Sounds like a recipe

for a government by and for the elites.

Consider: (in 2011) the top 10% of earners paid 68% of the taxes.
The bottom 50% paid only 3% of the taxes.
And the top 1% paid 35% of all taxes.(Source.)

How do you think the top 10% will want their money spent? The top 1%?

Well probably NOT on the IRS, for damn sure. So far, so good. But probably not on free market reforms that would threaten their established positions, either.

Of course, government by and for the elites is pretty much what we have NOW, isn't it? Not sure how much difference this would make.
