Why not have the same income tax for the rich which is by no fault of theirs that they get to earn more than others?

Bala ah Bala..

This is on pretext that wealthy help create jobs.. But most wealthy ppl here only park money and buy properties to stay in while earning income passively elsewhere

It always amuse me on why should the capable and hard working folk be punished for those who r incapable and lazy.

U have the ability and willing to work for it, u enjoy the success.
If u don't have the ability nor willing to work for it, it is ur own fault.
Simple.

Singapore is not a welfare state and it should never be one.

One reason to do this is to keep the rich on their tippy toes. If not, the wealth will flow down to their offsprings and over time, create a perpetual class of have and
havenots. At which point, the majority havenots will still kick out the minority ruling elite.

One way or another, societies always find a way to level itself. This is from observing thousands of years of civilizations!
