The same opportunities are given to everyone, yet we tax success heavily.

You can always choose to be a failure and pay no taxes.

A lot of people do. Still doesn't explain why we force higher incomes to foot the bill.

We can't force lower incomes to foot the bill. They can't afford it.

I am one of the 1% that will have to pay more in taxes now...my life style will not change. I will gladly pay a little more to help out the middle class.

Workers making more than $1 million will pay an average 7.8 percent more - or an additional $170,341 - under the new law.

The federal tax rate will be roughly 39 percent for that group, compared to 26 percent for those earning between $200,000 and $500,000 and 14 percent for those making between $40,000 and $50,000.
Sounds good to me.
