  • They have more money than the people who actually need their money to live.

    Rich people don't care about other people that are starving in the streets. They may also be really greedy to others that don't have as much as they have. They are also very selfish and show off to the poor that beg for money on the streets around the world.

  • The rich must provide for the poor.

    The rich in all nations should pay higher taxes, but especially in those countries where people are starving and dying on the streets while others live in opulence. It is simply not wise, not fair, not just, that such marked wage disparity is permitted to exist. The rich will still be rich if they pay higher taxes, and perhaps the poor won't starve and suffer. Win/win.

  • Yes, progressively higher to help the poor

    The rich in all nations should pay higher taxes, but especially in those countries where people are starving and dying on the streets while others live in opulence. It is simply not wise, not fair, not just, and creates all kinds of social problems when there is a large gap between the rich and the poor. The rich will still be rich if they pay higher taxes, and perhaps the poor won't starve and suffer. It is a win/win solution.

  • Yes, the rich everywhere should pay a higher percentage in taxes.

    There is no reason why the rich shouldn't pay a higher percentage of taxes than low income earners. Some people make more money in a year than most do in ten years. Just some basic math shows the unfairness of how little the rich are required to pay in taxes in some places. A person making 50,000 dollars taxed at 50% would have 25,000 dollars in income, while a person making 500,000 dollars taxed at the same rate will still have 250,000 dollars to live on. Some people don't make that kind of money in years. The rich should always be required to pay a higher percentage in taxes than the less wealthy.

  • The rich should pay higher taxes in any country.

    This is not to punish the rich, but to ensure everyone is paying their fair share of taxes. This goes for the USA, China, India, as well as every other country. All citizens should be taxed proportionately. This would lead to a rich person paying more taxes, whereas someone poor would pay less.

  • Its a myth!!!!

    Taking from someone who put his efforts and hardwork to earn the money, and giving it to someone who sits all day and curses fate and government for his dark days, i don't think its fair to the people paying taxes. So a percentage of tax to all is fair.

  • It hasn't worked in the past, it won't in the future - people should think of earning money instead of cutting others' earnings

    Just imagine the difficulties in carrying out a business if you have to pay effectively 30 to 40% in taxes. There'll be less incentive to establish businesses, or to grow it. Look at the hotel industry in India.. Most of the bigger chains like Leela and Taj have had to sell properties or stakes because of huge operating costs and taxes which led to erosion of profits despite the heavy revenues. Retail taxes are affecting large organised retails. Small mom and pop stores can't think of scaling up without paying hefty interest rates. Recently, the government has raised taxes on e-comm players. So, people, if you think that the huge taxes are going to affect the business owners, you're mistaken. It'll be charged to you in the product price. There are about a thousand ways of making things tax deductible. Moreover, has any rise in taxes increased the standard of living of the common man? I don't know.. Who is the common man? Is he below poverty line? Is he the one who earns a govt salary? Or is he the owner of a small shop? I think a lot of concepts have to be clarified to the majority of people who support 'progressively higher taxes on the rich' (probably they imagine freebies coming their way by some cross subsidising santa - which most definitely will not happen as inflation erodes your money worth and higher cost of products due to higher taxes take away huge chunks of your money at the beginning of every month) .. Socialism has been the cause of decline of nations, leaving behind empty shells of countries without personalities, human happiness or innovation. Capitalism says - let's all aim to be wealthier than we are, socialism says - let's all be equally poor

  • Are the rich in India different from the rich in America?

    If we were to condone something like this, how is it anymore ethically correct than doing it in America? No matter what society, culture, country you go to or come from there will be corrupt people that only seek personal gain. If we were to base this matter on the moral level of The Constitution the question doesn't even seem valid. While there will always be corrupt people, there will always be good people as well. In most cases the majority of people tend to be the latter. It wouldn't be fair to take from someone their hard-earned money in order to support an economy that is based on the decisions of their government. This is as it applies to America, I can't say I'm familiar with the Indian political system but even so morals and ethics should be evenly distributed on an international basis.
