First things first: please post a link to where that map originated. I searched the Tax Foundation's web site, and I could not find it anywhere.

It would be interesting to see what the map would look like if retirees were removed from the equation.


Retirees pay taxes on SS benefits. Any poll or MSM commentary that tries to explain the 47% using Retires, are full of BS.

PS, You can thank Clinton for taxing Seniors and their SS benefits. ;\) You are forced to pay into it and taxed when you collect.

They may have income taxes withheld, but if it's their sole source of income, once the 1040 is filled out they get it all back. It's a fact that many retirees do NOT pay income tax at the end of the day; however, the retirees are not the problem.

So... remove the retirees from the equation, and I'll bet the percentages for the states are somewhat different.

Not only that but I found out from a friend the disabled also have to pay taxes on SS and Medicare.

I'd like to see a breakdown of the "47%" by ethnicity.

I wonder if that would have any influence on why some states are "red" in this graph?
