1. It doesn't matter whether they do or do not.

What matters is that in any measure to balance the federal budget, the pain is shifted to the upper income earners.

They are paying less taxes than their secretaries, they benefited handsomely from their nonsense Iraq War that their own party promoted and executed, etc. They reneged on their promise that they would create jobs in exchange for tax cuts.

So, no, it doesn't matter who's paying more and who's not paying more. Totally immaterial.
