Please John, DON'T expect liberals to understand this. Considering that their definition of "fairness" is that everyone enjoys "equal outcomes" and that to achieve this, you must have those "who make more, pay more" in taxes. Our tax code reflects that already in that certain "tax benefits" are extended to government approve businesses!
Rather than create laws where ALL entities and individuals are treated EQUALLY, you have this Progressive model of "fairness", and some get special treatment over others.
In the Liberal/Progrressive mind,, you MUST have "fairness" over anything else in taxation, regulation, and government spending. It's how they pit us against one an other in their demonization of society. To hell with EQUAL OPPORTUNITY under the law.
