That is simply veiled leftist BS.
The rich pay a LOT of taxes. We need more rich people, not less. And the richer the better.
I tend to agree with you.
I’m not talking about trying to bleed the rich. I’m talking about putting everybody on the same page in terms of the rate they pay and that everybody functions under the same rules, with nobody getting any sort of deductions that is not available to anybody else.
You don’t really think the tax code is 73,000 pages long, because the government wants a fair tax system, do you?
