Do you really believe that an extra dollar worth of income should equate to a penalty of $60,000 dollars? Even more extreme could be the difference between .49 and .50 at the end of the 2mil, 1 extra penny of earned income should penalize an individual $60,000, really?
Someone doesn't understand marginal tax rates.
