That's right! America has quite a few really wealthy people compared to many other countries, but not enough to make a significant difference even if you taxed them 100% of income.
The squeeze is always on the 'MIDDLE CLASS" and that class is huge in the US. So when that Obama twit rails about taxing the "rich" more you know the rest of us will get hit with higher taxes too. Other than the 47% who DO NOT pay income tax of course.
