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.
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.
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.
