The problem comes down to 'how much is enough'. Yes it's true as a function of absolute dollars the rich pay tons more in taxes then anyone else. The problem is it is impossible for someone who makes $30,000/year and pays about $4,000 in taxes and has nothing to show for it at the end of the year to understand someone paying 4.5 million in taxes and pocketing 5.5. To someone making $30K, 5.5 million is exorbitently sick money for anyone to 'have' to have. Yeah, it's a bitch that someone making 10 only walks away with a little over 1/2, but damn

But it doesn't matter what the lower income people think. They have no right to say what others do with their money. And the much higher percents start at a much lower income than $5 million. There are plenty of upper middle class people that are in the middle, get the higher percent, that are hardly the "rich" the Democrats talk about.
