Question seeking answers: What would be the effect if the top earners in this country took their money and left?
I don't think it is being proposed in this country to raise the tax rate to 50% on anyone.

You dn't want to discuss poltics, you wish to aggrivate "Sassy", so...I have decided to treat you the same way you treat myself and others. You don't seem to like it....and neither does your buddy "Willard" ! Well that's just too bad. You post non-stop insults and then ask why others are insulting. You report page after page of posts, then wonder why posters treat you with disdain... I TRY to treat others as I wish to be treated, but I fall short in the turn the other cheek stuff. You it would seem, are great at dishing it out but you can't take it can you ? CHUCKLES !!
You don't talk politics,you bash people who you think you can put to shame.As for her,you bring her up in EVERY POST.Now stop.
I don't like your attitude because you see yourself as superior.
Again,you like to show yourself up as the brilliant one.Political debating is nothing you know about.You like the other need to LEARN to respect the other person's views and like her YOU DO NOT.The Democratic party is not your sole party.It's America's party,same for Republican.Treat them respectfully.

Very little. You wouldn't even know they were gone, if somebody didn't tell you!
All they've done is take from this Country, for so long...I'm kinda wondering what you think would be so devastating about them leaving?

It is hard to "look up" something that doesn't exist. If you find anywhere that there is a current proposal to raise the tax rate to 50% on anyone, you let us know.

Well said OT, and it looks like others agree as well. Willard, Mary Ann, AND Carol will all have to furiously judge to make it look otherwise... HEE-HEE !
Ya know, speaking of Mary Ann and Carol, I have to wonder if he is squeezing them for their 10% along with his other followers on Sunday or if they are all one and the same?
With all of these "followers", he must have much charismatic authority.

Am I the only One who thinks he just does a bunch of double-talk? Some of his sentences with the most obscure words that very few People ever use, just do NOT make sense!

They didn't leave when Clinton raised it to 39%, but they would leave if Obama raised it to 39%?

Treat those parties respectfully right ?? Well how many posts have you typed with the word democrap in them ? With two more brains you would be an idiot.

Just so you won't be wrong all the time..... "Sassy" there I brought her up ! Chuckles !!

Traveling to another country from London takes an hour. You can't get to Nashville from here in an hour. The millionaires in the U.S. wouldn't leave the country...their money already resides outside of the country anyway.

They didnt leave when the rate was 39% they didn't leave when the rate was 50% under Reagan and they didn't leave when the rate was 91% under Ike. The people predicting a mass move out of the country by the waelthy are the same tea party types that promised to leave if Obama got reelected....none of them are packing their bags either ! I have never seen so many people so obsessed with a 4% tax hike on incomes over 250k when 99 percent of them will not earn 250k in 4 years.
Personally I don't care if they leave the rate at 35% as long as they treat capital gains as ordinary income, and make it subject to payroll taxes.

That's just silly.

39-39.5% would be fine...as it was under the prosperous years of the Clinton administration. That would STILL be lower than it was under most of Reagan's 8 years.

Yep, there have been some real knee slappers today. Some of my favorites are:

"them being unable to post without mentoioning me"

"To mention my name is totally stupid"

"A total waste of space he takes up. Not his business who likes who unlss he's jealous.He is an instigator."

"Wold you tell me why you do personaql assaulting to posters?"

I hope Obamacare opens some of the state mental facilities back up because I think we have let too many of them out. The state could save money by letting her and willard share a room.

Unfortunately, OA, you're probably right...about some of them, anyway. Although, my News Headlines are saying that more and more of the 1%ers, are wanting their Tax Rate increased.
