Nope it's definitely a Republican thing to give tax breaks to the rich. Don't be a dumbass.

We should keep increasing taxes on the rich until everybody is poor. Take away any incentive to work hard and achieve success.

We should definitely increase taxes on the rich; you are absolutely correct.

Can't find the holes* in the tax code unless someone writes the tax code to HAVE those holes* in it.

(*deliberate gifts to corporations and the ultra-rich)

Why is this myth about working hard equalling success still a thing. Its so romantic to successful people to be able to think they just worked the hardest and thats why theyre up there i get it, but megarich people just cant exist by sheer worth without f*cking a lot of people over.

The only people that would be discouraged from working to improve themselves and their situation by something as simple as being a millionaire instead of a billionaire? Sociopaths. And f*ck them anyway

I always hear this argument, but has this ever actually happened?
"F*ck making more money, man, the tax bracket is too high!"

I jumped tax brackets twice last year and let me tell you, I am so upset that my paychecks kept getting bigger I considered just being homeless instead.

Well, any logical person would. You'll show them when you don't have anything to tax.

When I saw this, I actually stopped and did the math because it seemed so unbelievable. Spoiler alert:

It's accurate.



Absolutely f*ckin' nobody on this earth "deserves" a billion dollars, and it's straight-up immoral to have that much money.

“Taxing the wealthy will kill Innovation, hard work, and success.” Except in all the countries where it doesn’t.

“Companies can’t afford to pay fast workers a living wage.” Except all the countries where they do.

“Paying for healthcare for all will bankrupt a country.” Except all the countries where they do just that.

No, the only way for the US remain the wealthiest country on Earth is by ensuring that the bottom 90% of Americans only own 23% of the nations wealth while the top 1% own 40% of all the wealth. It is critical that we maintain these numbers even as lower class citizens are seeing their life expectancy decrease. Even as large segments of society suffer from hookworm, which is more commonly associated with living conditions in 3rd world countries. The fact that Betsey Devos owns 10 yachts while teachers work multiple jobs is crucial to the success of our country.

How can you have that much money and not pay your employees more? It's sociopathic.

If you "can't afford" to pay ALL your workers an actual living wage, you don't deserve to stay in business any more than a business that "can't afford" to pay their f*cking power bill. Period.

I just had to look. 961 million plus. Amazing.

Fun fact: wage theft is the biggest form of theft in the country. It dwarfs other forms of theft.

Yet wage thieves get tax breaks while other thieves get prison time.

Speaking of taxes, as more and more companies are pushing business costs on employees through bring your own device policies, the government eliminated unreimbursed business expense deductions for traditional employees. Fun stuff!
