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.
