  •  Good Riddance to Freeloaders (3+ / 0-)

    The people who claim that taxing more will make them not work to make the extra income are lying - they already will work around the clock forever just to keep a few percent more in lower taxes some year down the road. And if they do refuse to work more, that just leaves those lazy rich people out of the competition for that extra work and its income. Which means more opportunity for the people working hard further down the income scale, better incented by lower tax rates in their bracket.

    And if the rich people really don't like it, and move out of the country, that would be awesome. We'd have less expenses delivering services to them here in America, but they still have to pay taxes from abroad like every American citizen must for life. If they renounce citizenship, then good riddance. Their slots in the American economy will be eagerly replaced by people actually invested in this country, not just its rigged casino financial markets.

    Bring it on!
