Percy Pascoe is on to something. He and I agree that all income should be taxed at the same rate. It’s only fair.

Since the 14th and 5th Amendments have been taken to require that all citizens receive equal protection and equal rights under the law, there is no legal justification to punish high earners with a larger tax burden than their fellow American citizens.

I join with Mr. Pascoe to demand equal treatment for all Americans!
