Re: "Confiscating over one third"

"American corporations use aggressive strategies to pay less — often far less — than their competitors abroad and at home. A Government Accountability Office study released in 2008 found that 55 percent of United States companies paid no federal income taxes during at least one year in a seven-year period it studied."

2007 Household Income Before Taxes Effective Tax Rate
Top 10% $394,500 20.7%
Top 5% $611,200 20.9%
Top 1% $1,873,000 20.6%
Top 400 $344,831,528 16.6%

What other false things do you believe as articles of faith?
