Fox News/Opinions and most of the Republican Party are vehemently opposed to the Progressive Taxation System, arguing that they pay more taxes than the bottom 60%............................or do they? People in the bottom 60% spend all of their income, which is sales taxable except for food. They also drive to work (non-deductible), paying $1.50 every day in gasoline tax, tolls, and various licenses and registration fees (all forms ot tax) their phone bill has numerous taxes charged. The list can go on and on. So, proportionately the bottom 60 pay as much or more tax than the top 1%. And the bottom 60 contribute 90% of the top 1%'s income through purchases. ARGUE YOUR WAY AROUND THIS ONE FOX!
