#4 Now, now, you guys are much too hard on Hillary. After all, she did donate her $2 tighty whities to charity back in the 1980s.

#7 And when you run out of rich people to tap, then what?
These politicians are all parasites.

#9 The government of Sweden discovered otherwise. When they instituted higher taxes on millionaires, they just left. Tax revenues went down, but more importantly, in many cases the jobs those millionaires created left, too. Sweden then eliminated the millionaires tax when they elected a center-right government. Tax revenues increased, job creation increased, fewer Swedes were on welfare. They then re-elected that center right government. First time they had re-elected a center-right government in many decades.

#10 Oh, d**n--the lesser of Dem evils just goes off the rails. On the otherhand, if she means rich kings and sheikhs not improving the lives of their Palestinian wives' people instead of relying on US aid or amoral hedge fund traders that seek to undermine the constitutional republic we hold so dear & rich Russian arms traders, I mean tycoons, she may have a point...

#12 Rich people may be all mean and evil and nasty (except when they are making political donations to the correct party), but if you look at countries composed entirely of poor people, they don't seem to be doing to well.

#16 "There are rich people everywhere, and yet they do not contribute to the growth of their own countries."
That must be because rich people bury all their money in their gardens.
