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


It's fascinating how Cuomo gave such a long impassioned speech about revenue declining, without once mentioning costs that could be trimmed. All they want is MORE MONEY.

Perhaps we should allow one of their socialist initiatives to be activated? Let Americans experience the full force of a Progressive belief.

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.


You are correct.... the "Plan" to tax the higher income is really to tax the s#it out of our 401K's.

Then that money goes to funding wars to secure resources and oppress masses.

Well there is at least one honest answer here.

Doesn't seem like that will solve a whole lot though huh?

They give it to themselves.
Create slush funds for the next election
cycle to keep themselves/and friends
in power and feeding at the taxpayer trough.

"Tax the Rich" is really a buzzword for
Tax The Middle Class, to kick up to the rich
and kick enough down to the poor to keep them
complacent and secure their vote.

Trust U.S. we know these things.

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.


Well said, the trouble with sociopaths though is they aren’t doing anything wrong in their own eyes. We don’t have competition in the west anymore, all we have is cronyism.

How about nobody pays taxes then? Get rid of government altogether, why not?

I’m gearing up for civil war myself, Rich vs poor bring it on bastards.

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.


If they have the financial incentive to do that, it has already been done. Look at how many tax havens there are around the world. If they have the financial incentive to relocate the business to China, it has already been done.

If their main customers and business is here in the US, then they will stay.

I would be ok with taxing the ones that have lobbyists on their payroll or have a close relationship with politicians.

It should be made costly to purchase politicians.


Of course politicians would never do such a thing since it would be cutting their own throats.

If nobody paid taxes, it would not be the ones at the bottom of the totem pole that would suffer. Think of all crony contracts, pork barrel spending, military, medicare and so on that would suffer.

Why are we still spending so much with Republicans in power?
Because their cronies would have to take a hit.

Ya that won't solve crap. Just grandstanding and propaganda that both sides can use to push an agenda.
I am all for taxing the rich but at the same time doing so won't gift me any benefits so really my opinion makes no difference. TAX them or don't my life will not change.
BTW Dan is that you?!?

Middle class is dead, the rich don't need em anymore. This is a global 24hr economy, they'll just go straight to the the low income wagers and keep em there. Maximize that margin, cuz, you know, gotta pay taxes if you can't avoid it.

Wait a minute, we can!
We'll just offshore some of that untaxed profits, move it all around then you do the hoky poky and you spread the wealth around. NOT

Tax the rich. Make tax evasion a form of treason and outsourcing corporate assets a form of intentional economic sabotage. Outlaw corporate political interference, donations and lobbying.

Then spend the money on stuff. But not more than you have

Can someone define what "Rich" means?

I would consider my father rich, he is one of "those old rich white guys" that used "White Privilege" to only take 5 sick days in 60 years of working (for an inguinal hernia) and getting rich quick by saving 50 cents of each dollar earned . He has about a million in assets and saving. He never took a handout from anyone even though he was disabled (blind in the right eye)

Yeah, he should give up his wealth so someone can "share the wealth" without any effort because of skin tone
