    pay their "fair share" of income taxes is that many of them are extremely rich people who refuse to have their taxes raised and yet the very same people who allegedly want their taxes raised. And most of the rest are low income people who, even if their taxes were raised, would generate a pittance in meaningful additional tax revenue. Of course, this is not and never was about raising tax revenue, nor is it even about personal responsibility, or else they'd have raises their own taxes long ago. This is and always has been about class and race. They can't stand poor people, for no other reason than that they're poor.

    I have to wonder if suppressed guilt has something to do with it.
