With her Instagram response, Louise Linton, at a 2014 Grey Goose promotional event in Scotland, has opened the door for a discussion on a progressive tax system.


Martin Grimes/Getty Images for Grey Goose When Linton highlighted her designer clothing and accessories (which together cost more than $13,000, as Vanity Fair estimated ) after a trip to Kentucky with her husband, user jennimiller29 responded, "Glad we could pay for your little getaway."


Linton, in turn, handed her taunters more ammunition, condescending to jennimiller29 ("Your life looks cute") and insulting that user for making less money than she does.


"If everyone were the same and you had some kind of utility measure like a thermometer, you come up with an ideal system where the burden is the same for everybody," said Leonard Burman, director of the Tax Policy Center.
