Right vote, wrong reason. Fair share?

More tax on those who pay the most already and less on those who pay less; that is shared sacrifice? Or is it just that most of us do not consider ourselves to be rich, so You all will get more votes by saying 'tax that guy over there, he has the money.'

Look at the average income over the whole of the world's population, our "poor" rank among the highest incomes in the world. To the rest of the world you are the wealthy. How much of your income do you give them? Proportionately you should give half of your income to the poor of the world. By your own standards they can claim it. That would be fair; it is what you expect of our rich people. Are you ready for real social justice? Are you ready to be forced to give that much and more by the coming world?

The commission of 12 are going to be an oligarchy, no debate, no amendments, just a strait up or down vote for the rest of the Congress; that is un American. Who picks these people? O says there will be taxes, Bay says no taxes, both speak to their base, and no one know what is the truth? This "fix" was crazy, and it answers nothing.
