Once again, the barista is cut off as a shower of broken glass spotters across the floor. A horde pours into the coffee shop. The zombie apocalypse has begun- but at least income inequality is sorted.
And about your concerns with charity, Joe, people would donate more if an estate tax were to be instated because they would receive tax breaks on money that might be heavily taxed if it were left to another family member. It's an immediate payback, and the ego boost that comes from giving doesn't hurt either. Directing money from estates to charities will both support the charities and better the reputation of those donating, which in turn could lead to greater success.
Companies use tax havens to build their profits until they can invest those profits into new projects. Why would we impede that? The US doesn't tax a large amount of the earnings of foreign investors within its borders, so why does it tax its own citizens so heavily? If we're going to get the money back to our country, we should lower the corporate tax rate to encourage companies to come back on their own.
Obviously not. And in the case of charities, the wealthy get tax breaks for donating just as everyone else does— and they get more tax breaks that people making less don't get a chance to profit off of.
If you're pushing for justice for the lower classes paying taxes, why aren't you pushing for fairness in the higher income brackets? You're biased against success. No matter how much you tax the rich, they're going to have more money than the poor do, and that's your issue here. The wealthy work for their money, and they deserve what they earn.
