How much can the 99 percent squeeze out of the 1?

In 2007 to 1.3 trillion in 2009.

2008 The bottom 75 percent of all taxpayers in any household with an adjusted gross income under $66,193, had a total of $2.75 trillion in income.

People earning more pay a larger share of the tax burden.

2009 was a bum year for those in the top 1 percent.

In 2008-2009 income pulled in a total of 1.3 trillion.

I think people with more income shouldn't have to pay more. All because they work harder then others, doesn't mean they should have to pay more then others.

In Akron Oh, a pizza delivery man got robbed on Gale St. Friday night at about 8:30pm.The driver said that three man approached him from behind, struck him in the back of the head and demanded money. When he dropped three pizzas on the ground, one of the suspects grabbed the food and ran.While the others kept fighting him.
I think that people need to stop robbing people and get a job and get there own money because when that money gone what money you gone have what you gone do rob somebody again and get caught and go to jail or do you want to get a job?
