While it seems to have become easy for some to disparage those who are making money in the United States, without them who is going to pay to run the country?
This then causes some to question an economic system that this country was founded on and prospered within.
If the 1% stop doing what they do and paying the taxes that they pay the next time one of us dials 911 there will be a recording on the other end of the line!
Should the tax code be tightened up? Should loopholes be plugged? Absolutely! But at the end of the day be careful what you wish for in terms of a socialist-style distribution of wealth because without those hated top earners it will be the rest of us paying the price!
