The Rise of the Nonworking Rich

http://www.truthdig.com/report/item/the_rise_...

The “self-made” man or woman, the symbol of American meritocracy, is disappearing. Six of today’s ten wealthiest Americans are heirs to prominent fortunes. Just six Walmart heirs have more wealth than the bottom 42 percent of Americans combined (up from 30 percent in 2007).

This is the dynastic form of wealth French economist Thomas Piketty warns about. It’s been the major source of wealth in Europe for centuries. It’s about to become the major source in America – unless, that is, we do something about it.

George W. Bush’s biggest tax breaks helped high earners but they provided even more help to people living off accumulated wealth. While the top tax rate on income from work dropped from 39.6% to 35 percent, the top rate on dividends went from 39.6%(taxed as ordinary income) to 15 percent, and the estate tax was completely eliminated.

Rep. Paul Ryan’s “road map,” which continues to be the bible of Republican economic policy, eliminates all taxes on interest, dividends, capital gains, and estates.

Yet the specter of an entire generation who do nothing for their money other than speed-dial their wealth management advisors isn’t particularly attractive.

What to do? First, restore the estate tax in full.

Second, eliminate the “stepped-up-basis on death” rule. This obscure tax provision allows heirs to avoid paying capital gains taxes on the increased value of assets accumulated during the life of the deceased. Such untaxed gains account for more than half of the value of estates worth more than $100 million, according to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.

Third, institute a wealth tax. We already have an annual wealth tax on homes, the major asset of the middle class. It’s called the property tax. Why not a small annual tax on the value of stocks and bonds, the major assets of the wealthy?

We don’t have to sit by and watch our meritocracy be replaced by a permanent aristocracy, and our democracy be undermined by dynastic wealth. We can and must take action — before it’s too late.

Your hate fueled fantasy has no legs. All it has left is hate. H-A-T-E. That's not name calling. You are wearing it on your sleeve!
Sorry, your HATE fueled fantasy died long ago. It's dead in the real world. It only lives in the Birfoonistan Play World.
Oh my, is the moronic Glotard seeing how many times he can use his favorite word, "hate"? You sound upset, little one. Probably from all that bottled-up anger of yours. LMAO!

I was a professor at three different southern universities, and as I recall, "United States" meant the United States of America in the South as well as in the North.

That's because you're ignorant of southern slang. Hmm, imagine that, 4 out of 10 still support Lil "o". 40%, just like his approval rating! LMAO!!!

They said THEY WOULD NOT SUPPORT THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, never mentioned Obama, DOH. Obama is the duly elected president of the United States, Curly. He is not, nor has he ever declared he IS the United States.

Lost? Original lost? Is that a new twist? Never been mentioned here far as I know. "Curly" LRS (demoted from Moe and Larry) now inventing new "facts". Wonder if he'd care to show us how he unearthed this new "fact".
Prediction : "Curly" LRS will write that he posted it many times and therefore we should find it. He even told me to find the post where I said I hate someone or something though I never did. But he saw it, refuses to produce it.
Who said "lost", DAB? LMAO! I hear LTR is offering a special rate for tards. You should take him up on it. LMAO!!!

I'll see what she thinks of your Wowee Zowee come on line. LMAO!!! I can tell you now, she'll start laughing, as well she should. You're brushed aside with a flick of her wrist! Enjoy your circlejerk buddies! floater

Sorry loser, your fantasies are not based on evidence.

All you got is your fantasy that I am "upset"? That's not evidence, loser.

Pathetic.

6 out of 10 Mississippians are traitorous. Incidentally, "The United States of America" is not southern slang. Get a clue. The United States of America existed before Mississippi was a state.

According to Romper math, 40% of loyal Republicans means 60% of disloyal is false.

What is Romper smoking? The majority of Mississippi Republicans are disloyal to the US.

Jacques,
Realistically, they're saying now that it could take decades to find that missing jet, and that if and when it is found, as luck would have it, by pure chance alone.
They don;t have a clue in the world where that thing is.
Inmarsat was full of bunk when they said they were going to pull a rabbit out of their hat.
12;30 in the morning and they just shot a jet directly over my house.
Who the F**K are those people?

Hawaii said it was destroyed? No - Romper read a spam lie making that claim - Hawaii said no such thing. Poor pathetic Romper clings to Birfoon fables because he can't deal with a semi-black POTUS
