Today's Poll: Should the wealth of the super rich be given to the poor?
This is called Socialism at best and Communism at it's worst. I do believe the tax loop holes, that favor the super rich, should be eliminated.
I voted no. The super rich have the ability to help build an economy which, in turn, provides the means for others to prosper.
Sounding pretty libertarian there, Bea.
who hacked into Bea's account?
I kept hitting thumbs up on Bea's comment over and over but it only registered once
I don't look upon the super rich as Daddy Warbucks, but I do expect them to have a social conscience. Trickle Down didn't work. The super rich got their share but chose to forget that share came from those who labored for them. The perception that the prosperity would find its way down failed to become a reality. The two way street became a one way road block. They prospered on high production with less workers. They prospered with the help of corporate welfare. I don't expect them to run, willy nilly, handing out dollar bills. I expect them to do the right thing and foster aclimate of opportunity for prosperity to flourish.
That's 2 thumbs up today, Bea.
When we asked: Is income inequality in the U.S. a problem? Nearly 70 percent of the respondents said yes.
Then we asked: Is 'income inequality' a problem the government needs to address? And 42 percent said yes.
Now we ask: Should the wealth of the super rich be given to the poor? And nearly three-quarters say NO.
Wildly divergent results on essentially the same question from our unscientific polls.
If forcing them to pay a fair tax bill, loophole free, then I would vote yes.
But that won't happen, they own too many politicians.
I have no problem with giving people a hand up. It's the people that want a hand out that I can't stand. Generational welfare and the unwillingness to work or learn a trade. There will always be a percent of the population that needs a hand, it's the ones that abuse the system that is the problem. I think we all pay enough in taxes.
anyone here wish to explain to me what super rich is?
Howard I watched about 2 mins. of that video. . thank you for giving me the insight of who the super rich are. appears to me that those super rich people worked for their money, they didn't sit around on a porch or under a shade tree crying whoas me, where is my money.? the super rich can do whatever they wish with their money.
