"If Congress imposed a 100 percent tax, taking all earnings above $250,000 per year, it would bring in about $1.9 trillion. That would keep Washington running for 190 days, but there's a problem because there are 175 more days left in the year."Ask your friends (esp. left-leaning) if the "fair share" nonsense makes any sense when looking at numbers like that. I know, you'll get blank stares. (braaaaaaaains.....fair share....braaaaains...tax the rich....braaaaaiiins....millionaires and billionaires...gimme my stuff...). Okay, just having fun.
Still, the ship sinks.
