Why do you believe that having the wealthy pay the same tax rate as the middle class is an assault on freedom?

Don't the wealthy benefit as much or more than the middle class from a government intended to established justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty; a government which allows individuals to use their abilities to gain and hold great wealth?
