No. They already pay far more than their share. A person making $250,000 a year can't afford all of the tax breaks the really rich people do. These people are lawyers, doctors, and small business owners. Why should they work hard only to give it to the government? We've started to look into one of us quitting a job because the second person's income is taxed at 50%. We could avoid almost $50,000 in taxes if my husband stayed home.
