9. Fair to me is 39.6% for those making $300-750K a year...

50% for those making $750K-1.5M, and 60% for those making over $1.5M/year.

8. If America's largest employer is Walmart paying 17K a year, "rich" isn't 400K and up

 

And in any case, the very wealthy make their money through cap gains. Nor, by any stretch is this a fair share. Discussions like that are meaningless. We have a society, it has obligations to its members that must be paid for, and we are neither collecting enough to pay for it nor making good on our obligations.
