This is only talking about Federal tax. There is also a state tax, a city tax, a property tax, a car tax, taxes in the phone bill, taxes in the cable bill, taxes in the gas bill, the federal government gets 45 cents for from every gallon of gas (three times what the oil companies get in profit), and there are other taxes. You add them all up and you are asking the 'rich' to pay 60 percent or more of their incomes to the government so the government can pay for cowboy poetry and teaching Russian prostitutes in the Ukraine to use condoms.

Liberals want the "rich" to pay their fair share, but have a) no idea what "fair share" means b) have no idea how much the "rich" already pay.
