Millionaires have private healthcare, private schools & don't use public transport yet pay higher tax?
Doing an analysis, this is what the rich don't need:
Family & Children - 21.6 billion
Unemployment - £9.8 billion
Local public transport - 0.7 billion
(I haven't included trains, rich people use trains)
(I haven't included roads, rich people use roads)
Health Services (minus the research and development - rich guys need that too) - £122 billion
Primary + Secondary = £22.5 billion
(I have included tertiary education. Rich people go to universities)
There is plenty more rich people don't use, but for easyness lets assume they do.
So thats at least £176.6 billion unused by rich people.
This represents at least 34.7% of the budget unused by the rich. So why is their tax rate HIGHER? Surely it should be at most the same. And the public perception is that they should be paying even more??? Why is this? The more meager earners have a pretty good deal already.
