Why are you against taxing the super-rich when they pay less taxes?
WIth all of the loopholes and tax write-offs the super rich pay a lower percent of income tax than most of us. Forbes had an article early this year with the numbers http://www.forbes.com/2009/01/29/irs-high-income-personal-finance-taxes_0129_wealthy_americans.html
After reading this do you still worry about taxing the rich? I think the majority of Americans have no idea what a Capital Gains tax is, or how business owners are really taxed. Personally, I think I would be interested in a flat tax. How it is now, it seems like the tax codes keeps things confusing and helps the rich.
I don’t understand why the media doesn’t have accountants talk about these things instead of economists, people in finance, and politicians for that matter.
