Cooper, while I agree that while the majority of Americans will not be affected by it, it is none the less, a confiscation of wealth. As Americans, we should be concerned about how policies affect all citizens. Taxing the rich is not a solution to our government. They have an insatiable appetite for wealth. They will keep going, until eventually the "rich" is the guy making $60,000. We should not be a people who is jealous of our neighbor's success, and wants the fruit of their labor taken away. I am only on this earth for a finite amount of time. All of my work from Jan. 1 - April 30 is spent paying taxes to our govt. If I could take just one month of that, and put it in my own savings/investments, then I could add 2-5 years
