    Most of the time I agree with him- I think his articles are fantastic.  I just thought this particular one was worded badly.  We don't need to depend on taxing the wealthy for extra government revenue- I'd still favor it even if it didn't bring in a single dime of government revenue.

      on money not "...bring in a single dime of government revenue"? I understand the idea of wanting prevent creation of great fortunes, but the only way a tax can bring in no revenue is if it's levied on those with no money....
