_No, taking 100,000 from someone in taxes is un-fair.
Why punish those who are well off?
Maybe, they actually strived to make a living?_
I'm not saying that it is fair to that person, but is it fair to the 10 people making 30K/year to pay 10K each? Be a big boy and think it through. Everyone strives to make a living, why should those that work the hardest, doing the most menial, physical labor jobs be taxed as hard as those that make 10 to 100 times more? We have always had a progressive tax system, don't be so blind.
It's not punishment, we all gotta pay our share. if you make more, you should pay more. Wouldn't you be happy to take home $200K/year?
