Soak the very, very rich
I think James Surowiecki has the right idea in his New Yorker piece entitled "Soak the Very, Very Rich." We should focus tax hikes a little more carefully so that it is the "very, very rich" who get "soaked". Leave the "small business owners" alone. To make the point more clearly, LeBron James and LeBron James's dentist shouldn't be paying the same tax rate.
