It was earned

Why should the rich pay more in taxes if the money to pay for that vacation home and maid was earned, inherited, won, found or how ever legally acquired? Do the rich get a pass to the front of the line if they need government services? Since I pay a high tax rate on my truck, cars and motorcycles can I zoom to the front at the DMV? Do the rich get a faster police response time? Can you imagine private industry implementing that plan? "Well Mr. Jones, the price of the washer you want will depend on how much you earn. Can I see your check stub?" But if you worked hard to gain wealth the government wants to take it away. Where is the government going to get its funding when everybody decides to quit working, stop paying in and files for welfare, food stamps and all the other "free" programs?
