4 responses to “Re: Mark Cuban”

  1. Mike says:

    “The amount of tax paid by those earning more than $1 million a year increased to $236 billion in 2005, up from $132 billion in 2003, the year of the tax cut. This was a 78% increase in taxes paid by millionaire households.”

    This is from the Cato report, the problem is that they are not paying more taxes as a % of income they are paying more taxes because they have increased there income by over 78%
    The wealthiest people are making more money and paying less in taxes as a total % of income. Cuban is right!

    Mike is absolutely correct.

    The blue-bloods want people to believe “Aww, poor me” when really they are paying less and less as a % of total income, but more of the tax bill as a result of that class getting filthy rich.
