Straw poll

Robin and Pat both have incomes of $50,000,000 in 2011 (net of all applicable deductions). Robin's income came from winning a multi-state lottery. Pat's income came from the business she runs.

 

Poll #1832887 Tax question!

Who should pay more in taxes?

Robin, the lottery winner, should pay more
1(7.1%)
Pat, the business person, should pay more
1(7.1%)
They should pay the same amount
12(85.7%)

 

Bonus question: why do you think the two should or should not be taxed at equal levels?
