As a point of reference, I have, for most of the past decade, paid taxes at the highest rates. I never once whined about the taxes I paid, but instead was very much in touch with how incredibly blessed I was to enjoy the take home pay I did. You see, I believe one's circumstance are far more about God's blessing than about personal accomplishment. I am just not that arrogant.
As to raising my taxes now, rest assured that ain't going to happen. I am not taxable, nor do you want me to be. I am in the middle of a start-up, financed by my own money. As a start-up just finishing its first year, I lost quite a bit of money, which puts me in the sub-basement of income taxes. In the process, I created 35 jobs last year (and what was your contribution to our economy? probably not much) Sorry, people that our blessed yet complain incessantly about the consequences of that blessing, and then have the arrogance to suggest that they are somehow better than their fellowman because of their blessing.... well, with me, they are the pond scum of our society.
