quote: You have named mostly local and state taxs. Federal income, ssi, medicare, some gas tax, some excise taxs would be Federal. SS benefit is capped at 3700.00, so why shouldn't the tax be capped? Most consumers would die before figuring out where food comes from or how to stay warm without a thermostat. So, no, the consumer by name also only uses products supplied by companies, that provide the capital and the infrastructure to produce products. The working class does provide the backbone, but where would they go Monday morning? yup, to a job, provided to them by a company or corporation.

Are you talking about Sales Taxes, that all of us pay almost every time we buy something? That would be the WORKING CLASS!!!
Are you talking about Gasoline Taxes, that we pay so that we can drive to and from work? That would be the WORKING CLASS!!
Are you talking about Property Taxes and Personal Property Taxes that we pay on our homes, and in some states, vehicles, boats, etc.??? That would be the WORKING CLASS!!!
Are you talking about all of these taxes that I don't fully understand (but see that I am paying) on electricity bills, telephone bills, cell phone bills, natural gas/propane/fuel oil bills, etc.??? That would be the WORKING CLASS!!
Are you talking about Social Security and Medicare Tax? That would be the WORKING CLASS!!
Re: Income Tax. Our taxes are based on our Gross Income. Their taxes are based on Net Income (what is left after deducting all expenses--we don't get that privilege).
If you would or could add up all of the taxes you pay (property, sales, gasoline, social security, medicare, income, etc.), you'd probably find your overall tax rate to be a higher percentage of your income than what the super rich pay!!!
WHO CREATES THE JOBS? That would be the consumers that buy the products and services. If WE (the consumers (working class) aren't buying, they aren't selling---and, as a result, will be cutting jobs. So, it's WE THE WORKING CLASS that are creating the jobs, by spending for products and services, even though it may be them that are reaping the profits from it.
I stand by my assertion that it is we/us (the working class) that is the backbone of America (not the investor class).
