"2) We don't believe in low tax rates for the rich; we believe in low tax rates FOR EVERYONE."
But that would mean that an equal % would apply... which would mean that the 'rich' get to keep, absolute dollar-wise, much more money than the rest of the people. That is contrary to 'equal outcome' philosophy. The only way everything becomes equal is when all the people suffer deprivation equally. The best way to do that is to cut the mountains ('rich') down to the lowest valleys (destitution for all).
