Instead of taxing the rich and letting the govt waste it, how about they break it into two categories. Rich with businesses, and Rich without businesses. The Rich people who own businesses would have their tax money go to any employee in their company that makes less than $50,000 a year, distributed evenly. The rich who don't own businesses would have their money go to the govt to waste. That way the politicians would still get their money to buy votes, and the working people would also benefit due to the pay increase.

Yay? Nay?

No.

If people want to make more money, get a better education or find a better job.

Wait, I keep hearing there are no jobs. That's what the politicians and the people sucking on their tit say. Am I being lied to?

On a more serious note, I do hear in the news that the growing disparity between the rich and the poor is keeping people down. Hell, 99% of the 99%ers posts are denouncing capitalism and how the man is keeping them down. It wouldn't hurt to give people a pay raise.

The avg income for 25,000 and under has gone down by almost 11% in the last 10 years... Why? Everything else is getting more expensive since the retarded Fed and Treasury were given the green light to print TRILLIONS of dollars by two Presidents and two Congresses at least.
