Half of Americand dont pay tax because thats the way the tax structure is set up. http://usgovinfo.about.com/od/incometax ... ysmost.htm

Back when the US demarcates were raising hell about Bush only wanting to give tax breaks to the wealthy it was total BS. You can’t give a tax break to someone who pays absolutely NOTHING. What’s even worse is that 30% (more or less) actually get more back at the end of the year than they paid in. That means they profit from the tax system. You never hear the media talk about this and most on the left are so excited to be getting the free handout that they act like they don’t know any better.
obama and the left are a farce.

Don't know what happened to my post above, but half of the message was obliterated! :???:

Do you know that 60% of Singaporean wage earners do not pay any income tax either?
