I'm a Republican and conservative, but they always talk about how the top
earners are the job creators so we can't dare tax them but I don't think the
really rich would even notice a small tax increase in their wallets. It would
be about as much of an annoyance as swatting a fly for them. Plus, they could
help create jobs by paying the tax and letting the federal employees keep their
jobs, people who do feel the pain in their pocketbooks every time there is a pay
freeze, promotion freeze or layoffs.
