I like the idea of everybody paying a fair share, but MY idea of "everybody" is EVERYBODY. Currently, 47% of all workers pay ZERO tax, and many of them even get back more than they paid in.
Hey, Mr. Obama - look up the definition of "everybody" - and also "fair". Just because a person does not make $50K a year does not mean they should get away without paying ANY share of the burden. Even the poor, if they earn a living, should pay something. They benefit from the roads, schools and national defense. They should be vested in it. Even the poor, if they have a job, can afford $5-$10 a week. How do I know this? Because those same "poor" people smoke $5 a pack cigarettes, drink beer and wine, and have cellphones and computers.
Yes, EVERY worker can and should pay something. The word "everybody" means just that, Mr President.
