    That is not an accurate statement. It is similar to me saying that those on a disability pension don't have a disability. Most do, but some don't.
    Er, I am assuming that you don't actually even know anyone with a disability do you, it is almost impossible to falsely claim disability, even if someone is disabled it is very, very difficult to get.

    It is not impossible, and your assumption is wrong.

    I do not know how you have some to your figure of 17%. The next tax rate beyond 37% is 45%. You are misrepresenting the tax rates by saying that they only pay 17%. The tax rate is what it is. If those 'mega rich' have losses, which does happen, then they can claim deductions. But when they 'win', they are taxed at the appropriate rate.

    What percentage do you personally think is fair? And how did you come to that percentage?

    You can stand by it. I know first hand an individual who is in this situation. And he is the only person I know that is on the DSP.

    DO you mean you know someone routing the system? One wonders why you wouldn't tell on them?
