    Please take time to read it.  Yeah, I know it's long.

    There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.

      Less than someone making a million but more than someone making 100k. That's obvious. And 95% of the time I think that's reality.

      But what do you think is fair? If I told you that I made 500k last year and paid 142k federal and 38k state, would you say that's fair?

      Please pretend that I don't give a shit.

      •  If you paid that much it seems fair (0+ / 0-)

        Millionaires and billionaires (plus corporations) need to pay more.  Currently you're in the same tax bracket they're in and that's unfair.  If they paid more we'd solve our budget deficit and national debt quickly (also reducing what we're spending for privatized government services and the Pentagon/NSA).
