    I'm the 53% and I'm a Victim


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     revloc told me, 'I'm a conservative, but plan to vote for some Democrats because this year I'm voting against all incumbents. We keep putting the same ineffective people back in office. It's time to fire them all.'
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    I've paid federal income taxes every year since I was 14. When I couldn't rub two nickels together and was supporting a wife and raising 2 kids I still had to pay income taxes. The tax laws those years required everyone to pay in. I'm resentful that I have to carry the burden of the other 47% who don't pay any taxes. Why work for a living if you can just vote for a living every 2 years. Just keep voting for the guy who will take from me and give it to you. Romney was just telling the truth, he just got the victims wrong. It's the folks who pay taxes that are the victims of unfair tax policies. When Obama talks about paying their fair share he should look at the 47% who don't pay any taxes, not the top 5% who pay 40% of the taxes. We're all in this together we all need to pitch in.
