It would be about time they paid their fair share. Our taxes pay for our roads, schools, sewer systems, water systems, fire, police and so many more things. Republican voices want to privatize all of these things which means on top of paying our taxes, we would have to pay additional fees for these things. With the lessening of the tax burden on the wealthiest this has increased the tax burden on the rest of us. Because of this, our infrastructure is falling apart while the wealthy continue to influence government towards the wants of the wealthy instead of the needs of of the country. $10 million+ have a greater responsibility towards the nation BECAUSE they have so much, BECAUSE they had a better education, and BECAUSE all of their NEEDS (not to be confused with wants=not necessary for survival or human development towards the betterment of society) have been met. Society suffers when the wealthy steer the course.
