On progressive taxation

Just a simple scenario for you to think about.  Feel free to share it around.

If you took a second full time job doing the same work for the same wage, and thus worked twice as many hours in the week (80), you would earn twice as much money.  Are you "benefiting more from the economy" or "contributing more to the economy"?  Should you get hit with a higher tax rate because you put in twice as many hours?
