If wealthy unwilling ot pay their share of income tax whay not Lux VAT tax?

If we cant increase the direct income tax of the 40% GDP (5% wealthiest) then we should treat high-end luxury goods like cigarettes and tax the heck out of them. ( 40% federal yacht and Cessna airplane tax) 40% tax on wine with a value higher then $300.00 per bottle, house property worth 1.5 million or more etc. When I say wealthy not paying their share I am saying in terms of percentage to income.

I love all this Lib fair share crap. 40% of the US population not only doesn't pay federal income taxes but gets money they DID NOT pay into the system handed to them. They need to pay THEIR fair share. How about a "baby you can't afford baby daddy ain't got a job stop having babies already you dumba$$" tax?

We should pay tax on what we spend. Those who delight in claiming poor status shouldn;t have a problem with that.
