Taxes... government tax rates are meaningless without taking into account how much money you have after other deductions at your paycheck, etc. So this quick off the top of my head list is what are taxes that people never take into account:
1. How much your employer keeps for himself and doesn't pay you. If there are 100 people in the company, and one person gets 90% of the money, that's just like a really big tax.
2. Insurance costs. We're forced to get car and health insurance. Maybe these are good things, but still keep them in mind.
3. Inflation. Yep, wouldn't it be nice to save money and not have to invest it in something that every 10 or 20 years gets blown away by Wallstreet problems. You can thank inflation.
So if the government charges a ton of taxes against the rich, and the rich are just "taxing" the workers, then it's sort of like the non-rich classes being double taxed. Of course the rich would rather take 99% of the money and also pay no government taxes. The people without all the money still have voting power... we just need politicians who aren't bad people. Good luck will be needed.
