Don't let the facts get in the way of your class warfare arguments. It turns out that the rich actually do pay more than "their fair share".
The nonpartisan Tax Policy Center has crunched the numbers and found that Warren Buffett and his secretary are the exception to the rule. For the most part, the wealthy pay a significantly higher percentage of their income in taxes than middle-income workers. The key numbers: this year those earning over $1 million will pay, on average, 29.1 percent on federal taxes. Those earning between $50,000 and $75,000 will pay 15 percent.
The problem isn't that the "rich" don't pay enough taxes; the problem is deficit spending and stagnant wages. Taxing the rich guy down the street more doesn't increase YOUR salary. People understand this and that's why the class warfare card is a perennial loser.
