    Question: don't people who make below 24k a year get the majority of their taxes back with their income tax return?

    One of the worst parts of our tax system is that it discourages labor in favor of investment because investment is taxed at such a lower rate. We essentially tax the shit out of productive high earners like doctors, lawyers, and business leaders and don't touch inherited fortunes or the investor class in general (who do after all control most of the wealth in this country, much more disproportionately than their share of income).
