If your not worried about how much a person contributes overall to a whole, and only worried about how much they lose of their income, then you have serious personal issues.
In short you dont care at all how much is contributed to the whole, but how much they lose from their income.
Sounds like a punishment to me, and nothing to do with contributing to taxes.
You're - contraction, meaning "you are".
Your - belonging to you.
Is this really all that difficult?
When you earn income, it gets taxed. The more you earn, the more there is to be taxed. If you want to be taxed less, make less money. I mean really, how hard is all of this?
I've come to an epiphany; what the f'k am I doing wasting my time, arguing with pissy, whiny millionaire business owners about the fact that your US income is taxed, when all over this country, there are families earning less than $50K/yr who are being killed by taxes, and they don't qualify for any financial aid. Go cry to someone else.
