    so you claim that is not something the internal revenue service collects. When I pay my taxes every quarter =some which are earned income, some which are dividends and some which are LTCG I write just one check

    and you are right-Buffett won't have any change in his lifestyle if your parasitic scheme comes to pass. But most of the people you call rich will be impacted.

Should I get punished by having to pay higher taxes, legislative rules on how, when, where, to whom and for how much I make/distro the cure?

    of course those who hate investors tend not to understand what happens when a parasitic government takes more and more investments
    If you never have any actual arguments to present about my posts, why do you keep replying to them? Just so we don't forget you're here? We know you're here, we know you're a right winger, we know you don't ever have any substantive arguments about anything. You don't need to keep announcing it every 10 seconds.

    good question but you definitely ought to charge those who want to raise your taxes 5 million a shot if they contract cancer.

    I truly hope that the attitudes of those who want to punish the rich with more taxes cause the rich to actually unite and retaliate against the tax hikers.

    your arguments are nothing more than a desire for the government to take more wealth from people who already pay far more for government services than others. you don't have any substantive arguments because FROM EACH ACCORDING TO THEIR ABILITY is a joke and you don't even demand those who have the ability to pay SOME income tax to do so.

    we get the fact that you think the government needs more money. I suggest people who think that way pony up the money and give it to the government

    You're going to charge $275k per shot for a life saving medication?!?! 56 million people a year die of cancer, so are you aiming for $15 trillion a year in profits and you're going to let 56 million people die if you don't get it... You expect 1/4 of all the money in the world in exchange for a formula you have written down somewhere. That would pretty much put you in comic book supervillain territory...

    Yes, in that scenario I would suggest that we set up a 99% tax for profits over $100 billion a year and use the proceeds to buy cancer cures from you for people.

    substantive arguments-tax the rich more because the government needs it more than they do

    anything else to add?

    I want as little as possible from government. I do not want some malignant little bureaucrat who can't even run their own ****ing life telling me how I should live mine

    There should be some incentive to succeed. To earn more and do better and if, I earn a LOT more, I should get to enjoy my money and that is certainly a reward. But the tax structure shouldn't become punitive and apply a brake to success by discouraging achievement.
