How does this in any way make sense? Not trying to start a flame war here but I would really like to know how you arrived at that conclusion.

They both pay the same percentage, but one pays more because he earns/spends more. In my eyes I wouldn't even have an income tax, but something like a consumption/sales tax. That way if you want to pay less taxes you only need to spend less money and be more industrious. Perfectly acceptable option to me.
Makes sense in my mind, but hey if you have some other solution I am all ears for it.

It is hard to feel sorry for people to willingly invite their own destruction and then complain about it. Wipe 'em all out and leave the place to the cockroaches.
