My brother, who is an accountant, was out visiting a few weeks back and we discussed this topic. His contention was that the first thing that should be done was to close up a bunch of loop holes for the wealthy and THEN raise the taxes. Also, his number for this to really start kicking in was higher, 750k-800k in income before you get big jumps.

I suck at this kind of thing but I respect his expertise, so I'll go with it.
