USA makes top earners pay unfair share of taxes -
Top 10% of wealth earners in USA pay 35% more than their fair share of taxes.  This is the highest rate of unfairness among similar nations.
The statistics show the rich in the USA pay more of a fair share than the rich in other nations.

No Country Leans on Upper-Income Households as Much as U.S.

by Scott A. Hodge (edited by Boomer)

March 21, 2011

During my recent testimony before the Senate Budget Committee (found here), I cited an OECD statistic that the U.S. has the most progressive income tax system among industrialized nations.[1]  This prompted one Senator to point out that if the richest 10% of taxpayers earn the most of any OECD country, shouldn't it make sense that they bear the largest tax burden of any country?  

The answer can be found in the OECD table below. This table shows the share of taxes paid by the richest 10 percent of households, the share of all market income earned by that group, and the ratio of what that 10 percent of households pays in taxes versus what they earn as a share of the nation's income.

The first column shows that the top 10 percent of households in the U.S. pays 45.1 percent of all income taxes (both personal income and payroll taxes combined) in the country.  Italy is the only other country in which the top 10 percent of households pays more than 40 percent of the income tax burden (42.2%). Meanwhile, the average tax burden for the top decile of households in OECD countries is 31.6 percent.

By contrast, column #2 shows that the richest decile in America earned 33.5 percent of the market income in the country in 2005 - the year in which this snapshot was taken, but little has changed since then. But, a few other countries do have a greater or similar concentration of income as does the U.S. For example, the OECD table shows that the wealthiest decile of households in Italy and Poland earn a greater share of their country's market income than do our "rich" - 35.8 percent and 33.9 percent respectively - while the share of income earned by the top decile of households in the U.K. is about on par with those in the U.S. at 32.3 percent.

The table then adjusts for the underlying allocation of income by showing the ratio of income taxes paid to the share of income earned by the top decile in each country. The ratio for U.S. households is 1.35, far greater than the ratio of taxes to income in any other country. Even in the three countries with a comparable distribution of income, the ratio of taxes to income was less, 1.18 in Italy, 0.84 in Poland, and 1.20 in the U.K.

Interestingly, countries with top personal income tax rates that are higher than in the U.S., such as Germany, France, or Sweden, have ratios that are closer to 1 to 1. Meaning, the share of the tax burden paid by the richest decile in those countries is roughly equal to their share of the nation's income. By contrast, we prefer to have the wealthiest households in this country pay a share of the tax burden that is one-third greater than their share of the nation's income.

I Am A Tea Partier

    I am convinced that progressive democrats, USA leftists and most of the liberal media have no idea who I am or what I believe.

    I am convinced socialist democrats are so out of touch with reality they think I am being sent to tea party groupings by some secret conspiracy or evil commentators and conservative news sources.

    I think "liberals" are so trapped up in their own Marxist mind warps they cannot understand why anyone would oppose big government and big government spending.

   I think progressives are so accustomed to deceiving people, and using the government for their own purposes, they still do not understand average USA citizens.

   I am just an average person who prefers individual freedom to big government control.

   I understand that government can have value, but that not all things done by governments are valuable.

   I know that governments are best when they are closer to the people governed, and more easily tracked and replaced by local voters.  

   I know enough about USA history, our founding fathers and their documents that I want a return to the Constitution - with limited central government, more governing by state and local governments, and  less restraints by government on individuals.

   I do not want serial lying politicians to promise a paradise of social justice while gilding their own nests and the nests of their special interest stake holders.

   The USA federal government is too big, too remote from citizens and exceedingly dangerous to the nations prosperity and individual freedom.

   The central, federal government, needs to focus on national security and encouraging interstate commerce - not on taking care of me - or
 spreading other's wealth to me - or mine to others.

   Hitler, Stalin, and other big government statists proved that big central governments destroy nations and people.  The big government statists in the USA are already beginning to insist - as did Hitler, Stalin and countless other statist governments - those opposed to big government policies are heartless, traitors or terrorists. 

   I want freedom. I want a free press. I want politicians who are not  liars - or deceivers. I want a smaller central government with less power, spending less, so that even bad federal politicians cannot destroy the USA.

   I hope this helps my "liberal" friends. I suspect you will continue to insist I am a mindless, selfish robot and potential terrorist spurred on by some secret right wing conspiracy - or simply misled by fair and balanced news sources or commentators opposed to big government socialism.
 


Let's settle the Obama birth certificate issue -
 

Obama may or may not have been born in the USA. 
   There is some evidence for each position.  We have fetusers who know - for sure, but without proof - that the Obama fetus became a baby in Hawaii.  We have others who would just like to see the valid Obama certificate.
   If Obama would just produce a valid birth certificate this divisive issue would be put to bed. 
   Donald Trump
Wants To See Obama's Birth Certificate.  On "The View". link below you can watch Trump call for the birth certificate. Demand your Congressmen ask for the Obama's Birth Certificate.  If there is one, the divisiveness is over.  If there is none he is not qualified to be the President of the United States.

New Tax For Using The Toilet -
   USA politicians are considering taxing your trips to the bathroom - if you use toilet paper.  Politicians know federal officials could help cities like Omaha pay for multibillion-dollar sewer projects if they just taxed those rich users of toilet paper, with a small 10-cent federal tax on every roll of toilet paper you buy.  If you think this is a joke, see Mayor Pushes Washington For Federal Toilet Paper Tax...

War on Israel Grows as Libyan Kinetic Action Continues and Obama asks Israel to be nice - March 24 -
Muslim barbarians in Gaza shoot rockets into Israel, drawing reprisals...  Israel gets .tanks aimed at Hamas facility.  Egypt Air wipes Israel off the map -- literally...  and the US warns Israel, saying Israel needs to get in front of Muslim Barbarians action, which Obama calls a 'wave of populism'...

State Governments To Control Wanton Killing of Human Life in the Womb -

Dozens of bills are advancing through statehouses nationwide that will curtail the wave of killings of human life in the womb - based upon a woman's temporary feelings.  They will put common sense checks into those who perform and encourage abortions on a whim.

The tactics vary: mandatory sonograms so women can see the life they think they want to destroy and pro-life counseling, sweeping limits on forcing others to pay for abortions, Supreme Court approved limits on abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy. To abortion-rights activists, they add up to the biggest political threat since the Roe v. Wade decision of 1973 that legalized abortions in the first 13 weeks of pregnancy.  For a "liberal" spin on this story by AP see http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/U/US_ANTI_ABORTION_SURGE?SITE=AP&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT&CTIME=2011-03-24-03-01-41
