Taxes and Tea Parties by the numbers.
Some of that may be a little silly or tenuous… but over all it might put some things into perspective. I’d like to see added…
Percent of families that pay no federal income tax: 47.
I doubt the data is available, but I’d be curious to learn how many of those who are Taxed Enough Already are among the 47% who pay no federal income tax (and how many work for a corporation that is among the 66% of them who pay no federal income tax).
Of less interest nationally, but of great interest to me would be the percentage of Tea Partiers who live in Tennessee where the regressive tax structure places extra burdens on the poor and middle class and drives business out of state.
Or what percentage of Tea Parties think that collecting 27% of GDP in taxes is unconstitutional but that the 4th Amendment is meaningless, warrant-less wiretaps are just fine, and habeas corpus is just an inconvenience to be worked around by presidential fiat.
