I've always really liked the idea of the supremely rich paying supreme amounts of tax. If it bothers them, they can come split a 2-bedroom apartment with me and make $45k a year and enjoy nice low tax bracket.
Each generation goes further than the generation preceding it because it stands on the shoulders of that generation.

And why does this imaginary rich person have any bearing on your life and the amount of taxes they owe? Why do you like the idea of of government collecting taxes more on the rich? Do you feel that they need to be punished? Do you feel that the rich person has more money because he is taking it from someone else?

We have so many people who can't see a fat man standing beside a thin one without coming to the conclusion that the fat man got that way by taking advantage of the thin one.
