    I think its a good idea. Especially for those that make $250,000 or more.

    Why should anyone "making $250,000 or more" pay at a higher rate than you?

    That would sure make me want to work harder and make more money. Knowing that millions who didn't want to work, wouldn't have enough welfare if I didn't make extra money for them.

    It will finish off France. Not that that would stop the Democrats from wanting to do it here, too.

    I would remind everyone that the Third Reich was called National Socialist (Nazi).

    Yes, let's cap income at $250,000 per year, with 100 per cent taxation of all income above that.

    We will then guarantee welfare payments of $250,000 per year to everyone.

    That way, everyone, people who want to work, and those who don't, will be equal. Can't get any more fair than that.

    What could go wrong? :dunno:

    Nothing would go wrong.

    I trust the government(of any country), to appropriately handle the funds and get them to the correct places with as few errors and as little corruption as possible.

    Because, as Obama tells us, YOU didn't succeed. It was the GOVERNMENT that made you successful, and you OWE the government for your success. Individual initiative, hard work and intelligence have nothing to do with it, it's THE GOVERNMENT that creates wealth, not the individual. :upeyes:

    All animals are equal.

    But some are more equal than others.
