WHY SINGAPOREANS WANT THE RICH TO PAY MORE TAX? THEY DESERVE TO ENJOY THEIR WEALTH!

The idea of taking from the haves and giving to the have-nots is noble, but it appears to unfairly penalise the wealthy. To be fair, the wealthy in Singapore have supported many philanthropic causes, without which many who stood to benefit would have been poorer. So why is the focus almost always on the wealthy?
