Make a flat tax of 40% of all income over $100,000 per individual, no deductions.
I'd be glad to listen to arguments for and against the particular numbers, but I think this is reasonable way to go about it. Flat rate over a set dollar amount (which would be adjusted for inflation). Or maybe two levels even -- say, something like X% over $100,000, Y% over $1,000,000.
