I'm sorry Republicans in Congress — you are wrong.

It is not fair that someone making several times the amount of money I do pays less dollar amount in income taxes or may even pay no income taxes.

He or she gets at least as much protection from the government as I do. Make them pay taxes on an equivalent percentage of their income to what I pay.

The economy of the governament will be helped and the business economy with not fail.
