quick defense of progressive taxation.

what am i leaving out?

relatively richer americans on a progressive scale

have more property to protect with our armed forces, they use the highway more. who can say that the jet set do not fly more? they are more likely to use the court system and their corporations benefit by every brick of infrastructure and every healthy educated employee.

progressive taxation also encourages persons to hire, spend, and donate unto the economy which allowed them to accumulate wealth,

prigressive taxation helps to prevent the great disparity of wealth which allows them to influence the tax code (and every other aspect of the culture) in their favor.
