The era of old school conservatism had much higher taxes imposed on the people, but now the already rich want to be even richer even if it means destroying the economy that supports ALL of us.
You can only squeeze so much from the middle class, and pretty much nothing from the poor.
We need to get back to the era where wealth is earned, not stolen. Beats me why they can't see that it is better to have a thousand millionaires instead of one billionaire.
AND, getting rich should be done by adding value to the system, not just manipulating the finances of others.
