    Considering that at most this can raise maybe $100 billion (how many taxpayers are there over $1M income?) this is nothing but a show. That would leave the other $1.2 TRILLION we are short this year.

    These sadly misguided people are perfectly free to make voluntary donations to the Federal Treasury. They don't need to wait for the tax rates to be changed for others to do this.

    Progressives would rather ensure Misery For All in a suicidal attempt at Fairness instead of protecting Individual Liberty to chart one's course in life.

    Let the assholes send in extra, if they don't think they're getting taxed enough.

    How are they kooky? How much money could this theoretically raise? Isnt the whole concept of millionaires wanting to pay more taxes a talking point as well?

    These people wouldnt even have to pay more off the top if they wanted to, they could just forgo several of their deductions volentarily.

    Why are they sad and misguided? They want our country to protect its fiscal health and for what they consider important government functions to be funded properly. If that is sad and misguided in your world, then I'd hate to see what you consider happy and wise.
