    and not about fairness.  It's really simple.  We just can't get the economy moving with so many people struggling.  One of the main reasons they are struggling is income inequality.  Without leveling the playing field a bit through higher taxes on the upper brackets, too many people will be trapped at the bottom.  Therefore, the economy will remain stagnant.
