Mr. Bloomberg said those people "are the ones that pay a lot of the taxes

but yet this dump of a state has some of the highest tax rates in the country, so they aren't paying enough.

Awesome, do it. Hopefully it'll lower prices in places people want to live.

"And we take tax revenues from those people to help people throughout the entire rest of the spectrum. And it gives you this income inequality measure."

Or we could maybe talk those billionaires into paying their employees a decent wage and we wouldn't have to tax their money to give it to their workers for them.

So is he just going to come right out and say that he hates the poors yet or is he working his way up to that?

I thought the point of the poverty immigration policy of the Democrats was to make it so employers don't have to pay their employees a decent wage by keeping the labor market supersaturated with cheap labor. What could be the point of it if not that?

Bloomberg and the Democrats were arguing that New York needed the illegals there to keep the greens fees low at the country clubs. God forbid that an actual citizen be able to work there and make enough to feed his family when billionaires can save a couple bucks by having their golf courses trimmed by illegals.

''I believe we've done a great job with boat people, and I think that a few yacht people are not going to hurt America.'' ~Harold W. Ezell, former regional commissioner for the Immigration and Naturalization Service, to the The New York Times in 1991.

I'm failing to see how what he's saying isn't true.  If you have billionaires, odds are they're buying housing that is ridiculously expensive.  Which means they're paying crazy amounts of property tax. They'd likely spend assloads of money on expensive shiat in NYC, paying crazy amounts of sales tax.  They're also probably giving a shiatton of money to local museums, charities, etc., because they're seeing them on a daily basis.

So, yeah.  Bring on the billionaires and multimillionaires.  My lower-middle class ass (if that high) welcomes you to my fine city.

/ income gap is the stupidest statistic in history.
// our poor do not live like the poor in the third world.  any moron can tell you that, but then turn around and spew venom about income gap.

But it takes an exceptional moron to defend it like you just did.  Forrest Gump is smarter than that.
