the top 1% already pay more than 1/4 of the nation's income tax.

That really does sum up what I am on about. Just consider how much they have left after paying their taxes. Do you really think and extra few pence on their tax will make a difference to their lives? Will they not be able to afford to buy food or medicine or heat their home? If they are contributing 25% of the total tax revenue, just how much do you think they are earning?
