You do realize it's not a 90% tax on the rich, right?  It's 90% on the amount over the 10 Million Dollar cap.  If I make 10M my tax doesn't change.  If I make $10,000,001  I pay 90% on the extra dollar.

And if you make $20 million you pay 90% on $10 million and that's crazy.  The government isn't giving that money to the poor, they're spending it on all the things liberals hate anyway, namely the military (where even half of that gets "lost") and to overpay private contractors.  So I don't understand your point.  It's redistribution of wealth from the very rich and competent to the very rich and incompetent.  

I am in the middle of the road with the taxing percentages.   I do think it needs to be higher for the wealthy based on history, but I am not sure how much.   But, but, but, like rossi said that money is going to be wasted on things like slimy defense contractors and paybacks for lobbyists. It will not be used for things as tax relief for middle class families, infrastructure, roads or legitimate social programs.   So, in my mind, the discussion is moot.
