    if he really wants to pay more then well don't claim all those itemized deductions and take the standard deduction that everyone else does.
    write a check to the federal treasury if you don't think the government is getting enough of your money.

    we are not talking about how much money they give away but how much they think they should pay or not pay to the federal government and employee's.

    no it just sounds good in sound bites.

    the guy from amazon thinks people should be paid 13-15 dollars an hour then let his company start doing it because they don't. typical job at amazon pays 8-10 depending.

    just lip service that people eat up and can't see the BS for what it is.

    The term tycoon doesn't seem to have the same cache as it used to have.

    Their hands are tied. I can't possibly think of a way that they could pay more taxes or pay their employees more....

    FYI: Billionaires almost uniformly support any government program that causes greater financial burden on their smaller rivals.

    Uhg.....income disparity is a empty left wing narrative. Just a tool used to divert attention away from whats really destroying the middle class.

    Leftist led Governments and their economic policies ALWAYS eventually nail the middle class.

    Look at Argentina and Venzuela. Who tried price controls and who nationalized industries.

    Look at Japans head long dive into a Keynesian "solution" thats turning into a disaster.

    Japan's PM is urging their Corporations to increase wages as its Government is wiping out the savings and wealth and purchasing power of its citizens by tanking their currency.

    Stupid.

    When your policies target the discretionary income via mandated cost increases ( ObamaCare ) and or Keynesian malfeasnace that winds up tanking your currency, OF-COURSE the Middle Class are going to be hit.

    These clowns can talk and offer up opinions, but they're not offering up solutions.

    Real solutions and not some self destructive ridiculous attempt to put more money in peoples pockets by raising the minumum wage.

    Its been 5 years. Its NOT working. Government policies and mandates centered on "fairness" and demagogy are making things worse, ALL OVER THE WORLD.


    When I here this nonsense I immediately assume the source is just parroting this lunacy because it fits his ideology.

    Its hard to believe anyone actually buus this crap.

    Why in the world would Gimbels pay their employees more so they could buy more stuff at Macy's ?

    Because Gimbels wants to buy Macy's?

    It's not rocket science. If I want my company to compete against really solid performers and they have good talent, then it makes sense, I'd pay to get the same. The backbone and structure of a corporation is it's staff and if you have poorly paid, unhappy personnel, it'll be reflected in the quality of their work.

    Yes that makes sense. I thought you were implying that employers should pay people more so they would buy stuff from other corporations, thus creating some type of cooperative shangr-la where everybody benefits.

    Who cares?! It would be a drop in the ocean if they all dumped everything at once. Think I'm wrong? Recall seeing the debt marque in New York moving faster than the eye can see and brain comprehend? No matter what there will always be poor.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.
