Exactly,

It seems we have all become numb to the fact that government takes whatever it wants and continually is dreaming up ways to justify it's own programs.

It should work the other way. Draw up a simple and fair tax plan and then size the government to fit that.

Yes, that's exactly why I gave a specific number on what I thought would be a respectable number for the cap to go down to on a tax that's somehow been around for close to a hundred years without destroying the fabric of our society.

Well, this isn't even a discussion then because if you don't care what way or how much money the gov't takes from you, that's something I can't even fathom.

Yes clearly that's what supporting a compromise of a 45% tax rate on anything above $3-4 million implies: Complete blind and slavish loyalty to the IRS.

What exactly is there to argue? You're fine with whatever taxes the gov't comes up with. We're not. Pretty much the end of the story.
