Sounds like AOC's ideas are more popular in your party than any of you care to admit!

If you increased taxes on more than 10 million in income, how much extra revenue does that actually bring in?

I was thinking, wouldn't you all want some of that money?

Nope. It's not mine. I did not earn it. Its theirs. They pay taxes.

I'd much rather see us have a tax structure where everyone plays after a minimum of 10 grand. Maybe a very small amount like 4%. Its horribly unbalanced to continue to give a bye to so many and to burden so few with tax loads

Gee, a poll that actually shows a bunch of people wanting to raise some tax on the very rich.

In other words, tax EVERYONE else as long as it doesn't affect me!

To begin with, the wealth tax is nothing new. It's been tried by many nations, but most who've tried it have dropped it. As recently as 1990, according to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, 12 of its member countries imposed a wealth tax on citizens. Today, it's just four.

The irony is that those who ended their failed experiments with the wealth tax are those that America's "democratic socialists" say they most admire. That includes Denmark and Sweden, nations often cited by people like Warren, Sen. Bernie Sanders, and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as worthy of emulation by the American left

Don’t all of the billionaires in this country have a combined net worth of around $2 trillion?

It’s like people don’t get that these crazy $30 trillion+ programs are going to mean more money from yours and your neighbors pocket?

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's 70 Percent Tax on the Rich Isn't About Revenue, It's About Decreasing Inequality

So in essence, work hard and succeed, and we will cut your hands off? Punish people because they were smart enough to play the game and win? Unless I am misunderstanding this, sign me up as a no thanks. :-)

Don't care as much about taxing the rich more....

Close the loopholes
Fix executive compensation which is completely out of control. Don't know how any reasonable person thinks this comp structure is even remotely sensible
Use savings to pay down the debt, not to create more government

If the rich are fairly compensated and pay fair share of taxes they're welcome to make as much as they want.
