No way man! High taxes make people more patriotic and they work HARDER!

I've actually read arguments by liberals that high taxes make people work harder since they have to earn more income to get the same after-tax income.

Just think how hard people would work if we jacked up the tax rate to 99.9%! Our economy would boom!
