When I hear people saying the rich should pay more taxes it sickens me. Why do we feel the need to discriminate against the rich just because they are rich? If people said blacks/whites/minorities etc should pay more taxes people would be outraged calling out the discrimination and racism, but when we discriminate based on wealth people cheer. Are those people hypocrites or do they just not see / care about the discrimination?
If we want to have an undiscriminating tax system everybody needs to pay the same % or the same $ amount otherwise the government is discriminating based on their wealth.
