If two people both commit tax evasion, but one person earns 100,000 a year and another earns 50,000 a year, should the two people both face the same penalty?
It should reflect the amount of taxes evaded, so yes the punishment should be the same, but that doesnt mean the amounts will be.
So going 21 mph in a 20 mph school zone should be punished just the same as going 90 mph in a school zone?
What if you are assaulted twice? The first time a guy punches you and bloodies your nose. The second guy assaults you and cracks 6 ribs, knocks out 8 teeth, fractures your jaw in 3 places, and breaks you nose? Two assaults same punishment?
Of COURSE they should receive the same penality ...duh
They both evaded tax once.
