I'm a small business owner who started his business with less than $2000. I worked 70+ hours a week to start my business and took no paycheck for the first 2 years. (living on my wife's salary) after this I took $500/mo for a year, then $1000/mo for a year, $2000/mo.... I now make a decent wage that puts me in the top 5% of wage earners. 8 years later after sacrificing I'm an overnight success and should be taxed more. What about when I was alone working for free??
The best way I can help my community is to create jobs and help others succeed.
Without the opportunity to work hard and have a chance to get into the top 1%, why would I make these sacrifices to try and win? If I don't have this chance I would live mediocre and work 40 hours a week. What an average and bland life that would be... hey we can all be mediocre!
