It's all about fairness. The income tax structure you have devised taxes Warren Buffettat a FULL 10% lower than most middle class Americans. Warren's LT Capital Gains get taxed at 15%. Most of middle class America gets trapped (by AMT) paying 25% on their capital gains.
I'm paying 25% on my LT Capital Gains, to Warren's 15%. My net worth? It's only .000075 that of Warren's. My total income? Likely only a gnat on an elephant's ass in comparing me to Warren. But my tax rate is substantially more than that of a Billionaire? Just how in the hell is that fair?
