they do pay the most, about 53% but the top 10% owns about 80% of the nations wealth so they should be paying 80% of the taxes. 


That is bad math. Clearly tax accounting is something you know nothing about. Wealth isn't always taxed. If you have deferred investments like IRA's or 401K's ... that's wealth. You can't spin the numbers to suit your manufactured outrage. 

 

Where the "rich" can do better is...  invest where their wealth originated. If that's here in the good ole USA, then do it and let us see you do it. The rich aren't the problem... ignorance is.

The rich will not wither and die because they do what their grandparents did, nor will people stop working and become "dependant" on Government because they have a fair share of what they help produce.


If this was the message to "rich" people, how effective a case for "fairness", do you believe you just made? 

 

 


You mean the one where billionaires have private heliports on their penthouse apartments while people who work full time jobs need to accept food stamp?  THAT justification?

Like a great father sometimes the "cure" for what ails us isn't easy medicine to take. Sure... the medicine is horrible, but the potential consequesnce are far worse.

AOC is spot on.  She is pointing out that America is rapidly becoming the country we used to use as bad examples.  Our infrastructure is crumbling, our technology is ancient, our standard of living is slipping and our future looks bleak.

Actually it shows how ignorant she really is.  While teachers are underpaid, it is nothing more than emotional rhetoric to say they have to sell blood to make rent.  It's like one democrat said, she's the shiny new object whose good at twitter but will never accomplish anything.

@alotofgrey

“The traitors at our far left”. Please explain. That does not make sense. Patriots are patriots whether right, left or middle. Thanks

It is one thing to hear, it is another to do.

 

That is the problem we on the Right have with our Republican politicians....They say one thing, then do the opposite.

 

Balanced budget?, smaller government?, less spending?, less debt?, individual freedom?, family values?, christian values?.....

 

Since Reagan, why is everything my Republican Party commits to nothing but a scam?

 

 Scam? Conservatives (patriots) are at our center. Any to the Right of that are "less" conservative. Our Far Right? Traitors, no more or less than the traitors at our Far Left.
