"What we're talking about is a one-half percent income tax surcharge on incomes above $1 million," said Rep. Mike Ross, D-Ark., a leader of the Blue Dog group. "So someone who earns $2 million a year would pay $5,000. ... They're not going to miss it."
So, it's OK to tax people if "they aren't going to miss it"? By the same logic, if someone breaks into a celebrity's home and steals some paintings from a little used room, is that OK? They're not going to miss it! No one even uses that room!
