Do enough Americans pay tax?

This op-ed piece in today’s New York Times raises this always vexing matter: Where do newspapers, whether “of record” or not, take their information, particularly economic and statistical information of the sort found here?

The wise writer will try to hunt down original sources, quoting them instead of the Times, important as it is. Please be alert to this as you assemble facts and figures in your own arguments.
