Most people I know are calling POTUS Donald Trump’s leaked tax return from 2005 somewhat anti climactic. Some are calling it a non-event. What does this say?? Is it that the public’s expectations of Trump’s “Cheat Level” is so high that they’re surprised he paid approximate $36 million in taxes on an income of $150 million?
Regardless, here’s what I find offensive. 36 on 150 is about 24%. According to THIS ARTICLE an American couple earning $400 thousand would pay about 24%. What’s more offensive?? I have a relative who earns about 160,000 a year. And she pays close to FIFTY per cent. And Americans think THEIR middle class is over taxed!!!
