That's right. Tax the shit out of them. Tax them into oblivion if necessary. But the wealthy have an interesting "trump" card to play. Just allow hordes of illegal immigrants into the country. That way, the average American sucker will be against raising taxes to support their worthless asses. Also, one of the main reasons why out national debt is out of control is because the wealthy aren't paying their fair share of taxes. A little lower in this list of threads I have one called "Do the wealthy even pay taxes?" But it didn't seem to get a lot of traction.
Another thing is that sending so many good paying jobs overseas to wage slave countries doesn't give Americans those good wages to pay taxes with. Along with giving us trade deficits. Also, I often hear about cities here in the U.S. who have to provide bribes to companies in the form of tax breaks to get them to create jobs in their communities. So who pays for them? The poor! I have a couple graphs for you that you might find interesting.
