The impact of taxes on American citizens, 2016
In 2016, Americans will pay roughly 20% more in total federal, state and local taxes than what they spend on housing, food and clothing combined, according to an analysis by the Tax Foundation, a nonpartisan tax research organization.Interestingly, this huge burden has a "disparate impact" on Americans. Specifically, 45% of Americans pay no federal income tax. The rest of us pay their tax for them, while they vote to decide how much tax we should pay to support them.
It's interesting that the emperor's henchmen have decreed that anything that has a "disparate impact" on people of different races is by definition discrimination. Yet the tax system has such an impact. Wonder why *that's* not considered discrimination--and thus illegal?
Oh wait, I think I know....
