every successful civilization has depended on rich people for tax; every successful civilization has had at least 2 things: taxes and a good census.
Or, Salty, possibly the country could live within its means. That's what I do when I can't pay my bills.

Tell me once again why the 9% that pay more than half the taxes, are not paying their fair share yet the half that paying nothing is.

Another thing. If a so called wealth tax looks like it might pass, I'm buying stock in foreign investments. That US wealth will disappear before the ink is dry on the bill.
