same rate as everyone else. Everyone should pay the same percentage. Just because you have more money, doesn't mean you should have to pay a bigger share of your money than everyone else. But, they should have to pay it, there should not be tax shelters or other loop holes that allows them to pay less.
Unfortunately, our economy works in a way that fair treatment to everyone automatically hinders the non-rich people making them lose out big time.
So I'd be for a fair tax system that is equal for everyone provided pay is fair, too - based on performance, social requirements and quality of work.
Weather you're very qualified or not - doesn't matter - education is for YOU to learn how stuff works, if you figured your way yourself, so be it.
Weather you're powerful and have the say to raise your wage whilst even firing people - shouldn't fly.
