Well, more because the rich invest, and the investment money is used to make loans to business, so when investment money is less due to taxes, jobs dry up. Also, purchasing. More taxes means less purchasing so goods don't sell so jobs are cut.

Or the whole fallacy of taxing the rich more; which typically translates into higher taxes for the poor.

It's also not fair to the rich, either.

That's my take on it, at least.
