I find it infuriating when people who aren’t “rich” feel that they have justification to say that “rich people get paid too much and aren’t paying enough in taxes.” Do such people personally know every “rich” person on the planet on an intimate basis? Do they know each hardship and expenditure that each and every “rich” person faces? Of course not. Yet, it is commonplace to hear people exclaim that the “rich aren’t paying their fair share.” That’s BS of course, since the wealthy pay a disproportionately larger percentage of the tax burden.
It would akin to a White person growing up in the 1980s saying that, “Black people growing up in the 1950s Deep South had it really easy”. How is it fair to make such a generalized statement on such a broad cross-section of the population, especially when you are not a member of this cross-section of the population and have no first-hand experience to back up your assertion?
