Numbers aren't exact but can be found.
The top 10% pay 65% of all taxes
The top 50% pay 96% of all taxes
The bottom 50% is paying a tiny bit of the taxes
I'm in no way top 10% hahaha but I am middle class as I think most of us on here are, sorry but I can't afford more...
I do support a flat tax system
Slyder, the top 50% make 96% of the income. The top 10% make 65% of all income. That is why they pay most of the taxes. When you take a look at wealth, the top 10% has like 90% of all wealth in the country.
They can pay more.
