So it turns out that 47% of Americans don’t make enough money to pay any income taxes. That includes vast numbers of working people, mostly with children, who don’t make enough money once tax credits are counted to owe any federal income taxes.
I keep hearing we’re the richest country in the history of the world … and 47% of our people don’t make enough money to pay federal income taxes. To be fair, lots shouldn’t: retired people, people on disabilities, etc.
But the rest work, but don’t make enough to pay federal income taxes. That’s just sad.
