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.

My point is taking money out of the economy to put back into the economy does nothing good for the economy.
If instead money is used to pay people for real work (as opposed to gov't make-work programs or outright handouts) then something of value is created.
THAT is good for the economy.
Economy is more than moving money around. It has a purpose. Leftists don't get that.
