Best comment section post...

I don't know how this works, but the most read post on this blog has been this post about the best blog post ever... I'm guessing it's linked somewhere on some odd website and people show up by accident... nevertheless,

JD sent me this the other day, and in the same vain, I think this has got to be in the running for best post in a comment section...

If someone is a billionaire, taxing them a million dollars in income tax would result in .1% effective rate. A number of these millionaires pay taxes well below the rate middle-class taxpayers pay, because they get all of their income from carried interest and cap gains. Every single wage earner in America, including those who don't make enough to pay income taxes, pays payroll taxes. There is no 50% of America who don't pay taxes, that is a dumb, hateful class-warfare motto that is meaningless.

Just a few little facts, don't want to get in the way of your slavish whining about the poorest people in the US. Oh, little point, due to Republican economic policies, social mobility is at its lowest level in American history meaning that none of you will ever be amongst the group of wealthy people that you worship, no matter how hard you work. Instead, you will die as poor and dumb as you are now, constantly blaming those who have nothing instead of those who have everything.

And so will your kids. And your grandkids. Hell, pass a sales tax, make the tax system even more regressive (always pretending that the level of taxes paid by the richest in this country AREN'T the lowest they've been in the last 70+ years), screw yourself and your kids over even more. I'm sure you'll make the richest folks in America happy (except they'll be stuck in a country with a constantly worsening work-force, who get hungrier and hungrier and hungrier every year).

You are all idiots. Angry, dumb children.
