Much of what the government spends money on does more harm than good; this is particularly true over the past several years with the massive uncontrolled increase in government spending. I believe my business and non-profit investments are much more beneficial to societal well-being than sending more money to Washington.
- Charles Koch’s response to Warren Buffet
I agree with Mr. Koch.
RE: If you TAKE money from a millionaire and GIVE to a poor guy for nothing, the millionaire will eventually run out of money.
I don’t think these people want to bankrupt the millionaires by confiscating their wealth. They want them to pay their “fair share” ( whatever that means to them ).
To most of them, that means INCREASING THEIR MARGINAL TAX RATES.
That it will do zip for the economy or the deficit is beside the point.
