I'm a big fan of a flat-rate percentage tax, not a "sliding scale".
I realized that yeah, I paid more in tax this year than I made at my
first real job. I'm almost making in two weeks, what I made a *month*
five-six years ago. and my "standard of living" isn't really even
higher!  
 well, i did buy that 51" TV in September, and the dual-cpu G4 with
my $JOB-1 severance check in December '02.. but it was my first ever
brand-new, off-the-shelf computer..
 well, i got married too. that should explain some of it..
