Yes. I'm a greedy bastard!! I need MORE!!!
No. There's comes a point in wealthiness where it just doesn't even matter anymore.
I'm not sure.
personally, I could care **** all whether they pay the exact same % as me, since they pay much much more in actual dollars than i do. my kid brother is one of those wealthy bastards you bitch about (spent 17 years in school and training to become a pediatric heart surgeon) and he paid more income tax last year than i grossed.
AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
I answered that raising taxes on anyone is unreasonable. I am not rich and I am not greedy. Raising taxes will not balance the budget. The problem is not lack of revenue, it is a lack of control of spending.
