Can we at least be grammatically correct as we argue about this?

The correct grammar (whether you agree with the concept or not about who pays what taxes) is:

“… everyone pay his or her fair share…”

or

“…everyone pay his fair share…”

It is NOT:

“…everyone pay THEIR fair share….”

Everyone is singular and therefore the use of “their” is grammatically incorrect.
