Nice little clip. Thought I'd share! 

 

Cheers!

Good video, it's amazing how low the effective US tax rate is for billionaires.

Nice clip. I love how that women talked about quality of jobs. Everyone talks about how great our unemployment rate is, but we don't take a good look at how that number is calculated. It's such a superficial statistic. 

Also, yes the rich evade taxes and that's messed up.. but if they all started paying their fair share, I can assure you the money is not going to be any better spent than it is right now. We'll just build double the # of bombs.

@DivineSoda Very good point. What's also messed up is how workers pay more taxes than the owners of businesses. No one bails us out when we have financial problems. 

 

What a Joke! GM was bailed out by Obama. GM then closes in America and keeps open China, Mexico, and other places. The small businesses were destroyed during covid. There's no bail out or rent fairy.

Only the rich pay net taxes

The top 20% of earners collectively are the only ones that pay anything into the system

This is the opposite of true.

Half of all jobs in America pay less than a Living Wage (less than the $15 an hour Minimum Wage that labor advocates are fighting for).

No surprise then that the Median Wage for American workers is around $35k a year.

And little wonder why younger generations that are bearing the brunt of this economic austerity aren't buying homes and starting families...
