    nice strawman.

    there is nothing wrong with being rich. we NEED the rich, to invest and create jobs and industry and businesses and new drugs and technology. but they do need to pay their fair-share of taxes.

    with great wealth..comes greater responsibility.

    I have asked this over and over again what is that "fair share" that you are talking about since 38% doesn't seem to be it?

    because most of the rich have great responsibility they are rich. They have no duty to be soaked for the benefit of greedy politicians or parasite freeloaders. They don't get any additional benefits from the government so why do they have a duty to pay higher tax rates in addition to far more tax dollars?

    The fair share is a tax rate that is proportionate to their share of disposable income. ALL disposable income, not just the income subject to FIT

    there is no objective basis for their hate the rich nonsense nor do these people ever note that so many people pay nothing despite having the same citizenship benefits as the rich

    How do you know that they don't get additional benefits from the govt? Do you follow them around and measure the benefits they receive? Maybe you could post the response in the thread devoted to explaining how this could be done.
