In my post Tax Changes, I wondered about a bleak scenario that I didn't know had already befallen society.
"What if middle-income earning families were suddenly taxed the most...?"
Today I became aware of the reasons middle earners are taxed the most. It's really pretty simple.
- The poor have barely anything to tax.
- The rich have tax lawyers and can avoid taxes more easily than others.
- The government still needs money, and so squeezes the middlers hard.
