There should be an 80% tax on all personal assets over $3 Million because $3 Million is the accepted savings needed for a comfortable
And with life expectancy growing each year who is to say how much anyone will need?
You want income equality? Go get a better job. Go be an entrepreneur. Stop looking to others to fix your money issues.
AGREED. I don't make more than I do now because of my own choices. I'm not expecting 'equality' on that unless I EARN IT.
Sure a CEO is gonna make 32k for running a multi-billion dollar company they either built or made choices that landed them that job - riiiiight.
If the company can and will pay it, who is anyone else to say 'it's too much' and force some BS 'executive order' BS down their throats..not
every company will cow like GM did.
Personally, I see some CEOs making EGREGIOUS amounts of money and don't know how the companies can sustain that rate of pay...I'd personally not pay
them that...but if the company wants to and can pay them that- then it's THEIR money, THEIR company. If it upsets me, I can choose to take my
business elsewhere - as can anyone else.
Taxing fixes NOTHING. The don't need more tax, they need to figure out how to spend what they're already collecting more responsibly. We give them
more, they demand more - for basically lying, cheating on top of not doing their jobs they were sworn to do. Like being a slave, well this is pretty
much what the proposal is....
[disclaimer, I make nowhere near the amounts they want to ding for an extra 30% tax, but it does upset me that these greedy, self-serving politicians
have the NERVE to even talk like this in a serious manner. I care about my money and the money of others and wanting each of us to keep all that we
can. We have to be responsible with our money, or we go bankrupt, we can't just demand more money from the employer because of our own
mismanagement...what makes these politicians think they can??!?]
