Should taxes go up on the ‘super rich?’

Monday, August 22nd, 2011

We have a new poll question for you. Warren Buffett, a super-rich man himself, said people in his class should be taxed more. He points out that he pays a lower tax rate than people making, say, $200,000 a year. That claim is determined to be true by PolitiFact. If you really want to did into tax code issues, you should also read the PolitiFact’s treatment of John Cornyn’s statement that 51 percent of Americans paid no federal income taxes in 2009. That was also determined to be true. Cornyn is a Republican senator from Texas.

The PolitiFact pieces are great, because though each statement is true, there is context to each worth considering.

This is America. Please vote.
