The topic of tax rates cannot be discussed without discussing WHY you are taxing people. What do you NEED your government to do for you? Invade
Syria or Iran, pay for your mobile phone, mortgage, and McDonalds or liquor?
At some point people first need to educate themselves on monetary policy and economics before jumping on the 'tax someone else' band wagon. Taxing
the people that work more and earn more obviously makes you feel better but its not a valid economic policy as has been shown time and time again.
First we need to agree on what it is we want the government to do and what 'progressives' want it to do its always seems to be different than what it
does - like kill people overseas at a rate of $1,000,000,000/day. If we could save that money then I wouldn't mind spending it on bridges but lets
also agree that the government is wretched at one size fits all education and at creating jobs (which require more taxes and have limited scope).
Only so many bridges and roads can be built.
All of these quick-fix feel-good programs are what ended up getting a lot of communists, Jews, and blacks murdered.
