The Bottom Line
With Combined Effective Tax Rates of 2.8 percent, do we need to ask why our government is broke and the national debt is about $19 Trillion and growing daily?  These rates were for 2011.  However, in 2016 nothing has changed!  Still, today, some irresponsible politicians continue offering across-the-board tax cuts as the solution to our economic problems.  This is insane!
