I don't see it as a strictly ideological thing, is my point.
When it comes to the tax code, the conservative vs. liberal divide is on a flat tax (conservative) vs. a progressive tax (liberal).
A flat tax, of course, raises taxes on something like 95%, whereas the wealthy get a huge tax cut.
In an age of extreme inequality, that's only going to make the problem worse.
