Pure greed, the hunger for money, that's whom our one procent is. Do two things:

  1. Introduce two new tax brackets. The first will be taxing people earning inbetween 800.000 en 2.000.000 dollar a normal (the hardworking rich). They have to pay a little bit more tax. The second: everything above 2000000 dollars per year. They have to pay a higher percentage.

  2. Ban complicated financial products betting on market fall or fluctuation. Those products are detrimental to normal sanity: they cause greed.

These two arguments are, of course, prone to receive well-grounded criticism. I understand that their not perfect. Furthermore, people will rightly say that the greedy nowadays have little borders: if they don't like the tax climate they can go elsewhere. However, we are the people, we are occupy and we're all over the world. If the greedy go to another country, we make sure that country gets those laws too. And if the move house again, than we make sure the same thing happens.

The 99% is just as greedy.

They want to take money away from the 1% for themselves by use of government force. That is greed.

That is money they didn't earn.

The 99% is no better than the 1%.
