And the Supreme Court is the end all and be all of what is correct? Tell that to Dred Scott. Heh. What are your thoughts on Roe v. Wade again?
Its just common sense. The government takes 25% of my income, and 10% of yours. Are we being treated equally? Hah! 25% from both of us.. We're getting there. $5,000 from both of us.. now we are being treated equally.
First of all, this is a fundamental misunderstanding of the way the current income taxes work. We both paid 0% on our first 7k of income, we both paid 15% on our next 24k of income. You happen to make, let's say 30k more, so you paid 28% on that income. Had I had your income, I would also have paid 28% of that 30k.
So yes, we're being treated equally.
