I just read todays article in the Tax section of TMFentitled "Tax Tidbits."Was anyone else concerned about the author's slantin the "Your Fair Share" section? He points out that1% of the taxpayers paid 33% of the taxes in 1997.What he fails to mention is that those in that 1% are probably making a whole lot more than 33% ofthe income. And so on down the list of the otherstatistics he presents.I came away from his article wondering if he was trying to make me feel sorry for these "poor" folksmaking lots of money. Was he implying that the actualpoor folks should pay more?
