"...raise taxes on the wealthy which should lead to the perception of a fairer and more cooperative society."

I'm tired of hearing the 'fairer' class warfare mongering.

The top 2% percent of income tax payers, roughly those making over $250K, pay about 44% of the income tax in this country. Think about it - is that fair? I think not, but talking about raising that amount in the name of fairness is plainly dishonest - and stupid!
