thought...

If Bill Billionaire paid 2 million dollars in taxes (after his accountants get done working the books) on his 8 billion dollars in income, and Suzy Sausagehead pays 30 thousand dollars in taxes on her 75k in income, is this a fair and equitable deal? If not, why do we keep electing people (in America, of course, apologies to the international readers on this one) who think this is a good way to divide the tax burden? Why do we continue to defend the ultra-rich while the pay multi-million dollar salaries to CEOs who lay off 50k a year workers? Why is a huge percentage of the wealth in America (and the world) being hoarded by a very small group of people? Why do we continue electing people who allow this to happen?
