The opposite day, I talked with a left-leaning Bernie Sanders supporter who disliked Clinton and due to this fact didn’t vote this time round within the 2016 Presidential Election. He advised me we should always tax the wealthy to pay for faculty for each American, to pay for well being care of each American and to present a minimal test to each one that didn’t have a job. I smiled and mentioned; oh actually and he mentioned; “Yah!”So, I requested him how a lot did he assume all that may value. He mentioned; “a lot, but if we tax the rich we could pay for it all.” Really, I defined to him that there have been many billionaires but when we took “all of their money” it would not even run our authorities for 6-months after which they would not be wealthy anymore, they’d be as poor as a household dwelling within the initiatives, so they would not have something to tax subsequent yr to pay. I advised that possibly we should always tax the wealthy so the federal government might assist the poor pay extra consideration. With out desirous about it, he simply mentioned “Yah!”
You see, he did not care what the tax was for, he simply wished to soak the wealthy. I requested him if he realized that wealthy folks had been a small minority in America, and that we would be attacking minorities if we taxed them greater than everybody else. He mentioned; “Who cares, tax the rich!” Okay, so I requested him if he cared about wealthy folks and he mentioned; “Hell No!” I laughed and I mentioned that was an excellent factor that he did not care about them? He requested me why, and I advised him as a result of with speak like that I guess they do not care about you both. He simply stopped speaking for a second to contemplate that time.Then he mentioned to me; “The rich have everything.” And, I requested him if he’d wish to be wealthy too, and he mentioned; “Of course” after which I requested him if it could be okay if I employed the federal government to come back and take all his cash, his home and belongings. He mentioned, “no” as a result of he felt that would not be proper. I advised him; powerful luck, as a result of subsequent time somebody like Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton runs for workplace I’ll vote for them to come back take your cash after which give it to me. He was beginning to see my level, however indignant he’d misplaced the talk. Really, he misplaced greater than that, he’d already misplaced his ethical excessive floor. Suppose on this.
