vartian: Embattled French President Francois Hollande suffered a fresh setback Saturday when France's highest court threw out a plan to tax the ultrawealthy at a 75 percent rate, saying it was unfair.75%? Our elite whines when then have to pay the same 35% the rest of us do.
Silly Jesus: At least their reporters admit that taxes on the wealthy are largely symbolic (class warfare) and have no real impact on the financial crisis.Their wealthiest person was already in the process of packing up and leaving, I wonder if that had any impact on this decision.
vartian: 75%? Our elite whines when then have to pay the same 35% the rest of us do.
ramblinwreck: We should bring back the 90% top rate bracket, creating a way to discourage executives from receiving 300 times the pay than their average worker.
jeffowl: OTOH the French have a more direct way of dealing with rich people who do not show concern for the plight of the poor.

Our elite whines when then have to pay the same 35% the rest of us do.You pay 35% income tax? Those making ~390k pay 35% income tax, bravo if that's your cross to bear. I bet you're talking out of your ass though.
HAMMERTOE: We have a small tax problem. We have a LARGE spending problem.
proteus_b: paris is such an amazing place. sadly you have to practically be a billionaire to live there, good god, one more day in that place and i'd have had to declare bankruptcy...
StickyBunBandit: Also,they need to surrender when a German comes near.
nicoffeine: Writer needed about two more minutes to figure out what the rate already is and tell us. Otherwise it's all "blah blah blah 75%@$1,000,000! the guy from My Dad the Hero blah blah blah!"
Cajnik: Bulgaria tried to lure the French ultra-rich with "cheap alcohol, concrete beach resorts and experienced prostitutes'
Stone Meadow: IIRC, Romney claimed he never paid less than 14% on the average $20 million per year he made over the past decade, which is less than the rate demanded of a married-filing-jointly family making just $70,000.I have no issue with the rates as they stand...so long as they're collected on every dime one makes anywhere on Earth.Oh, and remove the social security cap, too.

kombat_unit: But farkers told me over and over that the rich never leave because of retarded tax rates. WTF?
KipperM: Cajnik: Bulgaria tried to lure the French ultra-rich with "cheap alcohol, concrete beach resorts and experienced prostitutes'My parents recently went on a trip to Golden Sands, Bulgaria (via Varna airport). They loved it. It's a beach area where all the Germans/Russians/Polish go for some sun time. It's super cheap. They went to a dinner show and each guest had their own bottles of wine and soda. The scenery is nice. They visited a little town in the hills and have pics of a refuse collector, which is a donkey cart, because of the hilly and cobblestone roads.
