Tbomz, quit smoking crack, that will never happen, makes no sense for the leaders and successful Americans would ever give up or have their total wealth taken from them.
You can't just take the top 1 percents total wealth, that's just insane to even suggest that, we simply have to learn what a budget is and stop the out of control spending. Reduce spending overtime and our debt would go away without communistically taking ones wealth.
If you took all the wealth of the top 1 percent they would all leave the country! Then who else would pay 50 % of the tax revenue?
BROSEPH. WE ARE ALREADY STEALING MONEY FROM PEOPLE. PROBABLY ABOUT A 3RD OF YOUR PAYCHECK, MAYBE AS MUCH AS 1/2. WE ARE ALREADY STEALING PEOPLES MONEY. GET IT THROUGH YOUR HEAD.
now, why not just steal from the mega wealthy instead of stealing from people who are barely getting by and the middle class?
im all for reducing spending. hell, im an anarchist. lets get rid of the government and taxes and spending altogether. but we still need to take care of this debt. i see three options = default, long term payments on the back of the middle class, take it all from the rich. of course we could do something in between those options, but those owuld be the basic parameters. now, why default and ruin the financial system? why put the debt on the backs of the working class?
