Fund Health CareJuly 8, 2009 at 10:18 pm | Posted in American politics | 1 Comment
Simple answers to simple questions. It’s not like America hasn’t taxed the wealthy before to solve major problems. After all, even during the Eisenhower administration, the wealthiest Americans were taxed at 90%. I don’t advocate such a high tax, but just saying, today’s wealthiest Americans are BY FAR wealthier than America’s wealthy ever have been. Middle class and lower class have stagnated or sunk over the past 30 years (thanks to Republican policies) while the rich have prospered beyond anyone’s imaginations. Tax them. Tax them well. 50% ought to pay for health care, balance our budget, and even pay down some of that nasty debt we are incurring and passing down to our children.
