48. There is no accounting or justification for their behavior except having the money taken away from t
them. The wealthy do not create jobs, they create more wealth for themselves by outsourcing and tax evasion so they can buy more of congress. The high tax bracket doesn't start until until you make $3.5million and $1 dollar. The higher rate only kicks in on that one dollar so you pay .45cents more on that dollar but not on the other $3.5mil. But look how they moan when they twist the facts. Most take their main office out of the country so they don't pay any American taxes though they have 12 employees in that other country and 1200 here and do most of their business here.

With higher wages people have money to spend and that keeps people working because with higher wages you can afford to spend on others goods and services but these greedy bastards used fraud to get as much personal gain as they could and to hell with the good of the nation and it's people. People cannot regulate their greed, only government can and only unions and government can ensure safety. Thank god for the FDA and the EPA or we'd already have plagues. Making it unsafe to be a billionaire is one of the best regulators known to man unless you can account for it fairly and honestly, not by knowing cheating people out of their life's savings through fraudulent credit default swaps which gained you a billion dollars while nearly bankrupting a nation.(Yeah, I'm looking at you Paulson...and your banker wanna bees)
