We should tax wealth apart from income...and put a backstop to prevent capital flight [View all]

an annual wealth tax of 1.5% above assets of over a million should go a long way in reducing deficit

In addition, to prevent assholes who have made their money here from taking their wealth and going to Monaco ... a punitive tax of 75% of their wealth created in USA, should be levied against those renounce US citizenship.


Obama should bring this up at the debt limit negotiations...

Wealth disparity is much worse than income disparity in this country ...
