I keep hearing Barack Obama talk about how he wants to get rich people to pay their ‘fair’ share. So what is a fair share? Can any of our left leaning friends on this website define for me what ‘fair’ is? So far, all I know is that ‘fair’ somehow means ‘more’.
This is a serious question, and I would be saddened if the left (CVIM, Festus Malarkey) overlooked this opportunity to help me understand what fair is, so I can be more in tune with their logic.
Perhaps you can give me a number? Is 20% of income fair, or 30% of income, or 70% of income? And how did you arrive at that number?
Or, don’t use numbers. Tell me what it is you think our tax system should do/provide/offer. i.e. provide for these programs 1…2…3…4 etc.. based on this logic….
Here is your chance to really define the ‘fair’ tax for me….
