those are the people who can manipulate their compensation or even some markets
the reason why we have problems is not due to the vast majority in the top tax bracket. We have problems because too many people want too much government and want other people to pay for it.
and your ranting about loopholes ignores the fact that the top 5% pay more income tax than the rest of the nation and 47% get full citizenship benefits without paying ANY income tax. That is a real loophole.
the top 1% pay 40% of the income tax and make only 22% of the income
almost every other group of americans PAY A LOWER PERCENTAGE OF THE INCOME TAX BURDEN than their share of the INCOME. Now that is a loophole as well
Only a moron would claim that raising taxes on the rich is going to create more jobs
