    At least in the old days, you got to kill aristocrats from time to time.
    Which "aristocrats" pay nothing in taxes? I call bull****.

    No of course they are paying taxes, just not their fair share. Warren Buffet earned 3 billion one year but only had to pay 186mil. That's not right he should have payed 2.7 billion.

    I think their should be an IRS panel that decides the tax rate for the really rich so we don't have an individual earning 3 billion and paying only 186 million in income taxes.

    What the hell......? So 186 million is not enough in your opinion? Oh alright.

    It's not for someone who is already a billionaire and who earned more than a billion dollars in one year.

    But what does being a millionaire or a billionaire have to do with anything? Paying 186 million dollars pays for the housing of thousands of people do you think that's enough? It's one thing to have a socially responsible position. What you're advocating is economic lunacy.

    No. He still would be a billionaire. With an ability to spend whatever way he wanted to and tax income goes to more than just housing.
