The easiest, and the least convoluted method to fix this so-called problem would be to simply amend the AMT to have it impact anyone at say, $250,000 in total joint compensation, with a higher income tax - regardless of where the income comes from (including tax free munis and treasuries).

Why $250,000? Is that your definition of rich? Why not a simpler flat tax that kicks in at $20,000? Problem solved easier.
