    Sometimes I wonder if the country would be better off if political positions, all political positions from local to federal, were filled by pulling names out of a hat.

    Sorry Ken, I'll type this slowly so you can follow along.

    The 1%'ers actually employ only a small percentage of workers, the majority of people are employed by small business owned by the 99%'ers.

    From CNBC

    https://www.cnbc.com/2015/04/13/top-...ome-taxes.html

    Top 1% pay nearly half of federal income taxes

    According to a projection from the non-partisan Tax Policy Center, the top 1 percent of Americans will pay 45.7 percent of the individual income taxes in 2014—up from 43 percent in 2013 and 40 percent in 2012 (the oldest period available). (Tweet this)

    The bottom 80 percent of Americans are expected to pay 15 percent of all federal income taxes in 2014, according to the study. The bottom 60 percent are expected to pay less than 2 percent of federal income taxes.
