Most Americans paid less in taxes in 2010 than people with the same inflation-adjusted incomes paid in 1980, because of cuts in federal income taxes. At lower income levels, however, much of the savings was offset by increases in federal payroll taxes, state sales taxes and local property taxes. About half of households making less than $25,000 saved nothing at all.

How can you save when you don't make enough to pay federal income taxes in the first place?

I hate it when articles don't include pertinent information.

APOCALYPSEFUCK is Shostakovich says

Caligulan excesses.

I'm thinking Caligula was misunderstood, and that the Senators he fucked with wrote the history. The fucking elitist snob senators deserved whatever he gave them!
