  •  wealthy have too much (7+ / 0-)

    their money is wasted.

    three bad things happen as a result of their excess wealth.

    1) they don't spend it as efficiently as the less wealthy, meaning leaving money in their hands is a drag on the economy.
    2) they invest their excess funds in speculative bubble schemes that collapse and hurt everyone.
    3) they buy and thus corrupt the government.

    they have captured more and more of our national income in recent years, and the economy has gotten worse and worse. taxing them more is good for everyone.
