What does "Pay Your Fair Share" Mean?

Posted on 07/17/2012 10:28:29 AM PDT by Why So Serious

According to the BLS using the 2006 and 2009 tax tables. In 2009 people making $100k or more earned 48.12% of the taxable income and paid 74.68% of the income tax. People making $99,999 or less earned 51.88% of all taxable dollars and paid 25.33% of the income tax collected. That sounds like it is already beyond fair for those making less than $100k.

Now let's look at 2006 ... in 2006 people earning more than $100k earned 50.63% of every dollar earned and paid 73.63% of all income taxes paid. In 2006 the people earning $100k and less you earned 49.38% of all dollars earned and paid 26.37% of all income tax.

Summary ... 2006 earners of $100k or more made 50.63% and paid 73.63%, versus 2009 earners of $100k or more made 48.12% and paid 74.63% [earnings drop but they still paid a bigger % of the taxes]

2006 earners of less than $100k made 49.38% and paid 26.37, versus 2009 when they made 51.61% and paid 25.33% [their income went up as a % and their taxes fell as a %]

Does that seem fair?

It means if you already actually pay taxes, you're going to pay more to the people who don't.

I don’t want the government to be the overseer of sharing.

The job of overseeing sharing is the job of moms and kindergarten teachers.

Pay your fair share means I am going to steal as much of what you have as I can. The Obama Administration believe they are the only people who can determine your fair share. And that they can take it by force. And if you want to keep your own money you are greedy, immoral and racist. If you want to steal other peoples money you are good and virtuous.

“Fair Share” = “When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in society, they create for themselves, in the course of time, a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it.” - Frédéric Bastiat

Tax the poor so they pay their fair share as well.

What does "Pay Your Fair Share" Mean?The citizen in the Fascist State is no longer a selfish individual who has the anti-social right of rebelling against any law of the Collectivity. The Fascist State with its corporative conception puts men and their possibilities into productive work and interprets for them the duties they have to fulfill. Benito Mussolini

My definition of 'fair share' is for everyone to pay the same amount. Not the same rate, like a flat tax, but the same amount, say $5000 per family. Everybody pays, and if you don't have it, you do volunteer work to pay your fair share. Anything that taxes some more than others is progressive.

Our mistake has been moving the 'center' to the left.
