IRS DATA GENIUS. What more PROOF do you need Mr. In Denial?


I hope you know yelling 'IRS DATA' without actually saying anything makes you look more like an ignoramous, This Data shows us tax rates. That is all.
Your appeal to authority with those editorials really goes to prove *no* points that your trying to make. It shows that this fellow seems to think rich people are being taxed enough already, but that doesn't really have much to do with socialism. Unless of course you think having tax rates similar to what we had during the 50's would make us socialist.

I'm not questioning the IRS data. I'm questioning the conclusions they have drawn (I'd say you, but you're essentially asking me to argue with a surrogate, presumably because you have no arguments of your own to make) which is basically an implied argument that taxes are just fine/raising them can resolve nothing. The REAL argument is if they are paying their fair share, some would say no, some would say yes - BUT! That has little to do with socialism.
This guys argument boils down to, 'if it isn't a flat-tax rate than it is more than your fare share.' not many would agree with that. (Obviously things like flat tax make sense from a 'common sense' approach. The mistake is to assume that common sense is always helpful. Common sense also would lead you to believe the earth is flat and the sun revolves around the earth.)

Just because you pay more taxes than some doesn't mean your paying a fair share already. If you think some dude making a blog post and talking about how he thinks tax rates are just fine or more than fair is proof of anything -- citing IRS/CBO data or otherwise, then be my guest.
