Like I have stated on other places on this forum...income tax doesn't affect higher brackets like it does the rest of us. Once you start breathing air that rich 80% of your 'income' is captial gains and/or inheritance...which is why getting rid of the estate tax and the capital gains tax will only help those at the top.
