Half of All Americans Don't Pay Income TaxUp 9Down 2"We’re dismayed at the injustice that nearly half of all Americans don’t even pay any income tax."
Again, this quote comes from Rick Perry's speech the day he announced his presidential bid. Does he mean here that he'd actually raise taxes for more people? Because that's sure how it appears. Probably not. Again though, this statement is somewhat misleading - you have to look at the specifics and that's where 'The Washington Post' comes in again: Perry is not talking about payroll taxes - and that's stuff like Medicare and Social Security (paid largely by middle and low-income taxpayers).<< PREV 1 of 14 NEXT >>
