The Sneak Tax They Switched From Billionaires To You (reddit.com)

Well, if you ever wondered if the invisible hand is working for you, wonder no more! Well, actually I think I took that out of context. Totally out of context.

Anyway, the story link is abouthow an alternative tax that originally started out as a way for about 155 families (super rich I guess) to pay some sort of taxes now only effects people in the middle class range.

36 quite informative comments made on Reddit. Also, for those who are interested, in a book I read called “Rich Dad, Poor Dad“, its stated that taxes started out as a way for the rich to pay out of their wealth and yet somehow turned into everybody else paying taxes.

Looks like it happened again as recently as 1969. LOL
