Taxed Enough Already?

(This was so good I just had to repost it here.
From my friends at Progressive Delmarva)

No. No you're not. Not even close. In fact, you pay the least amount of taxes you've ever paid since 1950.

Federal, state and local taxes — including income, property, sales and other taxes — consumed 9.2% of all personal income in 2009, the lowest rate since 1950, the Bureau of Economic Analysis reports. That rate is far below the historic average of 12% for the last half-century. The overall tax burden hit bottom in December at 8.8.% of income before rising slightly in the first three months of 2010.

Teabaggers, why don't you just admit why you're really doing all this teabagging? Because it's not the taxes, and if it was the spending, why didn't we see any of you from 2001 - 2009, when racked up record deficits? Just be honest with everyone on what this is really about.

Well you won't pay as much in taxes if you make less money especially in a progressive tax system.
