I have to have a position for it to be weak. The only position I take on taxation is for a Universal Flat Individual Income Tax (combined with a termination of business income tax), or a Consuption Tax system.
With that said, when taxes rise on the top 2% of income earners, and the tax rate rises on capital gains/investment income, I'm not going to shed many tears either.
