Why the whining about the wealthy?
From time to time one sees letters or op-ed columns crying about the wealthy not paying their fair share. However, the top 1 percent wage earners pay 36 percent of the income taxes; the top 5 percent, 58 percent; the top 10 percent, 70 percent. That leaves the remaining 90 percent of us wage earners to cover only 30 percent. What is the problem?
By the way, involuntary redistribution of wealth is a socialist policy and our illustrious president is big into that.
