Loopholes don't tell of true disparity
November 26, 2006
I read Sen. Elect-Jim Webb's rambling column about tax fairness ("American workers speak for fairness," Nov. 19). To quote the senator-elect, "The top 1% now takes in an astounding 16% of the national income."
What's more astounding is the top 1% pay 34% of all income tax. Where are all the tax loopholes? What is even more astounding is a guy like this getting elected.
Awwwwwwwwwwww. Somebody named Kris FROM CANTON, OHIO who knows absolutely NOTHING about taxes and the economy cannot believe Jim Webb got elected. Excuse me while I play a small violin in the corner for you, Kris...
