It's not about who can afford what. I think looking at it percentage-wise is important. Let's, just for example, use 20% as a number. 20% of a middle class persons salary would obviously be less than 20% of the upper class. They shouldn't both pay the same amount.
You realize that we have a tiered federal tax income system, right? As in, the more you make, the higher percentage you pay? I mean, it works out to be something like the richest 1% pay half the federal income taxes and the poorest 1% pay 0 of those taxes.
