6. Exactly the point!
It's good to see someone who gets it. I field this argument all to often and it surprises me as to how many people don't get that fact.

Also, the poor pay a higher percentage of their income in other taxes than do the wealthy. If you keep it all in context the fact that the lowest incomes don't have to pay Federal Income taxes makes sense.
