"Oh, I can support folks at the top paying their fair share," Castro told ABC News' "This Week" on Sunday when asked directly whether he could endorse the high-profile New York Democrat's idea.
"Their fare share" being 9/10ths of everything they make. Got it.
Economic illiteracy seems to be a built-in feature of socialism.
90 % is fair share. This guy has the perfect last name.

There are memes about 90% tax rate in the 50’s all over social media.

(Democrats kill babies and harvest their organs to sell)
These people must know the ramifications of this (loss of jobs etc) but they don’t care because it might get them elected due to the “stupidity of the American people”.

Yes what exactly is the fair share?
The top 10% of wage earners pay something like 85% of all personal Income tax. Is that not a fair share?
Not defending it...but this is the marginal tax rate, not a tax on every dollar someone earns. For example, it might be 90% over anything over 1M dollars earned or whatever the govt. decides the figure would be.
Some people already pay such amounts... it is s special direct tax called child support or spousal support.

("the media are selling you a line of soap)
Fidel Castroism is alive and well in Texas and New Mexico.
Time to mark the American Castro brothers for who they really are, Marxists without the beards.
And when you bankrupt the most productive individuals in society, whose enterprises create jobs for the rest of society, then what moron? You want to take most of the money away from the job-creators and redistribute it, without any qualifications, to the least productive individuals, leaving little capital to create jobs for the top producers.
Sounds like complete idiocy to me. Do us all a favor, move to Venezuela and take your idiot girlfriend with ya.
