    Tax Units With Zero or Negative Tax Liability, 2009-2019

    http://www.taxpolicycenter.org/UploadedPDF/1001289_who_pays.pdf <----REPORT
    46.9% TO BE EXACT as of 07/09.

    The Income Tax System is Broken - CBS News?

    Does it sound like Democrat FREEBIES on OBAMACARE? Yes?

    We also know WHO Obama supporters ARE by looking at the data. They VOTED for Obama because they want 'FREE' stuffs.

    It's the truth, isn't it???

    Well, I don't know, I mean plenty of high-income people voted for Obama, so its not like all of his support comes from those paying no tax.

    I would also point out that there really isn't any tax plan out there that shifts more of the tax burden onto the lower wage earners, as that would just result in further pushing them into poverty. Even plans like the flat tax and fair tax have provisions exempting earners below a certain income level.

    What I think we need to avoid is the current (bipartisan) strategy of overspending and either driving up deficits or increasing tax rates on what I think is an already overtaxed society. I think the government at some point needs to recognize that there are certain things that it simply cannot do well and look to shift resources away from those programs. More of a concern to me than the fact that many in the country pay no federal income tax are things like government spending as a % of GDP, the deficit, and poor positioning in the global economy.

    Ugh, no. Look at those stats again. Total number of units ( in thousands) 71.0. There are more than 71,000 tax payers in this country.. I have no idea what it was measuring but it wasn't the nation as a whole..........

    71 was the number with no federal tax liability in 2009, if I'm not mistaken, roughly half of all taxpayers.

    Pretty idiotic post and comments, as Obama has not revised the tax code all that much.. we just finished a cycle that would probably be best described as Bush's... the fiscal year ended prior to his inaugaration.. so keep looking and googlin Obama bad, you will find something..

    I forgot to add it in my first post. It's the latest REPORT on who don't pay income tax. The numbers are in. Check out the report. Here is the excerpt of this report.
