The wealthy pay little or no taxes. Most wealthy stash their money in offshore accounts. If the working people paid as little in taxes as the wealthy, the USA would be bankrupt in one week.
That’s a fact, like it or not.
Spin it any way you wish, the wealthy are getting tax welfare.

The bottom line is that regardless of how strict you are restricting guns, someone, somewhere will get one. The worst part about strict gun control is that when a lunatic gets one, they run rampant, able to kill people at will because everyone else is defenseless. If several of those brave teachers that got slain protecting the innocents would have been armed, they would have had a chance to spray bullets back instead of sit there like a lamb to slaughter. I say all schools need to have armed teachers ready to protect our kids at a time of danger, not naked and unarmed against future assailants.

I do disagree with a few things, though. The term “Federal Government Loses $70 Billion…”, for example. The money is not the Federal Government’s to lose. Money is the property of those that earn it. Government does not earn money, it confiscates it. The other thing that drives me bananas is using 10 year estimated revenue (which is ALWAYS wrong) when discussing taxes. Politicians state a current budget (hey, when was the last time we actually had one of those?) defecit but talk about revenues over ten years. That is not honest in any way. Overall a good srticle, Mr. Salam.

The $250K threshold will be adjusted by the Chained CPI to make it fair to those affected. Combining this with a pop in the death tax will solve our national debt problem quite soon since all those job creators will have acute myocardial infarctions after the first year.
