26234, no, the "burden" doesn't continue to get bigger

do you understand the difference between a percentage and an absolute? Paying a larger percentage of a shrinking overall tax amount does not mean the "burden" is continuing to get bigger. It could mean the amount of tax the rich are paying, relative to what they were paying in recent years, is increasing, staying the same, or (as it actually is) decreasing. You're such a hack at this point, it seems pointless to even bring up points of fact, 'cause you're just not hearing them.
