Fair enough. I'll concede my error.

But, it's only a difference in percentages in the aggregate; we are all subject to the same tax brackets, just some of us don't have anything but a zero in the top ones. That's equal treatment, in my opinion, not "punishment" directed towards the richest wage earners.
