Tax the rich! tax the rich! 100% above $250,000

Here Walter Williams explains how damned stupid that is...it doesn`t no where near "solve the problem".   Liberals may or may not read it but either their curuit breakers will trip or they will become conservative....I`m betting on their curuit breakers tripping   Smiley Happy

 

But look, I hate and are jealous of rich people too, I feel you liberal`s pain, but my hatred of rich people doesn`t trump my common sense.

liberals as a rule are not cerebral specimens. And those that actually have a marble or two tend to get emotional and just switch off the intellect when it comes to actual issues.

What a stupid arguement. Just because taxing them 100% would not resolve the budget deficit tjhat is not a solid argument against taxing them more. Taxing million dollar incomes at 40% would not be a painful as taxing a $50k income at 30%. What a shock that taxes might be a bit painful for the affluent. They still start out with all the deductions offer to lower income folks and their SS tax goes into recess at $110K while those that make less than that max pay SS on every earned dollar.

 

And capital gains income are given preferential treatment over ordinary income.  Those income categories are given preferential treatment because they are job creators that may or may not ever create a job. In fact many of those businesses are intent on lowering labor costs including wages and benefits. Why reward the affluent if they are out to screw over their employees.

 

Perhaps labor should not be a deductable item unless it exceeds $10 per hour. And anything over $1 million in salaries plus stock options should not be deductable. The way it is the CEO's are rewarded for stiffing those that do the work.

Warren Buffet can't pay enough taxes to balance the budget. Therefore, we shouldn't tax him at all. Republican't philosophy!

So how much more than 100% would you tax them, Shifty?

You're kind of slow.

 

Did you have to send an emergency alert to your handlers so they could run something through the crap-o-matic and come up with a straw man you could knock down?
