    Wealth    Population    Tax    Taking
    42%        1%            40%    17%
    27%        4%            15%    4%
    11%        5%            10%    1%
    12%        10%       
      7%        80%        22%

    If we did a wealth tax that over the next ten years took in 40% of the top bracket, 15% of the next and 10% of the last 5%, affecting only 10% of the total population, the wealthy would still be vastly wealthy, but the bottom 90% wold have nearly 3x as much resources as the they have now.

    We aren't broke. The rich just have too much of the money.
