The most stupid survey question this week

A survey by Money Magazine and ICR was reported in CNN.money this week - and I think that the survey question has to win the title of "this week's most badly worded survey question":

"the amount of federal taxes paid by Americans is distributed appropriately across individuals of all income levels."

I find it absolutely unsurprising that most people, regardless of political persuasion, disagreed with that statement (85% of Democrats, 73% of Independents, and 60% of Republicans disagreed) given that you would have to disagree whether you thought the rich paid too much in taxes, or if you thought the rich should pay more tax!
