Resist, We Much:
In 2010, the Congressional Budget Office reported that the federal government spent $3.456 trillion that year, or $9.5 billion per day.
But what if the federal government confiscated every last penny of net worth from the top 100 richest people in America?
According to Forbes, the combined net worth of the top 100 richest people in America= $724.8 billion
That would fund federal government spending for 76.3 days…so what are politicians proposing we should do to pay for the remaining 288.7 days of the year?
