You're ignoring the fact that much of the top 1% gain wealth in forms that don't show up as income. Being paid with shares of stock rather than cash is one of the most obvious of the many, many ways that the wealthy use to increase their wealth without having to list it as income and pay taxes.
I even benefit from that, in fact, as I get shares in the company I work for equal to about 20% of my salary per year. Until I sell those shares, which I won't be doing until I'm retired, I won't pay a cent in taxes on that increase in my wealth.
And yes, I realize it's a bit hypocritical that I take advantage of the very tax dodges that I'm saying shouldn't exist. That doesn't change the fact that the wealthy don't need more tax breaks on top of the metric buttload that they already have.
