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.
This where America is confused. Those people ARE being taxed out of the butts!!
The problem is jealousy. The people who dont make money want the people who do to carry the load and that is wrong.
