It has nothing to do with fairness.
It has EVERYTHING to do with envy.
I was posting to one of the DNC's useful idiots (they're everywhere), and he was whining that some Wall Street executive made four billion dollars and ONLY paid 15% tax on it.
I asked him why he felt that anyone paying $600,000,000 in taxes isn't paying enough, and the guy vanished.
I say there should be an upper limit on how much taxes any one person has to pay, and that limit should be a hell of a lot less than half a billion dollars, no matter how much money they make in a year.
