  •  it's the difference between "wealth" and "income" (2+ / 0-)

    In the US, income can be taxed, but wealth cannot be.  That is of course a wonderful thing for the uber-rich, who have most of the wealth, but not most of the job income (they don't NEED any job, dahling). Most of their wealth comes from non-job "unearned income" like capital gains, which are not taxed in the same manner as job income (but SHOULD be).

    But it's always amusing to hear the uber-wealthy bitch and moan about how bad they got it. Poor little dears might even have to sell off a Bentley or two to pay their taxes. Sniffle, sob, boo hoo hoo.

    Perhaps they'd be happier moving to Europe to see if they can get a better tax deal there.

    Fucking crybabies.
