    I just generally laugh really loud and say "Are you fucking kidding me????"

    And then run down the really long list of taxes (and fees) that everyone pays.

    Wave around my paycheck with it's taxes taken right off the top (Payroll), pull out a receipt with sales taxes added on...

    Just make them look like the ridiculous, idiotic buffoons they are, and do it in public.

      But someone once said about marriage that you can be right or you can have peace.

      In other words you can shame the other person and prove that their idiotic buffons or you can get what you really want. Which in this case is rising incomes for the lower 1/2 of Americans.

        I know - I don't enter arguments when I can avoid them, especially with my wife, but there are times with strangers or wingnuts where I don't necessarily care if I destroy their worldview.  Sometimes that's what it takes to get them to think outside their Faux Noise box.
