Holy Crap, I Had No Idea My Family Was Rich

Mrs. du Toit crunches the numbers and explains here how much a "rich" family pays in taxes...
According to the IRS, a family earning more than $53K per year is considered "The Rich" and these people account for 90% of the income taxes paid.
Well, that's the short of it anyway. The whole breakdown is rather interesting. Read the above sentence again, let it sink in, and then tell me the whole goddamn tax system isn't loony.
