Here's one

Note that this does not include state taxes (also paid by nearly all), which I have on another chart. What this shows, is basically once you get into an upper-middle income, your rate tops out, and never goes up. In fact, it starts going down if you earn enough, such as with Mitt Romney's 12.9% effective rate. This is why the middle class is shrinking.
