Sarcasm aside... Wealth distribution is not equal. Anyone who believes that the Rich just work harder than everyone else is kidding themselves. They don't work harder than Fred the plumber or Andy the Baker, the difference is that society has decided that the job they do is worth more.
I will agree government is wasteful sometimes in its spending and how/where it allocates resources. Again like past U.S. Presidential election Romney was railing against PBS who was like .. So instead of looking at our massive bloated military budget which fead our military industrial complex most politicians want to cut fat where there is no fat.Furthermore, the budget benefits would be miniscule. The CPB’s two-year, $445 million government grant makes up less than 1/100th of a percent of a Federal Budget worth upwards of $3.5 trillion

Because tax buttfucks everybody.
The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits, whereas stupidity does not...
Has anyone actually suggested getting rid of schools or roads or police? Or is that just the usual bullshit straw man?
Assuming you are single and make 90.000$, after taxes you have 64.800$ to spend on your life.
And if you are single and make 200.000$, after taxes you have 134.000$ to spend.
If you are making more money, you are getting more money anyways
How about sales tax on the goods they purchase? Goods such as food, which is the same price for the wealthy mind you. How about fuel excises?
Income tax is not the only form of revenue the government posses.
For society to work you NEED the poor to exist. Not everyone can be a CEO. Indeed without the lower class the Rich wouldn't even exist.....
Sorry to burst everyone's bubble but this country's greatest era was when the rich were taxed over 90%. Not saying it was because of it, but understand that they are being taxed much less than they were post-WW2, when America was the superpower.
That's not even getting started on the generally shorter work hours and higher standard of living. The 1950s look like a giant piece of shit compared to the 2010s.
