are overtaxed."
Jerry, you need to stop listening to liberal propaganda. Wealth =/= Income. The top tax bracket ("the rich") earn about 20% of the income (not 90%), and pay something like 40% of the taxes.
The 90% figure refers to the value of the capital they own, ie, businesses, stocks etc. It's not like they have that much spending money (or anything close to it). Capital isn`t something you can just tax, nor does it directly improve the quality of your life. If they tried to liquidate all that wealth (to pay a tax, for example), the value of it would drop to next to nothing. After all, who would be left with enough money to buy it at it`s current value?
