Allison, the dems would never agree to a wealth tax. This would cut into their own money. You see, these dem. congressmen have made a fortune on "insider" trading but only draw around 180K in salary. How does a poor boy like Harry Reid become a millionaire serving in the senate at a salary of less than 250K/year? How has Pelosi tripled her wealth in the last two or three years? Congress always exempts themselves from the laws they make for us. So, they are wealthy but not high income, and income tax is based on income not investments. They only tax the high achievers whose incomes are more than 250K per year, not the cheaters, who use their knowledge of upcoming legislation to invest in companies their legislation favors
