The Truth About Taxes in The US

Here is a chart that I am guessing Mitt Romney does not want people to see. It shows that the everyone in the USA is paying their fair share, and in fact taxes as a whole are not very progressive in this country. This might be why when he goes around talking about tax cuts, he only talks about cutting taxes for those not in the “47%” which means making our system even less progressive and tilted even more toward the top.

The chart shows that the top 1% earn a a little over 20% of the income and pay a little over 20% of the taxes. It takes in to account all taxes including your local and state which no one likes to talk about.
