Ignorance Reins

Most people want the rich to pay more in taxes.  But most people have no idea how much they actually pay.(

This is an intersting video with normal people showing that they don't have the time or energy to do more than listen to the 30 second sound bites.


  1. I like this one. The only problem I have with the video is that never once does the interviewer say the word "marginal". The "rich" don't pay 35% in federal taxes ... their marginal tax rate is 35%.

    I suppose considering the mental capacities of the people he was talking to, that difference probably just would have been confusing.

    I agree with the message, it just seems a little dishonest to dumb it down like that.

  2. By the way ... I seriously doubt that the idiot who doesn't want or need all his money is in the 2%, but if he doesn't need all his money on a daily weekly monthly yearly basis, there are TONS of charities he can be handing his money over to.
