With the stock market at almost record levels shouldn't we be asking the rich to help out with the real economy more?

    Funny you asked that, Wall Street bankers recently said they'd gladly pay higher taxes to get rid of "the existential threat" that is Trump.

    They already drive the economy and provide jobs for 10’s of millions .. they pay most of the taxes and create new capital

    That's not going to happen w/ reps in power because the GOP works for the elite campaign donations, frequently at the expense of the rest. All one has to do is follow the money. This right wing disparity is why wages stagnated in the 70s f/ right wing erosion of union strength and why the gaps in class distinction continue to widen at an alarming rate.

    They play the market to make more money. They have lots when they sell off and then the market goes down.

    The bulk of stock market investment is people saving for retirement . 401ks IRAs and the like . When you fvcks cheer for a market crash you are cheering for 100 million Americans to lose their life savings .

    If you had a job or were saving for retirement you'd know that .

    Unemployed / low income Leftists seem to think it's only " tycoons " that hold stock as an investment .

    Who do you imagine is already paying over 80% of Federal income taxes?

     

    Didn't moms and your "teachers" explain to you who is paying taxes in this country?

    Instead, Trump wants to give them another tax cut 🙄
