We're not talking about simply taxing income or purchases. This is taxing someone not based on any activity other than being rich. The would be the government coming in saying that you have more than you need and we are going to take some of it. For no other reason than because you exist and have more than some politician thinks you need.

If a Republican had made such a proposal, they left would be up in arms. I think we should only tax millionaires that donate or support the Democratic party. I wonder how the left would like that proposal.

And, for the sake of argument, let's pretend that's true. It still isn't communism and calling it that undermines whatever point the commenter is trying to make.

Well what would you call it? It sure isn't taxation. Like GAC said, it is the government saying that you have too much and they deserve a piece of it, For no other reason other than you have more than they want you to have.

I'm sure you have much more than the homeless guy on the street. Can I determine how much that I think you need and take what I want?

I have 4 properties, some people say I don't need 4 properties, but I pay my property taxes. Should I have to pay more because some think that I have too much?

Under communism the State owns all property. This proposal requires a complete inventory of all property so the State can lay claim to whatever portion of what is in effect its property.

The projected revenues from punishing success this time will not even cover Medicare for all. Once the parasites in government get a taste for robbery like this there will be no stopping them from taking more and more to finance their ever expanding vote buying schemes, free college, free kindergarten, etc.

Yes, we must stop this horror now before we are subjected to the communist plot of "free kindergarten."

There we go, after the fake objection to labeling the socialist proposal accurately is exposed out comes the ends justify the means rationalization.

Comrade, did you forget the essential tactic of indoctrinating the young with collectivism?

It sounds like you would be A-OK with communism, if everything was free, right? It would make us a better country wouldn't it?

Free College
Free Health Care
Free Housing
Free transportation

Wow! your right, that sounds great,

And it would impose an “exit tax” on those seeking to avoid the wealth tax by renouncing their American citizenship.
So if you leave the country because you don't like the president you can go free...

...but if you leave the country because you don't like the tax scheme you get punished...
