> > ***I do not think it is punishment at all. You make money. You pay taxes. That money goes to many things that help all people, Fire Dept's, the wars etc etc...If you are rich then you pay more taxes because you are rich and can afford it. I do not understand what is so evil about that. The wealthiest 1% makes more money than the bottom 50%...How can this country have soo many billionaires and have extremely high child poverty as well? I do not think that is what this country is all about.

That's silly. A punishment would be a rich person being taxed to the point of being poor. I'd gladly be a rich guy who is taxed more than anyone else.
