It's very saddening and deflating to read this sort of stuff, even though I always suspected as much from the so called 'elites' of this world.
Lower class people like myself grind out a full work week, making small pay, and still give around 20-25% of our already measly earnings to uncle sam
when that 20% would make a huge difference in my life.
(I literally have to constantly decide which bills are most urgent/which ones will have to wait, and which part of my car most urgently needs
fixing/which problems will have to wait..all due to lack of funds.)
These ultra wealthy however, not only use these stupid loopholes every which way they can, they are doing it in order to save enough money to add
another yacht to their flotilla, another mansion to their collection, or another private jet to add to their own private airport. To live in this way
is completely abhorrent, disgusting, and inexcusable. If these scum of the earth don't change their ways and aren't forced comply with any sort of
level playing field, then gap between the have and have-nots will just increase until we're in a 1984 type scenario.
Granted, I don't endorse taxing the rich to death and I understand that they already do pay the lions share of taxes in this country. However,
it's absolutely sickening when honest lower income people always make sure to pay their share and meanwhile these global elite, who already have
more money than god, apparently still don't feel that it's enough and they hide their money in tax havens in order to hoard more of their wealth which
has long since reached a degree of disgusting gluttony and exorbitance
