Let me give you a very rough example: We have 100 people

You have 98 people making \$100. Their tax rate is set at 50%.

You also have 2 people making \$10,000, their tax rate is set at 25%

In this example, 98% of the population makes little money and they are taxed at TWICE the rate of the top 2%. However, let's look at the total share of taxes:

We end up with \$9,900 in total tax revenue, with \$5,000 of that being paid by the top 2%. Oh my god, only 2% of the population is paying for OVER HALF of all taxes. That's totally unfair I guess we should lower their tax rate?

Numbers are very easily to manipulate, be careful. Obviously the real life situation is a little more complex than this, but this demonstrates how using the same statistical measure rush quoted there is misleading.

So are liberals.

Let me update your cute little socialist strawman example:

100 people are in a room.
50 of them work and 50 of them are worthless liberal leaches.
Of the 50 that are productive, 27 of them are not taxed at all.
The remaining 23 pay progressively higher taxes depending on their increased productivity.

Of the 23 who pay all the tax burden for the 77 "others,"
5 of them pay 95% of the bills of the entire 100.
The remaining 18 of the productive group pay the remaining 5% of the burden of the entire population of the 100.

Insert liberal "reasoning"---"Fair is fair, those 5 percenters earn more, dangit, it ain't fair that they don't pay more for those deserving 77 poor people.":rolleyes:

although one thing i don't like is he supports is bush's tax cuts for the wealthy. i don't say we should tax the rich more, but we should at least be taxing them the same as everyone else.

You are an idiot.

You do realise that the top 1% of earners pay 40% of all taxes don't you? How many more dollars do you want to take from those that work hard for them? I say tax the poor. They're the parasites suckling at the government welfare tit. Let them start contributing more.

He has obviously been listening to the media lies regarding spending. Any progressive income tax is unfair and a means to redistribute the wealth.
