"The Conservative obsession with getting people to pay more in taxes comes from a preoccupation with class warfare in which it is assumed that if middle-class and wealthy people are paying too much in taxes (which they are), then the solution is to punish low-income people by making them pay more in taxes. It’s allegedly not 'fair' if everyone is not being extorted by the state in a similar fashion. The just solution, however, is to greatly decrease the tax burden of those paying taxes now."
