Our tax system is seriously flawed when you and I pay more in income taxes


than the richest people in the world. It's pretty stupid that the politicians continue to fight over tax rates when the real issues is loopholes for the very wealthy. And this isn't even a partisan issue. Both liberal and "conservative" billionaires take advantage of a very broken system.

I admire wealthy people. They have worked hard, have entrepreneurial spirit, innovate to make all of our lives better, have the kahunas to take risk, and deserve to reap the rewards of the American dream. What they should not be able to do is game the system such that they do not pay their fair share of taxes. When you and I pay more than Bezos, the system is broken.
