Yes, the real underlying point is that "the rich" are not necessarily doing anything illegal with their money when they avoid taxes; they are merely doing what anyone would do in the same situation. The problem with liberals and their orthodoxy is that they think it works in a vacume, as if their decisions have no bearing on behavior. I remember when they slapped a "luxury tax" of 10% on all "luxury" goods back in the early 90s, so "the rich" had to pay a premium on jewelry, furs, high end cars, etc. Well, all of those markets went into the toilet and people lost jobs and the government actually lost tax revenue from it. The fools who came up with the idea were shocked. They still haven't learned a thing.
