    Would you rather have a growing economy where the rich guys get 9 out of every 10 dollars of new wealth that are created, or an economy where nobody gets anything? First scenario, you got a dollar, 2nd one you got nothin'.

    A hypothetical situation to be sure, but it sure feels like you guys are so wrapped around the axel that some rich guy gets 9 out of 10 dollars that you forget you'll end up with nothing. Personally, I think we're all better off getting the same slice out of a bigger pie than we are with a bigger slice of a smaller pie.

    Yes, it is hypothetical. More inequality does not make the economy growing faster -- and that is why it is a problem.

    They don't understand this concept. Facts are facts: Rich people pay our taxes, rich people create jobs. More rich people=better for america. It's not rocket science

    We have spent thirty years chasing your first hypothetical. It didn't work.

    I don't know where you are trying to go with the question.If you are referring to taxation, I think that their should be a flat tax or a "fairtax" like consumption tax instead of the flat tax.
