Depends on his number of dependants and what his deductions are. Even if his employer is taking out income taxes, he may get it all back when he files.

Unhealthy economy = Corporation produces product. Corporation moves manufacturing of said product overseas. Worker has no job and no money. Worker cant buy product (or any other product). Corporation goes bankrupt and receives a welfare check from the government. Corporations have parties and give out big bonuses. Mitch McConnell raises taxes on workers via payroll tax increase to pay for said welfare check (as of last night). Worker forecloses and loses their home. Banks lose money and need welfare check from government. Banks throw parties and give out big bonus's. Mitch McConnell votes to raise taxes on the would be workers to pay for said welfare check. Workers cant get work to pay for tax increase. Government loses revenue. Banks and corporations still throw parties and pay lobbyists and politicians to keep the money coming. etc etc etc on the down hill spiral.
I can keep going on and on and on...but I think you get the picture.

Our current economic/political climate is why I've started "Occupy My Pantry/Gunsafe". Trying to walk that fine line to keep them both full.

38%...I don't think so. You neglected to mention state tax, property tax, sales/consumption tax, capital gains tax, just to name a few (more). If you're like the rest of us who actually do pay their "fair" share, it's probably closer to 50% to 55% of your gross income.

I appreciate this argument but it also stimulated a train of thought.

It is strange that the elite wealthy are always looked at for what they have by those who have not, but we often fail to realize that if they moved their lives & businesses out of the country, the economic stimulation & jobs they provided would go with them.
