Interesting article from CNBC....

The rich do not pay the most taxes, they pay ALL the taxes.

I think that Ms. wells would benefit from a logic class. My middle income clients who send in big checks to the IRS every year would disagree with her.

The top 40% wage earners in this country hardly constitute "the rich". I fall into that class, and I do not feel very "rich".

If you have 99% of the money, you should pay 99% of the taxes.

Umm, this isn't the movie quotes thread, Ike.

There is a book entitled "How to Lie Using Statistics". It is written by Darrell Huff. The author of the article posted on CNBC appears to be an avid reader of this book.
