I don't really see a connection between progressive and "fair".

If anything "fair" would fall between the continuum of progressive and regressive. At the extremes, a progressive plan would have the wealthiest paying all taxes, with the poorest paying nothing, or even getting money back. Regressive would be opposite, with the poorest paying all the taxes, and the wealthiest paying nothing.

Somewhere between those extremes "fair" would be found.
