dork in the butt. What nonsense.
What, actually, do those paying 'more' taxes get more of? More services? More police protection? Fairer trials, court dates? Preferred access to the National Parks? Get to skip around TSA lines at the airport? Bypass the highway toll booths? House calls by the DMV? More 'government services' of any kind?
What tangible things do the 'rich' get more of, when they pay more taxes?
More access to political pull is about the only thing.
Stuff it, Matt Damon.
