File this under: no shit.
Elon Musk doesn't live off a weekly paycheck from Tesla.
The Communist idiocy of the national income tax (plank #2 of Marx's 10 Planks of Communism) doesn't touch people like him. It's just another collectivist lie that sucks the life out of the middle class.
The "uber-wealthy" make money by using the money they already have... wisely, not by punching a time-clock. They are taxed on those profits when-and-if they actually realize the profits.
The American proletariat, on the other hand, under The People's Tax Code (thanks, commies)... have their paychecks pillaged before they even see it, through the FITW.
I've known for a long time that if you have money and you want to keep it you need to retain a tax lawyer and a tax accountant. Thubut I s you can avoid over-paying on all your taxes. Even the upper middle class has the luxury of employing experts to minimize their taxes.
I really don't see why you would blame the income earner when accommodations for them are made by congress? But then again the rich are your bugaboo.
The middle class generally can't afford and perhaps doesn't really have enough money to retain a lawyer and accountant who probably won't save them more on their taxes than
they cost anyway.
If you want to complain about government revenues coming from mostly the middle class then that should be your target. Not demanding higher taxes for the rich. The rich have means to skirt what ever legislators throw at them and legislators don't want to disappoint because they get a lot of support from them in donations. Can't take that away!
As usual, you are a very shallow tinker when it comes to economics. I'm no economist but I have read enough to know your leftist view of attacking the rich is nothing but that - a socialist trope.
You're talent is race-baiting, better stick to that!
