This is the first time that I have ever seen anyone claim that "a large percentage of people would pay far more taxes than they do now," while the very high income pay less in taxes, is a good thing, but I guess you have your reasons

Yes, I do have my reasons! It's a matter of survival of the American way of life! We are taxing our high achievers to the extent that soon they will no longer be high achievers. Who do you think run the companies, hire the employees, fund the miracle cures, generate the growth, set the standards, etc? The high achievers!

I believe in a flat tax system, where everyone pays an equal percentage of their income to taxes. A National Sales Tax comes as close as possible to that.
