    I'd vote option B. I'd rather have more money. Although it's still unjust and unfair for the government to take 50% of that.

    Which one do you prefer?

    I guess I could have modified it a little bit.

    A) $30,000 income with $0.00 tax burden

    or

    B) $250,000 income with $125,000 tax burden and be pissed about it.

    There are three people that have participated in the discussion but refuse to vote in the poll. I think if I could have added, "and be pissed about it" these three people would be less reluctant to vote in this poll. I have my suspicions that those three people would prefer option B but I can't be so sure until they vote.

    That's the way I have been looking at it. Out of the two options offered it just seems like a much better deal all around.

    Re: Which would you rather have?

    Can someone check behind me? As far as I can tell these 12 people have been participating in the thread but haven't voted in the poll yet:

    TurtleDude, lizzie, vesper, Kobie, ernst barkmann, Beaudreaux, RiverDad, digsbe, maquiscat, PoS, Gipper, pbrauer

    Do you suspect that any of them will be voting later? If not, which way do you think they are most likely to vote?

    When someone in this country is punished for taking advantages of all the opportunities provided them in this country and becoming successful and then is punished excessively through taxation for being successful, there is a something seriously wrong. For you to even come up with the scenario that you did proves you are part of the problem/
