Well it’s not intentional. Put it this way:
Someone who makes $500,000 grand a year is probably taxed at like 35%(i’m guessing, i have know idea), leaving him with $325,000 for the year.
Someone who makes $30,000 grand a year is taxed at 24%, leaving hime with $22,800 for the year.
Now it seems clear to me that the guy who made more money, paid more in taxes, so if there’s a tax cut across the board, the guy who paid more should get more from a tax cut. What is so wrong about this? Why do those who make less complain that the tax cut is for the rich? If you had won the lottery or have gotten a nice inheritence, you’d be singin’ a different tune about Bush’s tax cut.
Look, I made like $23,000 last year. I don’t care that the rich would benefit more because hey, they paid more, their in a higher tax bracket. If I made a million bucks last year and paid a lot in taxes, I would expect more in return for a tax cut. But because I didn’t, I don’t expect to receive more because I paid very little into taxes.
If I’ve got this wrong correct me. But the idea is still the same. Pay little, get little. Pay more, get more. If i’d make a million bucks next year, I do not want the tax money owed to me going to someone who didn’t work as hard for that money.
