This really motivates me to earn enough money to make it into the top 5th of earners in the US

The top fifth of households made 56% of pre-tax income in 2006 but paid 86% of all individual income tax revenue collected, according to the most recent data available from the Congressional Budget Office.
It gets even better for the top 1% of earners
The top 1% of households, which made 19% of pre-tax income, paid 39% of all individual income taxes.
Thanks for the post Jeanne Sahadi -
