"Fairness" has changed meaning since I went to school, I guess. Thought it meant "even" - as in everyone pays their "fair" share, all paying the same percentage would seem "fair" to me. The ignorant continue to believe taxing the "rich" more will somehow pay "their share" of the debt. The ignorant do not realize that raising taxes will provide LESS money to pay down the debt. If only the ignorant WOULD read a book.
