For 2018, households in the top 20% will have income of about $150,000 or more and 52% of total income, about the same as in 2017. But they will pay about 87% of income taxes, up from about 84% last year.

Looks like your the minority on who cares about the top percent. bob

They should prob pay more.
Lets talk about how America has been suckered into voting for Trump. Lets talk about how many cabinet members have either quit, or fired or under indictment. hahahaha
Lets talk about how the republican party is going down in 2018 and 2020.

Lets finally admit how the republican party no longer represents regular people, but corporations instead.

Suckered. bob, you the bobbettes are a card carrying members of that club.

congrats.

Markster - "They should pay more" ??? How old are you, 15? That's the

Lets talk about delusion that can't even acknowledge the facts. It's what we deal with, small brains and big mouths.

a flat tax would be FAIR. Bc fair has a real definition, AND that can't be argued with emotions no matter how much you scream. Lol 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 101 days ago -

markie, do you really believe that people making $150,000. per year are rich? Why should they pay your portion of your taxes?

Why are you a mod? Big mouths w/single minded opinions have no place in moderating an otherwise civil discussion. Must be an ego thing.

Feel free to go ice yourself. Take that silly old dragon w/you

It?s trumps economy....weren?t those tax cuts good enough??

No!...They are temporary for you and me. Permanent for Corporations. Why is that cool?

Your post had nothing to do with the topic. LOL

Neither did yours...and your a mod...why?

LOL....... you do understand that tax laws can be changed? Don't you think the next time a Democrat is in office he/she isn't going to tax EVERYONE to the hilt?

Taxes will go up for you, me, and the corporations. 

the Markster --- 101 days ago -

LOL....... you do understand that tax laws can be changed?

I do... Thats why I stated the top % should pay more. Then the fireworks started. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 101 days ago -

The top percent DO pay more. So there's that. Lmao 

Prolix Raconteur --- 101 days ago -

No!...They are temporary for you and me.

I'll try to make this as simple as possible. They are for 10 YEARS!!! (slightly more than "temporary" which is your Rachel Maddow talking point). And Pelosi already stated if the Dems take the house back in 2018 they're going to work on dismantling the new tax code.

It was never going to last 10 years anyway. As soon as some dems get back in control they'll be taxing you an I like crazy. It's their M.O.

Mark likes paying high taxes. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 101 days ago -

"Then the fireworks started"




NO, they started when you went off topic, accused people of being "suckered" and insulted people. Maybe you should learn how to make a comment without insulting people with comments that don't even apply to topics. 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 101 days ago -

Prolix, you have to earn to pay taxes. He's not worried. 

Prolix Raconteur --- 101 days ago -

LOL I guess EBT cards and "disability" payments aren't affected.. 

the Markster --- 101 days ago -

As soon as some dems get back in control they'll be taxing you an I like crazy. It's their M.O.

Or the top %. The redistribution of wealth needs to go back to the middle class. Trickle down is BS and has proven to be so.
Hopefully PR can get her money back on that crystal ball.

As to what "Mark likes",,,,your clueless. 

jackass --- 101 days ago -

But why gripe now? I thought the stable genius got it right? Emp is doubting it...none of us are billionaires so we live in the present. How can this be??? 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 101 days ago -

Can you claim disability if you've never worked?

FYI 

Joe Blow --- 101 days ago -

I don't know if your statistics are factual but of course it is fair. If the top 20% are grabbing all the income, they deserve to pay the FN taxes.

Oh wait, I forgot you would rather make those that have nothing IE: the poor pay. 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 101 days ago -

Mark likes paying high taxes.

You have to earn a certain level of income before you pay taxes.

I can't imagine he's ever paid taxes. 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 101 days ago -

They are...... and you know it. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 101 days ago -

"I don't know if your statistics are factual but of course it is fair. If the top 20% are grabbing all the income"




See, this where the delusion is. DEFINE "grabbing?"

You mean earning, working, and doing a job? Or for the employers, RISKING money by starting a business? What? Bc "grabbing" sounds like robbing a bank, lol.

People are free to get rich if they so desire and can make it happen. They didn't get that way playing on FB all day...or working at Mickey D's when they could have gone to community college almost free to better themselves.


Flat tax is fair. Try not to cry. 

jackass --- 101 days ago -

I really can?t imagine you have paid much either...unless the ticket scalping industry has taken off.

NO. Only someone without a grasp of the income inequality in this nation would ask such a stupid question.

Let's take a look at how the corporate executives get paid. They have overly inflated salaries in relation to the AVERAGE of ALL who work below them. They then get millions in bonuses while everyone below rarely gest a raise these days.

So. They are the ones with the education and leadership experience that delivers results. 

jackass --- 101 days ago -

Then they should be fine to pay what trump thinks they should, right? Didn?t the tax cut give them enough of a break? I saw all the cheering going on...what?s wrong now? 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 101 days ago -

I pay quarterly.

Ticket scalping? LOL.........

OR maybe someone who isn?t using the proper terminology (grabbing insinuates anything BUT earnings, lol) and is uber emo needs to calm down.

Corporate execs are greedy. Life is hard. Start your own Corp and pay your janitors the same as managers. Then get back with us. K? 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 101 days ago -

LOL.......... 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 101 days ago -

...without a grasp of the income inequality in this nation ...

So you believe everyone should be paid the same regardless of education, experience, talent and work ethic? 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 101 days ago -

Start your own Corp

LOL, right. He can't even start a lawn mower. 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 101 days ago -

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA

What an ignorant thing to reply with. Not surprised, considering the source. Two key words bob...(Income inequality)
Google it. 

Butterbean --- 101 days ago -

A much better look at who pays what:

Who pays taxes

This data is from 2012 and the recession prior. Compare it to todays stuff.
