Way to totally avoid my point. Your answer should have been, yes, the wealthy pay more, much more in taxes, even if it is less than what they historically have.

Aside from that, lifting the cap on wages subject to FICA taxes fixes social security. I agree that some spending must be cut and that defense spending should be the first to be reviewed for cuts.
