    Tax dollars being pooled while being controlled by politicians is a recipe for corruption. Money to a politician is like slop to a hog.

    Don't let facts get in the way‼️
    The U.S. tax system is progressive
    Another misconception about the U.S. tax code is that high-income Americans pay less in taxes because they benefit disproportionately from tax breaks, otherwise known as tax expenditures. While that may be true for certain individuals, in the aggregate, however, the U.S. tax code remains progressive — with higher-income taxpayers paying a larger share of their income in taxes — even after tax breaks have been taken into account.

    Major tax expenditures — such as lower rates on capital gains and dividends, deductions for charitable contributions, and deductions for state and local taxes—do tend to benefit high income taxpayers more than lower-income groups. The Congressional Budget Office estimates that the top quintile of taxpayers receive 51 percent — around $445 billion—of the value of major tax expenditures, while only 8 percent — around $70 billion — goes to the bottom twenty percent. However, even with substantial tax expenditures, the top one percent of American taxpayers still pay an effective tax rate of approximately 33.4%, on average, while the bottom 20 percent of the population pays an average of approximately 3.6%.

    The Tax Policy Center estimates that 69 percent of taxes collected in 2015 will come from those in the top quintile, or those earning an income above $138,265 annually. Within this group, the top one percent of income earners — those earning more than $709,166 in income per year — will contribute over a quarter of all federal revenues collected.

    Same here. I went in front of the county board and plead my case on how they were screwing me, with multiple comparable house listings and sale prices. They agreed, they lowered my taxes some, but not as much as they should have. Better than nothing I guess.

    If you're going to make political statements do it when you're still good.
