Something is wrong with our tax system when the rich pay less then 15 % and those who make under 50,000 pay almost 35 %.

I certainly agree with you there!!! Between BP and GE I would think the average citizen would wake up and realize that there is a game going on at our expense. We ought to set fire to the current tax code and go to a simple graduated flat tax with NO (yes I said NO) deductions (I own a home & RV, have 5 kids, and give money to charity) to take the pay backs and back room deals out of the hands of the most corrupt group of thieves & cheats in the country (70% of our "Representatives" in Washington). The free market worked wonderfully for over a hundred years and the more the government gets involved with the economy the worse it gets.
If we would stop paying people to grow this crop or that or worse not to farm at all while printing money which is a tax no one votes on because it makes the dollars we already have worth less.......
Don't get me started!!!! I could go on and on but I don't have an Ivy League education so I am ignorant and need to be cared for. I am just a high school dropout who worked his butt off for 35 years to take care of my family with no help from the government at all. NOW.... I am soon to be considered RICH and my taxes may soon go up because only 52% of the income in the country is from the private sector the rest is handed out by our imperious government.........
See it is not good to get me started
