    Depends on whether you purchased HAL (or similar companies) prior to 2002.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Nope, didn't derive any benefits beyond what you and others got as well

    Which proves that nobody benefited (more so than others) from doubling the defense budget.

    others who are millionaires can afford to pay a little more in taxes. it would help the country a lot.

    they can afford it and it will barely affect their spending, if at all.

    its common sense. its logical. its not rocket science.
