37. Can't find it, can you?
How much in taxes is really paid by the rich welfare barrons.

Alas, that's a well kept secret... What with the shelters, off-shore accounts, and cans buried in the yard. It's no wonder.

I mean, how many were there who had millions and perhaps billions laundered by the Swiss? There were rumblings it was in the tens of thousands. However, they were only the poorer uber-rich, but, they managed to buy their way out of it. (for pennies on the dollar, if any fines were rendered at all)

I know you're not going to find a number you'll be able to accept. So, maybe we should discuss the regressive nature of planning taxes as percentages and how in real terms a 28% tax on the middle class is far more of a burden than even your mythological 40% tax is on a millionaire.
