$250K per year is not a lot of money. Don't get me wrong, I will not turn it down but I do not consider that rich.
I am for taxing "rich people" more (IMO $500k - $1MM per year and up). I am not for demonizing them. Success and wealth (obtained morally and ethically) is a good thing, and it should be admired. Not every rich person is an Enron executive.
Equal opportunity, NOT equal outcome.
