i agree, they're not more immoral (in most cases). but morality has little to do with this. if we don't cut government (and military) spending, the money's going to have to come from somewhere. i say, let the rich shoulder a greater percentage of the cost. they can afford it better than middle class and lower class people.

Why should a hard working man who strikes it rich pay a higher percentage of his wealth than a lazy bum, or, for that matter, a hard working man who doesn't strike it rich? Sure, you can whine about rich scum, and they do exist, but the fact is that rich people are not any more immoral than the rest of us.
