Thom Hartmann: It's Time to Get Serious about Outlawing Billionaires



Its time to start funneling the riches produced by the American economy to the real job creators: working class people who are spending money. And the best way to do that is to outlaw billionaires with a 100% wealth tax on all assets over one billion dollars. We can call it the No Billionaires Campaign, and it just might be our best hope to save the American middle class.

1. Why can't Americans see the sense of this reasoning?

This makes so much sense that I cannot understand how any non-billionaire can argue against it.

5. Nobody's worth more than a billion dollars

It takes a lot of people to produce that much wealth. We are certainly all far from equal in our contributions to our economy, but the system is broken when someone is able to acquire so much wealth created by others.

The most sensible idea ever! Where is a petition so that I can add my name?
