Everybody, except those, who are incapable of working should pay income tax.
On this we agree.

can be so shortsighted and more interested in fairness(whatever that means) then what WILL work.
I'm speaking specifically of the tax effect on my OWN income, spending and hiring. Changing the top rates has had no impact on how I act. None. These rates have gone up and down. Doesn't affect my spending or my hiring. It's just a small bit more off the top. I don't see it as the primary driver in any of my decision making either in my personal planning or my business planning. The only thing it has changed is that I have been doing Roth conversions the past few years as a tax shelter. But as far as my behavior in business and personal life? No change if it's up or down.

The macro argument I will leave to the rest of you.
