Yes we would mostly all pay a little more... but the asshats in congress wouldn't be paying 15% while the rest of us are paying higher percentage brackets. Everyone would be paying the same percentage, which is fair.
It is difficult to define "fair" in this context. But I suspect a very large majority would prefer a graduated/progressive tax system. There were plenty of extremely rich people even when the top bracket was 90%..
