    .."Don't tax the rich" crap is based on the paradigm of moral superiority.  It has nothing to do with financial savvy, or some sneaky attempt to keep the rich from exhibiting their patriotism.

    In other words, in America, it is a widely held belief that rich people are morally superior to poor people (this belief is a traditional plank in the Republican party platform).

    The fact rich doctors, rich loser trust fund babies & rich Wall Street thieves never use their wealth to create jobs is a topic never discussed.

    Obviously, since rich people own & run our media,  the American article of faith that rich people are morally superior is going to innudate every media outlet available.

    That's why every cable news station constantly shows Wall Street  activity tickers (chyron) @ the bottom of the screen. There never has been or never will be a cable news chyron geared towards poor people.
