Every time I hear a pandering Socialist say that "the rich should pay more taxes", what I really hear is "soak the middle class", which has been and is the modus operandi for every socialist and communist regime since the beginning of time. From Teresa Heinz Kerry, to Mirnie Bloomsanders, and every one in between, I want someone to ask them how much money they gave the IRS in addition to what they owed. If they truly believed their propaganda, they would be donating to the IRS above and beyond their obligations.
What they are truly saying is that they want a form of government that picks winners in the lottery of wealth, as they know that every socialist/communist regime has had a favored class of elite wealth.

I thought Bloomberg wanted a10% tax cut for everyone making under $200K?

So, Bloomberg thinks rich starts at $200K huh?
If Bloomberg quit trying to make any new money and simply put his net worth in a passbook savings account at 1% he would make 3200 times more in interest than the "rich person" at $200K.

Rich would (appear to) be someone with
Gold chains
Air Jordan’s
Big Plasma screens
Satellite TV
Newest iPhone
Gucci bag
Dr Dres Beats
No car payment
No house payment
No health insurance premium
No marriage certificate
No job

With only 4/12, I don’t quite qualify.

It will be when the 5% move out of the country. Several South American countries are offering citizenship for less than 150k with all rights. Starting to sound like a deal and several have already gone.
Wow...we have wanted to move to Chile. Do you have a link?

You are aware that the US is the only major country that taxes citizens overseas? Also, it is expensive to renounce your US citizenship. If you have means they charge a substantial exit tax on asset gains and any deferred compensation like pensions.

A friend of mine is Australia and never lived here. But was dual citizen as his mom was American. It cost him over $20000 to get rid of his US citizenship despite never even being in America except on vacation.

What happens if he doesn't pay?
