Should someone that works twice as hard have to pay twice as much? No. How do the rich become rich. One thing i can tell you is that it doesn't involve much sleep or rest. People have to make a choice, more money and less time, or more time and less money. yes, 1 million dollars is more then it takes to survive, but when people choose money over time, that is their choice. Not only this but money is a valuable incentive, and when taxing the rich highly you are taking away that incentive.

Yes, many affluent people became so because of their hard work. However, the government must pay for a lot of services, which are there solely to contribute to the public's safety, efficiency, growth, and welfare. If the government ceased such services because of cutting taxes for the more affluent, there would be less jobs, more poverty, no affordable healthcare, less affordable transportation, and lack of safety.

So, what I am saying is that although many have sacrificed, the government needs their money or our current society would fall apart.
