The Greek parliament has approved a series of unpopular tax rises aimed at boosting revenue in line with Athens' commitments to international creditors.
The measures, approved overnight, introduce a new top tax rate of 42% for Greeks earning more than 42,000 euros (£34,700; $56,000) a year.
If we brought Mitt Romney and his ilk up to a 42% marginal rate, a lot of the deficit problem would be solved.
