I'm not sure I understand what you're saying.
Reap the rewards of having large influence (political and otherwise) because of their income. And even still often times don't pay anywhere near the tax that their income would put them in. They might be in a high tax bracket - that does not mean that is what they pay.
The bottom line is the people in the MIDDLE are whats supporting this country tax wise - its not the top and its not the bottom... neither of those is more of a problem than the other.
