Take from wealth generators and give to the less productive, House Member proposes 90% income tax
Think about this, and I write this as a non-billionaire. Why would anyone work to build anything if they were taxed at 90%? It's flat out stupid. This lady just doesn't understand what America is all about. Or maybe she does and that is WAY worse.
But we'll bet she just doesn't know what she's talking about.
“There are a few things that we can do,” Rep. Omar said in an interview with “Through Her Eyes.” “One of them, is that we can increase the taxes that people are paying who are the extremely wealthy in our communities. So, 70 percent, 80 percent, we’ve had it as high as 90 percent. So, that’s a place we can start.”
“The one percent must pay their fair share,” she continued.
"Fair share"? What does she know about "fair shares"?
You want to talk about fair? Shoot. We can do this all day long and then some. A lot some.
