If this fact isn't conspicuously addressed when discussing a person's "fair share" of taxes one must conclude that the speaker is arguing disingenuously.

So, before we sell 40% of the working population into indentured servitude, perhaps we could look at how much tax they actually pay instead of focusing on the one tax they don't pay?
