Not sure where my other reply went so im just gunna make this one quick:
EAT THE RICH! - YouTube
Simple...Explains that if we taxed the rich 100% it wouldn't run the government for a year(well give or take 1min). Anybody that wants to see the math can just watch the video[only 9 min]. But now lets say the government did all that and we were on year 2. The 1% became part of the 100%(Poor).
PM me for any questions = )
