We already tax the rich. That statement would only be true if we only taxed the poor and not the rich. Kind of like Robin Hood times.

In the USA the rich pay almost all the tax. The argument is that poor people want more from the people who do pay taxes. Free K-12 education, free healthcare, free subsidies and tax credits, and the biggest benefit, living in the USA.

I guess that isn't enough. Oh well.

I was thinking that a regressive system makes a lot more sense. If you tax the rich more than the poor, they just stop working/hide income/move. This means less work is being done and probably less revenue. However, what not many people say is that if you tax the poor, they still require absolute incomes of a certain amount to make a living. This means they have no choice but to work even more to make up the difference, meaning more work and more revenue; also improving the poor's work ethic.

BAM
