Republicans Don't Like Class Warfare

Republicans led by US Rep. Paul Ryan are decrying the idea of setting a progressive income tax standard around a so-called "Buffet Rule" whereby those making more than $1M per year must be taxed at at least the same rate as those in middle class brackets.

“Class warfare will simply divide this country more. It will attack job creators, divide people and it doesn’t grow the economy,” Rep. Paul Ryan said on FOX News Sunday. “Class warfare may make for really good politics, but it makes for rotten economics.”
This tells us that what we need is a fully regressive tax system in order to grow the economy and create jobs.  Let's cut the job-creating wealthy class taxes to zero and we'll see all sorts of quality jobs created due to all of this extra walking-around capital:

- Yacht captains
- Dog groomers
- Landscapers
- Horse groomsmen
- Life coaches
- etc.

If we tax those paychecks at 80%, we'll solve the deficit problem in no time flat!  Perhaps we can bring back feudalism, and cut the wasteful government taxation middleman out of the picture altogether.
