The United States is actually more dependent on rich people to pay taxes than even many of the more socialized economies of Europe. According to the Tax Foundation, the United States gets 45 percent of its total taxes from the top 10 percent of tax filers, whereas the international average in industrialized nations is 32 percent. America's rich carry a larger share of the tax burden than do the rich in Belgium (25 percent), Germany (31 percent), France (28 percent), and even Sweden (27 percent)

All that quoted portion states is that most of our tax revenue comes from the wealthy, which can be interpreted in many different ways. What it doesn't say is that America has the highest taxes on the rich, or capital gains, or that our effective corporate tax rates are the highest. So I'll ask again, proof?

And by the way AOG, you know better than to race bait on BFC. You're better than the levels I saw you stoop down to, I expect that behavior from others, not you man.
