Boehner’s “top earners” category does not include the financial elite. Prior to the imposition of federal income taxes early in the last century, the elite had established tax avoidance foundations under the cover of humanitarianism.
The likes of the Rockefellers, Carnegies, Buffett and Gates won’t pay one more dime but it would be nice if we could at least get the 2 billion in back taxes Buffett still owes the IRS!!!!
The Reece Committees analysis of Foundations concluded that the financial elite had established their foundations to enable oligarchical collectivism, or corporatism (otherwise known as fascism, as Mussolini described it), in addition to tax avoidance. I didn’t need a paid Commission to figure that dumb sh** out.
