Tax the rich - not the poor

From LaVern F. IselyMonroeWhat took place in Madison on March 12, 2011 was totally inspiring. There was 85,000 to 100,000 people marching around the Capitol Square shouting "This is what a democracy looks like." All the various union worker standing on the sidewalks with the names of their various unions, who say we have a right to collective bargaining for a living wage. That is the question - what is the difference between those people and a hedge fund dealer, who is so smart that he can make $5 billion a year and pay income tax at only 15-percent rate?
