For decades the middle class has been getting effed over. Yes, it's our patriotic duty to pay our taxes -- for things like firemen, roads, schools, safe drinking water -- and we're happy to do that, but everybody's got to pony up. For instance: Exxon paid no taxes in '09. The wealthiest 5% have been paying less and less and less over the last 40 years.

The wealthiest 400 pay an average of between 16% and 17% taxes.
