Say we raise taxes on the richest 3% of Americans. The top 3% make about $600 billion/year. Raise their taxes a full 10%. Do it like this: Extend the Medicare portion of FICA to ALL income. Right now i avoid being taxed on any monies over $100,000 by declaring it a dividend from my shell corporation. All highly compensated folks do this. Totally legal. But close that down. Bump taxes 7% to 43% or 45%. Net tax receipts to the money wasting liberal Democrats?: about $70 billion. Thats it. Not even a drop in the bucket. Taxes will have to rise for all income levels, even the poorest of the poor. Good work Phil Ayesho and the rest of the wacko progressives.
