  •  Forget about the talk of "fair share" (1+ / 0-)

    What matters to the country is the greatest well-being for the greatest number of people.

    Any definition of "fair share" might ultimately -- depending on our economic system and our tax system -- result in every penny of wealth belonging to one person. We seem to be headed in that direction. The very rich are getting very much richer.

    Already, the Forbes 400 have an aggregate net worth of over $2 Trillion. I really don't give a fuck if you think that's "fair" in some arithmetic sense. It's not good for the people of this country, so it's wrong. And the only way to fix this injustice is through the tax code.

    Republicans proved in October that they are UNFIT TO GOVERN. Don't let the voter forget it. (-7.25, -6.21)
