Taxing people unequally not fair

Published: December 8, 2012

I confess that I don't understand the arguments about the “fiscal cliff” dilemma. Nor do I understand why there is a cliff. I've always believed that America is a free country that treats everyone equally and that all of us should pay our fair share to help keep America running so well. But our tax situation doesn't seem fair if it taxes people unequally.

Why should wealthy people pay a higher rate of taxes than me? Why should poor people pay a lesser rate of taxes than me? We all live in America. Perhaps if the playing field were level, we wouldn't have to worry about a “cliff.”
