My wife and I make a combined household income somewhere close to $200K per year and we live in California where the state taxes us through the nose. We're not as well off as those in the top 2%, but I'd have no problem paying higher federal taxes for the good of this country and its citizens. I certainly wish more of the uber-wealthy weren't so greedy and felt the same way. I believe it SHOULD cost more to live in a great place and I believe the US is worth it.
