    Anyone who pays a larger dollar amount than I do is far exceeding my paltry contribution. (That certainly isn't a fair thing to ask of them.)

    I thought it was something like "send the government your paycheck, and they will send you what is left over after they pay all the politicians' bills".

    Does "Fair Share" mean that the rest of the Washington politicians are going to pay 25% of their income, too?

    While I think this Rachel lady laid a huge egg with her REVELATION of Trump's Tax Returns, the response from the right has been a bit questionable.

    First: The Issue is not the dollar amount Trump, Obama, Sanders paid, the issue is the Percent of Income they paid. The Report I saw had Trump at 25%, Obama at 18%, and Sanders at 13%. Now, that would seem to be hugely unfair to Trump, right? Well, except that the percentage paid in Federal Taxes is based on the Gross Income. The higher a persons Income, the higher percent they pay in Federal Taxes. So, even that is a bit of a strawman argument.

    The important thing revealed in all of this is it absolutely disproves the false claims by Dems that Trump did not/does not pay Federal Taxes. That really is the only true revelation.

    Trump earned 150 Million and paid about 38 Million in Taxes. The only way one can be upset about Obama's or Sanders actual dollar amount paid would be if THEY ALSO earned 150 Million.

    As for Sanders, and his Net Worth 'n' such........

    Tran Quyet Thang, Not a Bernie Sanders supporter.

    Written 13 Apr 2016 · Upvoted by Marc Bodnick, Harvard Gov major, Stanford PoliSci PhD student








    First, Bernie owns two homes, not three, according to his Senate finance disclosure form, and his net worth is around $500,000 to $700,000, make him technically not a millionaire, although quite close to one.

    Hebrews 13:5 .) Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
    6 .) So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

    The big question is: Why did just the 2005 taxes make it to the surface?

    Donald Trump is a very smart man. The tax returns that were "anonymously" sent had "client copy" on the top of the page, which makes you assume that Trump sent them. Which is absolutely brilliant. It just showed how ridiculous the main stream media has become. He sent them bait to show how desperate and illogical they are about anything and everything to do with him, and they just made fools of themselves. The wall street journal even reported about these exact same returns a year ago.

    I'm waiting for the day that Donald Trump says "I'm the worst president ever, I'm a racist and sexist." Just to have the main stream media disagree and argue with him.

    This definitely makes Trump look good.

    Maybe I've been watching too much House of Cards, but I wonder if Trump had this leaked on purpose as he knew it would make him look good. lol Either way, he should get some credibility when it comes to his taxes now.

    You are probably right. He is smart. I have some basic knowledge to psychometrics, and I'd say he is at least three standard deviations above average.

    If I recall my school days correctly, that would be about 150.

    That's correct. Today SD 15 is most common and three SD above average would be 145. Less common is SD 16, was more common earlier, where three SD above average equals 148, which is about 150.
