Looked over some of the reports on the Tax Foundation website referenced in the chart in ChippewaPartner's post. Some interesting opinion in there.

One report that everyone should read - and why a flat tax should be implemented to ensure everyone has some skin in the game:
Tax Fairness Challenged By Rise Of Nonpayers

Today, the percentage of tax filers who pay no income taxes due to credits and deductions in the tax code has reached levels not seen since the income tax became a broadly applicable ďmass taxĒ in 1940, according to a new study by the Tax Foundation. This trend raises serious concerns about the equity of the U.S. tax system, the fiscal stability of the federal government, and the political implications of disconnecting millions of citizens from the primary means of funding government programs.

...When people perceive government to be cheaper than it really is, they will demand ever more of it because they either donít have a true sense of its cost or they assume that others will bear the cost.

It would be nice if someone that is mega rich would sue the federal Govt about the equality of the tax system.

And then, they also erroneously assume SOMEONE ELSE will pay off the massive debt that's growing, as a result of not having to have "any skin in the game".

The debt will come crashing down on everyone, and everyone will suffer from our national debt just like an entire household suffers when either parent bankrupts a household.

In fact, it's happening now with massive national debt resulting in lower wages, fewer jobs, higher food prices, etc. Money that could be going into wages and jobs is simply paying the interest on our national debt (paying for the follies of politicians past).

The bums are too ignorant or apathetic. A check is all they want.
