More success equals more taxes??

I saw an article this morning about a group of millionaires who went before Congress asking for higher taxes. They felt that if you make more than a million dollars you should pay higher taxes. I’m all for making things more even but this is not the solution. Most millionaires have worked very hard, both in school and in the business world, to achieve the financial success they have achieved. Why should they be forced to cover up the mistakes of a government gone wild??

The bottom line here is that our country isn’t in debt because we don’t bring enough tax dollars in, we’re in debt because the money that is brought in is wasted, stolen, and misused on a regularly accepted basis. Raising taxes on anyone will not solve the problems if our leadership continues their habits of irresponsible spending.
