Part of the reason so many Americans donít pay federal income taxes is that Republicans have passed a series of very large tax cuts that wiped out the income-tax liability for many Americans. Thatís why, when you look at graphs of the percent of Americans who donít pay income taxes, you see huge jumps after Ronald Reaganís 1986 tax reform and George W. Bushís 2001 and 2003 tax cuts. So whenever you hear that half of Americans donít pay federal income taxes, remember: Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush helped build that.
