This wonderful tshirt is aimed at those who are curious as to where their free stuff comes from. It doesn’t grow on trees and it doesn’t come from the Obama’s pocket. It comes directly from the 1% of Americans; the ones the left are constantly slamming with taxes and things. It seems they despise the people who earn a lot of money – although when it comes to political campaigns they don’t seem to mind what people earn as long as some of it comes their way!
Here are some stats you may not be so familiar with:
- The top 10% pays 53.3% of all federal taxes.
- The top 10% pay 68% of all federal income taxes.
- The top 1% pays 24% of all federal taxes.
- The top 1% pays 35% of all federal income taxes.
So now you know! And while the left will continue to argue that the top 10% should pay more taxes, they fail to report that they already pay the majority of taxes.
The Federalist Papers Project reports:
All the free stuff that these people get is paid for by someone. It does not magically grow on trees or just show up on your bank account. Whatever has been given by the government was forcibly taken from someone else.
Kimberly Morin reports the left is constantly slamming those in the 1% – people making around $300,000 per year and up – because they despise people who earn a lot of money.
Of course, they complain about these people who work hard and earn money but they never provide the fact that these people also pay the majority of taxes.
The 1% have always paid the majority of federal income taxes but they ALSO pay the majority of all taxes!
So while Democrats continue to argue that the ‘rich’ should pay more in taxes, they neglect to report that the ‘rich’ already pay the MAJORITY of taxes.
And when you look at who the ‘rich’ are – the top 10% includes people who make around $100,000 a year and up. Hardly a lot of money in some places like New York City, Boston, or San Francisco.
Unfortunately, the left can never be honest about taxes because it would be a complete buzzkill to their ‘take more money from the rich’ b.s.
