f You Can’t Have Wealth Taxes, You Don’t Have a Country

Apr 2012
We're allowing our infrastructure to deteriorate. We pay more for health care than any other country. There are so many things we're doing assbackwards in order to bend over backwards for the wealthy. It is one of the biggest reasons we have such a ridiculously high debt. And the average person knows that they're not getting value for their tax money and that's why they hate on government. Give people value for their tax money instead of giving the wealthy tax breaks.

I don't know why I'm bothering to explain this to you because you won't comprehend it.
Then the government is the problem. Let the democrats work on those things instead of just doing investigations and impeachment.

More democrat BS. The tax cuts allowed the largest tax coming into the government in history
Uh huh sure, kinda like tariffs are paying for his stupid trade war on China when US Taxpayers have now spent almost three times what the auto bailouts cost in subsidies.

This piece is an interesting argument about how to go about taxing wealth at a rate that helps sustain, maintain and and help our country progress. Essentially, we need to enter into agreements with the rest of the world that reduces the number of tax havens so that the super rich have no choice but to pay their taxes. The lax tax laws that the wealthy have been functioning under since the 80s have been a big reason why we have such high debt. Insisting that our meager social safety net is the cause is absurd.

The author also points out how a majority of Americans think the wealthy don't pay enough in taxes but because of the concentration of wealthy in the hands of a few those few have an outsized influence over our government and our elected officials who write laws that benefit the few to the detriment of the many. And because policies and laws that would benefit the average American are ignored for the sake of the few, Americans have come to hate government because it doesn't work for them. I don't see how anyone could argue that most of our economic growth has benefited the wealthy in a far greater way than it has the vast majority of Americans and a big reason for that is the fact that the wealthy pay so little in taxes.
