CNN PRODUCER NOTE GoGreen58 says the middle class makes up the majority of the population in the United States. He says if Americans want to turn the country's economy around, then a bulk of the taxes needed to help the country are going to have to be from the middle class. 'Right now, everyone knows that the middle class is taking the heavy burden, but if we let off the gas, things could get worse,' he said.
He does not believe raising taxes on the wealthiest Americans will fix the country's economic problems. He feels as though the middle class should pay more in taxes, although he admits he has not paid taxes yet because he is still a college student. He will be paying taxes is up coming year. 'I can't wait to pay taxes because I want to do my part in helping this country,' he said.
'I know my tax money will go towards good programs and jobs, but will also go towards programs that people abuse, which I'm kind of not happy about.'
