we can tax the rich, but we don't
because the rich have
1. bought the media to convince us all that we shouldn't
2. bought government at all levels to make sure that they don't, that in fact, they do the opposite
to say that we are not able is just another way of telling us "don't even bother to try".
I say we try, and try, and try again
and if they leave this country to avoid taxes, then I say we tax foreigners at a higher rate than we tax citizens.
Plain and simple - if you make money from the American economy, then you pay to support the American society.
