Post(s) tagged with "taxes"
I am an American. I am in the highest tax bracket. I also work in entertainment—which is what Mr. Stein does as well.
I am fine with the tax increase. I think it patriotic that I am taxed in this way. I want to help my country.
I believe the fact that I can have a job this year, and hopefully every year to come, is a privilege.
Mr. Stein, there are Americans who qualify for this tax increase under the proposed plan who don’t feel “punished” by it. We feel it is our duty in hard times to help the rest of America.
And I am not talking about charity; this isn’t charity. We both give to charity, of our own choosing. Mr. Stein probably gives more than me.
This is about being a grown-up and accepting the fact that we made money during the bogus up-tick in the economy. We prospered. So did others in our ranks. A LOT.
Can I say A LOT one more time?
Now, it’s time to help the rest of America.
