I'm sure Bill Gates pays more in taxes in one year than you will in your entire lifetime yet receives no more benefits from the State than you do.
Is that fair?
He should at least get a statue of him placed somewhere.

I wish our broke ass government froze all of their accounts like they did to Mubarak and Gaddafi. Then, they should seize all but a couple billion dollars for each person, or force them to donate most of it to the states in which they live in to improve the standard of living for its citizens and the infrastructure.
OR, they could pass a law against hoarding. Some like they can only hold 4-5 billion dollars at any given time. The rest must be spent, given away, or invested constantly to improve the economy.
Now I am pretty sure that what make our government some sorta of huge, Nazi-Communist-Socialist state with supreme authority, which I am against, and the elite would probably immediately implode the country and flee, but for god sakes something has to be done about these hoarding bastruds! Nobody needs that much money.

I wonder what they want the cash for, or if they have just bought everything they want and have no need to spend the cash.

Some English guy said it very well " Money is like muck (manure) its no good unless it is spread around" Just what is the point in gathering all that money into bank accounts? the principal would never get spent, let alone the interest, just does not make sense to me.
Most of that wealth is inherited, its not 'earned' at all.
