  1. Fair Share means everyone pays the EXACT SAME DOLLAR AMOUNT IN TAXES. A charitable tax, is when we each pay the same percentage of our income. It’s actually not fair, because fair and just, means each pay the exact same dollar amount. What these people support is nothing short of grand theft. They want to punish success and hard work..and simply steal money from productive people to enure they can continue to enslave the permanent underclass of government dependence.
    A graduated income tax is not remotely fair. Ot is theft…nothing short of theft.

  2. John, you can’t possibly be advocating that the millionaire pays the same dollar amount as the person who cleans houses. It is hardly theft to expect that those who have benefited disproportionately from the great resources of our society pay a bit more to maintain those resources. Advantages and opportunity are not distributed equally and so the burden of maintaining a civilized society should be borne proportionately as well.

    Jeff Bezos pays less in taxes, in actual dollar amount, than the person who drives a bus down Mount Auburn Street. How is that fair?
