Really how can you justify that?
The percentage a person pays should be irregardless of income level. Could you also feel good telling a family of 3 making $35,000/yr that they should be forced to pay $13,300/yr in income taxes? How about a single mother making $24,000/yr, can you feel comfortable forcing her to pay $9,120/yr in federal taxes on top of what she pays for state and local?
Did I say I would get rid of the lower rates as you get to 250k? You really need to learn about the progressive tax system we have here in the US.
