It would be interesting to know how much additional revenue this 5% surcharge would bring in. Has anyone done the calculations?

I think it would come out to no more than $10 - 20 billion. Negligible compared to the drunken sailor deficit spending of the Democrat Federal Government.

Democrats who are talking about millionaire taxes such as Reid are trying to divert discussion from cutting spending, where the real problem is. There is no way a millionaire tax can make a significant dent on the deficit.
