The US has graduated tax that punishes the rich and benefits the poor. Russia has flat tax, the same for everyone, regardless of poor or rich.

awe, those poor rich people, abandoned and hungry, without healthcare with no roof to shelter them...
don't ya just feel sorry for them???
back in the 90's a poor single mom with a couple of children and no income could get benefits that was estimated to be the equilvalant of a $10 an hour job. if she actually went out and got a job, those benefits plus her earnings would equal even more as long as she didn't make enough to go over the "low income". this freed up those employers, many of the big corps, to be able to have a better selection of applicants who they didn't have to worry if the wages they paid were enough to put a roof over their head, food on their table, healthcare, or even childcare.... and who is sitting on the top of those corps in many cases???
oh, ya, those that you refer to as rich, who often times have a wide variety to tax deductions, credits and such that they can take advantage of...
meanwhile, a family of five, earning just $9 an hour, couldn't get any help, not with childcare, not with housing, not with medical care.... they were the sacrificial lambs!!!
