I see this happening from both sides of the isle; If Elon Musk was an Oil baron, you would not be complaining....The Oil industry is getting so much in tax cuts/govt' subsidies that it gets down to the >>> Government IS the OIL industry!<<<
I believe everyone should be treated equally- You pay taxes, you have opportunities, etc...Sadly, the rich can buy influence....A lot of it!
I would like to see Obamacare revised so it works better/more efficiently...But the guys pulling the puppet strings in DC wanted to basically make healthcare a "Get rich people richer" scheme...And a few of the true republicans said no! Now the Tax reform plan is being completely tilted to give the ultra-rich a free ride, while the lower and middle class will be screwed.....And the debt goes up- WAY up!
I wish you guys could see, it ain't about left or right, it's about DC vs the people....Trump is WORSE than one of them, because he isn't even really interested in helping the rich- Only himself!
The ultra-rich will ALWAYS complain about taxes- Their whole motivation in life is to get more money....So of course they think they should NEVER pay ANY taxes....They will always try to buy influence to get tax cuts for them- while bankrupting the country; Remember, these people fly off to the Swiss alps to ski, not colorado, they go to Paris and Amsterdam for Vacation, not NY or Yellowstone.....When do we really see this "Trickle-down" economic benefit? (During Reagan, the tax rate needed to be lowered on the rich, who were paying 50%, but now their real rate is down to approx' 10% with write-offs and such......Trickle down helped because it created more capital to start more businesses, but if you keep going, when will we start "Negative taxes?...Meaning the government PAYS rich people just to exist?)
