    If you don't understand what you wrote far be for me to explain it to you. What free 40 year ride did Bezos get exactly?

    tell me a civilized country that does that, Its done only in the eastern block country's, it's successful for business at the expense of everyone else. Our tax structure now is not bad for a economy, if you exclude what everyone but the rich gain from it.

    Re: Time to redistribute the wealth . It's only fair.

    Why is this fair again? These people as a whole contributed what to equal the work done by the others? These contributions are measured by what? I'm just curious. Why is it fair that joe schmoe who never gets off his couch earns the same as chuck the worker who does two shifts a day? Maybe the guy who invented the vaccine saving billions of lives only spent a year at work and should really only get about 34k.

    What's fair?
    Omniscience just sucks without omnipotence!

    Not advocating any type of take away of money from anyone, Taxes make winners and losers in this country and in all countries. The last 40 years it has all gone to the top, I'm simply advocating a tax rate that gives it all to the middle class and poor for the next 40 years, fair is fair.

    Many of the people who have such money, have it because they are the ones who earned it. Either through the work that they placed into obtaining, or by taking on all of the risk in trying to accrue it.
    so taxes are now theft, nonsense won't work here.

    I can come close to balance the budget with tax breaks for the wealthy.

    I have NO idea what many right wing types want. As a liberal of the boomer generation, not a millennial progressive I do believe in a progressive tax system. Not sure either party wants to tick off their rich donors who keep them in office.

    Nonsense not in anyway talking at all about people who don't work and can. That number is very small.
