How about we just tax 'me at 50%, Poor folks would have to have an average of only $2 or $3 Billion to survive on.
The richest 400 Americans have more money than the bottom 80 million Americans combined.
I know .... Let's do nothing and that way statisticians tell us that in less than 10 years the richest 400 people will have more money than the bottom 150 million Americans.
Yep, that's great for America.

Tax YOU at 50%? LMAO.
Hey, Einstein, you'd be taxing their wealth, not their income. Make up your mind, if you're understanding what you're trying to do...
What are you going to do after you TAKE 50% from those EVIL rich people. How much of a dent does it put in our country's debt? What then? Tax 'em (note the proper spelling) again? Then what? Think these people will stick around?
Amazing you can argue one side of the argument (and not very well at that) yet not address questions posed that expose the weakness of your points...
Typical, yet not unexpected...
Wealth envy is an ugly thing. They have it. You don't.
Somebody else got all the breaks. You didn't.
They got an education. You didn't.
They worked their a$$es off, including long hours and weekends. You didn't.
They took risks, including investing their own money if necessary, to build a business. You didn't.
"Shared prosperity" = Socialism...
“If you’re not a liberal at 20, you have no heart, and if you’re not a conservative at 40, you have no head.” Winston Churchill
“Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.” Winston Churchill
“Common sense is a flower that doesn’t grow in everyone’s garden…”
The entire liberal philosophy is based on anti-individualism and burdened down with a complete lack of logic. No liberal has ever been able to explain why it is OK for someone to use the government to do for them what would be a crime if they did it for themselves- such as seize someone else’s property because you think you need it more than they do…
