But for those making more than $1 million — there were 236,883 such households in 2009 — I would raise rates immediately on taxable income in excess of $1 million, including, of course, dividends and capital gains.In a time of high unemployment we don't want potential employers to have the resources or encouragement to hire people, and thuse make more money.
And for those who make $10 million or more — there were 8,274 in 2009 — I would suggest an additional increase in rate.Do all 8,274 agree with you.
My friends and I have been coddled long enough by a billionaire-friendly Congress. It’s time for our government to get serious about shared sacrifice.You don't need to wait for Congress to raise taxes. You can just make a donation to the treasury. Oh, it is not your taxes you want raised as much as other rich people.
