Poll: half think they pay too much in taxes


With the annual ritual of filing federal income taxes just behind them, 52% of U.S. voters now believe they pay more than their fair share of taxes, up seven points from earlier this month.

But 54% of the Political Class don’t think they pay too much, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.

This is hardly reassuring, however, since 55% don’t think most members of Congress pay all the taxes they owe.

Just 29% of all Americans say they don’t pay their fair share in taxes, and 19% are not sure.

Sixty percent (60%) of voters nationwide believe tax cuts help the economy, while 15% say they hurt and 14% say they have no impact.
