Taking every bit of money that anyone in the country earns over $250,000 would cover about 120 days of the planned spending being done by Presbo. and sort of creates a disincentive for those same folks to hang around in this country and have it done to them again.
Plus it would mean no more Microsofts, no more Apples, no more Intel, Hewlitt/Packard, IBM, no more big companies that provide us the accoutrements of everyday life that are so popular with the yuppies. Pretty much every product over and above basic meals and shelter came from an entrepreneur that had to accumulate more than that in order to get off the ground. No more economy for the middle class. No more middle class.
A little more gruel?
