    overall, as of right now, id rather have the 30000, because Obama would probably use it on something else like ObamaCare

    this would have been the better poll question.

    i vote A
    I'll be looking for your vote later on. This is a public poll.

    Please vote ASAP. This shouldn't be a blowout. Thanks for going against the grain.

    Need more information.
    My expenses are minimal and my life is simple so if it's a choice between being given $30,000 and working like a rented mule for $125,000, I'll take the 30 grand, kick back and tend my garden.

    I didn't vote in your poll because neither scenario is acceptable to me.

    the poll is not a fair poll, a blind man can see from 10 blocks, under A you going to have 30,000 and B your going to have 125,000....anyone would working in the own self interest would want the latter.

    or

    B) A $250,000 income with a $125,000 tax burden?

    Why do you think your answer is the most advantageous for you?
    Really depends. Am I stuck at the chosen income and rate?

    There's no excuse for being unfair, even if the earning differences are astronomical. Redistribution of wealth is NOT the answer.

    But it's also not fair for the government to allow for the very highest in this country to leverage the system with money, power and influence. The FED's are suppose to keep the playing field level. When the leaders allow and even collude to making money, profitability and growth the main metric for measuring success, especially when it devalues the peoples general welfare, they are failing their duty.

    For example if someone said, would you rather make a $100 million annually, with a clear conscience that you paid your employees well and made the country a better place, or would you rather make $200 million at the cost of Americans losing jobs, lowering salaries, with less benefits? Why is a $100 million not enough to have, without screwing everyone? That's what's happening, greed run amok.

    A person satisfied with 30,000 is a person with no ambition. And usually those with no ambition are more than willing to make the other guy pick up the tab for the things he benefits from.

If you use this poll as a guide, it seems that money does incentivize people to work harder.
    You can't make that conclusion. Your "poll" was worded in a way that the situation was in a vacuum, with no difference in difficulty or amount of work.
