Why do you think they don't deserve a tax break or should pay a higher percentage than the rest of us? Why is it a crime to be successful! Was America not built on the ideals that everyone has an opportunity to make something of themselves in this country...or does that only apply to a certain extent? Why must those be punished for busting their asses to have everything they have today? I don't understand.
My uncle barely graduated high school. He was in trouble, so he asked my grandpa to lend him some money so he could open a car dealership. He did. After many years of almost losing his business, it took off. In the 20 years following he opened 9 more dealerships and is now a millionaire. He beat alcoholism and prostate cancer. He runs marathons now and one of his dealerships gives to over 50 charities. My uncle is a good man. He did not become rich by being greedy...he became rich by being smart, working hard, and making good decisions. But $90,000 a year in income tax payments is not enough for you people. You want him to pay MORE!
Why in the world would ANYONE want to venture out and try to make something of themselves when the rest of you are wanting to take it or hoping he/she fails? It seems like it would be easier to not do anything and get government assistance than to build a business or what have you. Why are you sending people the wrong message?

I do not agree with tax loopholes that only apply to those with exorbitant amounts of money/income. Would should a person who earns a billion $$/year be able to legally show a taxable income of $250,000? Why is that OK? Isn't that just the equivalent of entitlements for the wealthy? I think we need total tax reform and fair+flat tax-no loopholes. Many of the wealthiest Americans have inherited their wealth. THEY did not do anything but be born; no blood seat, tears or long hours toiling. Make it fair, for EVERYONE- unless the US WILL become a third world country with a very few owning and controlling everything-

I don't hate the wealthy because without them people wouldn't have jobs.
