Everyone says the 1% starts at $250,000 but is that really a lot of money? What was the reasoning for making that the starting point. Why not $500,000 or 1 million? Would it be better to tax say under 1 million less and go hard on those earning 10 million or higher. Could there be a better scale in how to tax earners? Someone making 100 million could easily swallow a 30% tax on income vs someone making 5 million. Is there a reason not to tax the super wealthy more than the barely wealthy?
