i guess i'm under the impression that those who have pass on their costs
associated with risk to the average-wage earner (or crack whore, as they're
perceived by libertarians). what i see as progressive: GREATER PERCENTAGE OF
WEALTH HELD BY FEWER PEOPLE, progressively more each year.

regarding percentage of taxes paid (another post i'm too lazy to look for
now) is it not true that anything over $800k in income is not taxed?
