So, its tax day.
And you know what that means: its the day we celebrate the redistribution of wealth rather than its creation. Its the day the government decides how much of what you make belongs to them - to give to somebody else. Or more to the point, its the day the have lots ante up for the benefit of the have gotz.
It should be interesting to see how Presidentin-waiting Hillary, champion of the proletariat, celebrates the day. She will most likely emphasize the the income gap between the haves and the have nots because nothing stirs the heart to action like a good old fashioned class war.
Before proceeding I request that we stipulate to one fact: America does NOT have a class system - a social order in which your future status is proscribed by the class you were born into. Despite ongoing efforts to kill it, the American Dream is still possible; you can rise from poverty to become rich and powerful. If that were not the case Bubba and Hilz (est. net worth $55 million) would not be members of the 1% club today.
Whod a thunk?
Nor would Barry and Lady M (est. net worth $12 million, so far) be assured an entry card to the 1% as soon as they leave office.
We so earned this!
Since income inequality for Progressives has come to represent the source of all evil and the root cause for the worlds social, racial and economic problems, thats where Hilz will be mining her gold:
Striking a populist note, Clinton, who announced on Sunday she was running for president in 2016, said American families were still facing financial hardship at a time when the average CEO makes about 300 times what the average worker makes.
Americans have fought their way back from tough economic times. But the deck is still stacked in favor of those at the top. (i.e. Bill and Hill)
I guess we have Barack Obama to thank for that; after six and a half years of trying to level the playing field, heres all we have to show for it:
The top 20% of taxpayers are still paying 84% of taxes!
And the top 10% pay nearly 70% of taxes! I wonder how much more Hilz thinks she and Bubba should pay? This should prove to be interesting.

The top 1% are now paying 50% of the taxes in this country. When will they wise up and leave? The bottom 60% pay a measly 15% of the taxes, while smoking up the entitlement benefits.
People who don’t pay taxes should not vote. Representation without taxation leads to the death of democracies. Example: Greece.
