The does not seem to be any definition of what "fair share" means when applied to taxing the people who have money. The tax raisers among us certainly would not consider it fair if everyone one paid the same amount of money; they don't consider it fair if everyone paid the same percentage of their income in taxes (they must have missed the day in 3rd grade where many learned that 20% of $1,000,000 is more than 20% of $50,000); and they don't consider it fair that the top rate is infinitely higher than the lowest rate which is 0%. The left's definition of "fair share" appears to be that some people should pay everything that is needed. What happens when that is not enough?
