Sounds like a great idea! Let’s apply that in the US to Hollywood and professional athletes.

If you have been reading the latest news, the new tax was applied to employers of those with large salaries after a court said it could not be levied directly on individuals.

The new tax takes effect in the new year and has driven many wealthy French people to find homes outside the country in places like London.
