Orrin Hatch (R-say anything to stave off an even more extreme wingnut) joins the Limbaugh lying liars:
"The top 10 percent are paying 70 percent of all income taxes. The top 50 percent pay something like 98 percent of all income taxes. Fifty-one percent don't pay anything," Hatch said.He knows this is intended to deceive. He knows the Democratic rejoinder is true. Still, he says the lie anyway.
"Democrats say they [the 51 percent] pay payroll taxes. Well, everybody does that because that's Social Security. They pay about one-third of what they're going to take out over the years in Social Security," Hatch said.
