What is a "Fair share" in regard to what percentage of taxes a person should pay? (income of top 10% US population)

Posted by: xhammy

These people make around $150,000 to the billionaires, for perspective. A guy by name "NelsonKnows" posted this in opinions and it seems it should be in polls instead, all credit of poll stupidity or being cool goes to him. I slightly modified it to what I deemed better.

I much rather have the tax amount be based on how stagnant the money is. If the money is going into the economy and helping businesses then I would want a low tax. But if the money is just sitting around being stagnant, I would be ok with ridiculous tax rates.
