This whole project is directed toward taxing the rich has nothing to do with money - it is class warfare. It obviously wins elections. Obama has created a wave of jealousy in those who want to distribute money - not from the rich necessarily, but from anyone presumed to have more inciome - not net income - gross income. First comes destruction of the middle class, then the poor. Those with the most moeny will survive - most will re-locate, those that remain will become the elitist class in a dictatorshiop. History always repeats itself- Soviet Union, Germany, Itlay in the last century should be real lessons.
