I think thats a really interesting question. You would never get it of course but logically speaking tax should be a fixed amount shouldnt it ? Not a percentage. so someone earning 50,000chf and someone earning 5 million CHF would pay the same fixed amount because they each use the state services on average a fixed amount.
Arguably (and almost certainly demonstrably, but I can't be bothered doing any research ), the rich would - by far - use "state services" less than the poor.
