    Those who earn more should pay more... The government needs to man up and tax the wealthy more instead of continually screwing over low to middle income who can least afford it

    Never mind the fact that the top 10% of taxpayers pay more than 45% of all income tax. Lets just tax them more! Why not just tax them so they are paying 100% of the income tax so that the rest of us don't have to?

    If you think the top 10 % actually pay anything like that once their accountants get started your mistaken. Yes they should pay more when they earn hundreds of thousands more than the average person.

    We're missing a datapoint here. What percentage of total gross income does that 10% earn?

    From BRW - “Because most of their income comes from investments, billionaires like Rinehart, Clive Palmer and Andrew Forrest pay a much lower proportional tax rate than the average Australian family,”

    Doesn't seem fair.
