    If this is true, then the experiment called the United States of America as we know it is done....

    Great. What is the consensus definition and criteria for “the very rich”? Is it more asset-based or more annual income-based?

    Wealth tax is something even Venezuela had balls to only recently add.

    It is total bullshit, 100% anti-American idea.

    Just proves how little the general population knows about the Constitution.

    What's anti-American is the billionaire-class hoarding wealth and buying tax loopholes so that entitlements go bankrupt, and their wealth keeps growing. I favor the top tax rate being ~7% higher than before the last tax cut, the VAT (Fed sales tax of ~3%), and taxing all income as earned income. I do not favor the wealth tax on "net worth", unless its only on the top 1%. Does Bloomberg really need all $53b? I don't think so.

    Polls are an accurate way of judging American minds ...

    I would bet a majority of Americans would like no federal taxes.

    That's a total lie don't believe it. They can't even pass one in a hard core blue state when the people have a chance to vote for one. Dem's tried and failed, it went down in flames with over 60% of the people voting no. This after Dem's went so far as to promise to steal the wealth from the rich and gift every dime to the poor and middle class. It still failed because its theft and wrong, voters told Dem's to shove the wealth tax up their ass.
