Skip to comments.Why Not Tax The Rich ???

From what I read, most of the very rich are liberal d'RAT's. Most of the politicians in Congress and Senate are multimillionaires. They out number Republicans by large numbers. Even the president is a multi-millionaire. Bill Gates, George Soros, and all those whacky movie-queens are millionaires. Nancy Polcat, Harry Inbreed are millionaires. Donald Trump and Mitt Romney are not liberal d'RAT's but they are a small minority. So, when all these liberal d'RAT's scream, 'Hate the Filthy Rich', all they are doing is screaming, 'Hate our Filthy Butts'. Why not just let them screw themselves? Most Republicans are small property and business owners trying to earn a living and not filthy rich.
Zero’s friends won’t have to pay it. Count on it.
One big reason: They will build in a way out, a way to escape any of the new taxes.
F U and your little pony u rode in on.
We are all the rich to the Dems but I think you know that
Republicans get huge political donations. The money has to be coming from somewhere.
Nickel-and-dimers do not add up to $1 billion in presidential races.
Besides, the Republicans do not want to make Wall Street angry.
The really rich folk have places to hide it and shelter it from taxes.
Which means they’ll be going after a lower definition of the word rich.
Which means goodbye jobs.
Of course not. Anyone who thinks the Congress will not leave large loopholes for themselves and their friends are fools. Fools elected Obama, so these fools believe the rich will be taxed. Its all a part of the Obama plan to seperate Americans.
The rich will stay rich and the Middle class will become the new poor.
“Most Republicans are small property and business owners trying to earn a living and not filthy rich.”
Yeah, and no thanks - we don’t need to pay i either.
I had no idea that currently the Rich are exempt from Taxation. When did that happen?
The very wealthy have gotten their money around the confiscatory tax system. There is currently no tax on wealth, only income. Many of the wealthy are ELITISTS who want the tax system to prevent current earners from becoming wealthy and challenging their elitism.
Generally speaking because it establishes a bar that is then used to raise taxes on the near~rich, the next~to~rich, and the almost~rich.
You’re right that bunches of very wealthy are also dhimmicrats, that the rich-left will easily obtain waivers of one form or another, and that the rich have more resources to pour into buying tax shelters.
So it is the principle of equitable taxation that pubbies promote.
I don’t think the current set up will tax them. the middle class will be taxed, but the really wealthy will get out of it.
Tax loopholes, tax free investments, etc. , etc.
They write the laws so what makes you think the wouldn’t make use of all the gaping holes in the tax code. They don’t like free enterprise or anything they can’t control. That’s what it’s all about.
Yeah, from working people, or people who have spent a lifetime building a business.
Now explain where the democrats get their money. Welfare cards? Food stamp donations? How can the dems rake in millions from a base that has no income (other than what they can get their politicians to steal for them)?
The over $200,000 crowd voted for Obama in 2008.
The rich are pretty liberal and even the republican rich tend to be only conservative on economics.
Kill the Rich, redistribute their money and property to those the Government deems worthy, problem solved.
Because (just for starters) it will further depress the economy and cause even more job losses. And, because we live in Oceania and Big Brother’s Ministry of Truth is working on steroids. Obama’s proposal to “tax billionaires” would, in actual fact, fall mostly on small local businesses like cleaners, diners, quickiemarts, who would have to lay off more workers, raise the prices of everything we buy, or close down . There is in actual truth no proposal to just “tax the rich,” we are being lied to each and every day about obama’s actual proposal. Since there is no real “tax the rich” proposal on offer, your question lacks relevance.
There is no annual wealth tax (’cept property taxes), only income tax.
