I'm sorry that you're political philosophy (GREED) is at odds with the historical progressive tax policy of our country.
Typical liberal tactic... Demonize anyone who doesn't go along in lockstep with the liberal philosophy.
Sorry, but I don't subscribe to your liberal political philosophy (THE PHILOSOPHY OF FOOLS). (See, I can do the same thing to you).
The reason 48% of US households pay no income tax is because they don't have any income to speak of. Maybe if the rich and greedy didn't hoard all the fucking money, and paid their employees a fair wage or created the jobs they promised in return for the tax cuts, a greater percentage of households would pay federal income tax.
In September, the percentage of families designated as "working poor" climbed to the highest level since 1959 - 14.3%. So 47 million Americans are living in poverty, while working and another 15% (48 million are unemployed). So, that's 30% of your 48% who don't pay federal income tax.
What would you like them to pay it out of? Blood?
If it were up to you and the rest of the liberal / Democrat / socialists, there would be no millionaires. Once you got the government to confiscate all their income, everyone would be $40,000-aires.
Oh, and the economy would be completely destroyed.
Just admit it. It is not acceptable for people to amass over $1 million in wealth.
Even if you took all the income of every citizen who earned more than $1 million, it STILL wouldn't be enough to satiate the appetite of the liberal Democrat socialists in Washington DC.
