Ok, here it is, the big question that liberals will ALWAYS deflect from.

Tax the rich, then what?

You take all that money, then what? What do you do with it? Where does that tax money go? What do we do with it?

Now, keep in mind, I asked a valid question so I expect valid answers.

That is all.

You could take every penny the rich have, every last cent.

And you could fund the federal government for a few months. Thats pretty cool right?

You tax the rich.

The rich leave, taking their companies with them.

Then you have to tax who is left, what we call the middle class.

Who don't have any job opportunities now.

Then, as Margarete Thatcher said, you run out of other people's money.

Then your economy collapses, your society collapses, your country collapses.

Then they offer a solution.

It's called tyranny.

Take the money to get rid of the lobbyists, get rid of the laws creating cartels and monopolies, and restore free markets to wring out the inefficiencies of exorbitant CEO compensation packages.

Take all of the money?

That's not how it will work. People with that level of means will simply take their own money right out of the country. There will be nothing for the government to take.

That's been my thought all along. Its not like giving your employees a raise or is it. Hmm, higher wages for the congress people, more quirks paid for from us tax payers?

Actually the rich are humans, they don't want the congress to take all their money and squander it foolishly.

Personally the less you tax the wealthy the more money gets thrown into the economy, but the Dems don't want you to understand it.

Why not tax all the poor people 70% and see how they like it.

The real money is in the middle class. If you can tax them... you have a serious income.

The rich aint where its at man.

Let them take their companies with them! Good riddance!! I'm pretty confident the American people have a knack for having commerce which is probably only equal to the urge to copulate.

Governor CUOMO sounded the alarm in New York yesterday. Tax revenues are plummeting because the RICH are leaving. He said the top 1% of income earners/corporations are now paying 46% of collected tax revenue, and they're getting sick of it.

It's almost "Hammer Time" for New York's middle class: buffalonews.com...

Propaganda BS. During Clinton's second term we had a budget surplus with his tax policies.

So your solution is to use other people's money to eliminate the money problem in politics...

Excuse me while I go outside and sigh...

That's a different problem. Local government is corrupt as can possible be.

What the uneducated doesn't realize is that the rich actually build a strong economy that the "middle class" does the work for them.
But, congresses job is to keep its people dumbfounded and not think like them jerks.
