All I see is a thousand loopholes where fatcats can jump through.
I used to feel this way until I started playing the stock market.
When you start earning more money, either stock market or salary, you start seeing inequities is the way you are treated.
Look into the real facts before you trash people who EARN more money than you do.
Most rich people pay more in taxes than you earn in a year.
Almost no rich people pay zero in taxes. Less than 400.
Almost half of the population (lower earners) pay no taxes.
Donate far more in cash to charities than you spend on clothes per year.
If someone pays 30K in taxes why is it fair...
That they have to drive the same crappy roads as everyone else.
Their trash is picked up once a week like everyone else.
Stand in the same lines at the DMV or any gov office.
Are denied free legal counsel.
Almost no one was handed wealth. They got off their asses and earned their way to the top. You (and I) could have done the same thing but you spent
your (and my) youth drinking beer with your buddies or just chilling out.
Try the stock market you will learn far more than just stocks.
