  •  Except that your statement is misleading (0+ / 0-)

    You use "fair share" as if that's objectively true.

    Look, I'm a defender of Social Security. I'm a defender of Medicare. But I'm also a defender of principles of economic freedom. At some point, the government doesn't get to tell rich people how to spend their money. I think that point is higher than it is now (meaning I'm for increasing taxes on the wealthy), but I don't think it is infinitely high. We really don't want a centrally planned economy. They don't work.

    Try looking at things another way.
