1. 8500 millionaires paid a lower effective tax rate than me, and I am among the

poorest of the poor these days. If I were making what I was before the "recession", over 33k millionaires paid less than my effective tax rate then.

It is time to EAT THEM.

3. 99% 99%! 99%!!!

"99%!" should be the rallying cry for all true progressives.

"99%!" is not just who we are.

It is the rate at which all millionaires should be taxed.

I, for one, am not happy with the notion that the rich should pay "the same rate" as me.

I think the rich should pay MUCH MORE of their income in taxes than I do!

99%! seems to me like the right rate to tax millionaires!!

6. Near Zero .... there might be a handful but

 

some 22K+ might pay a lower effective tax rate. But I bet all of them paid more than I.
