Is it not unethical for the non-rich to vote for (ever) higher taxation on the wealthy?

Election Day: Will voters raise taxes on the rich?
Yeah, but not unethical for 1% of the people in this country having the majority of the wealth. it's not unethical to pay employees barely livable wages while making massive profits.

Forget the fact the rich get far more benefits from their money than the lower class. Unrefutably, they get more access to lawmakers, have more say in how things get run, have more preferential police protection, likely live in areas with better schools, infrastructure, etc. Most certainly get other benefits to being rich, things the lower class most certainly does not get

The money hoarders shouldn't be the only ones with a free reign to act in their own naked self-interest.

I feel sorry for anyone who devotes their entire life to acquiring material wealth. It's such a soulless and unfulfilling way to spend your time on earth.

*ahem*

"That's just what a wealth-redistributing nazi socialist would say to cover up their class envy."

That's pretty spot on, eh?

These idiots that always complain about the rich also complain about capitalism. Because Obama wont tax the multinationals though, the same idiots say that isn't necessary and the rich should be taxed. I wonder if these idiots know that Obama helped the rich get way fucking richer and he has no intent on taxing them.

Oh, he will tax the middle class and upper middle class, but that's not the rich.
