The more you make, the more of a percentage you can afford to pay. A billionaire paying 50% of his income doesn't impact his ability to live nearly as much as a person making $50,000 paying 50% of theirs does.

I don't know why such a simple concept goes over your head so easily.

See post #16.

I don't know why some rich people bitch and moan about this. It's such a simple concept to understand. The more you have, the more (percentage-wise) you are capable of giving up.

How can you say Romney is not in great shape. How many 65 year olds do you know, you look half as good as he does?

(40 does seem a little political, shall we say, a number to me too.)

He is in good shape, but a resting heart rate of 40 means a 20 year old in good shape. No way Jose.

By the way, it's income that is taxed differently. That's how marginal tax rates work. It's a common misperception that if you are in the 35% tax bracket, you pay that rate on all your income. You don't

The top marginal tax rate is 35% on wages. For example, let's take someone who is well within the top 1% of taxpayers, a single person who after deductions has $400,000 dollars in adjusted gross income, the 35% rate only applies to a small part of their income.

Here's the marginal tax rates work.
10% on taxable income from $0 to $8,700, plus
15% on taxable income over $8,700 to $35,350, plus
25% on taxable income over $35,350 to $85,650, plus
28% on taxable income over $85,650 to $178,650, plus
33% on taxable income over $178,650 to $388,350, plus
35% on taxable income over $388,350.

This person would pay 116,762 in Federal income taxes an effective tax rate of 29%.
35% of 400,000 is $140,000.

OK. We agree.

When tennis champ Arthur Ashe had a heart attack at age 36, at first they couldn't tell what was going on, because his resting heart rate was 54, so his elevated heart rate was that of a normal person.

Still, I hope as in half a good shape at 65 at Mitt Romney.
