progressive is the opposite of fair. 1. ONE rate, paid by all, no deductions, no exceptions, no exemptions. A REAL fair share. 2. No withholding. Pay your taxes on the way in to vote. 3. Every law applies to every person equally, period. No exceptions for skin color, elected status, NOTHING.

There is no reason a group of people who do nothing to contribute to a society just take from it should be able to control the way the govt works. It is insanity grossly out of line.

With the U.S.' deadline for filing income tax returns for 2012 come and gone, we thought it might be interesting to find out which Americans aren't really paying a fair share of all the income they earn in the form of income taxes.
