    More than anything else, what Reagan gave us is an enduring, entitled class of individuals who believe that work should be taxed, but wealth should not. These were the people who were the prime beneficiaries of Reagan’s first and most important tax cut: the one that brought down the top rate. Excerpt from:

    The income tax is levied on productive activities, not on accumulated wealth, fool.

    Accumulated wealth generates more wealth through investments, which IS taxable. The wealthy don't keep their money stuffed into a mattress!!! Who's the fools here? When a comment is so easily debunked, it's obvious you didn't consider the article at all, but just posted a knee-jerk reaction.

    Oh, so the wealthy don't keep their money in mattresses but invest it into even more productive activities instead?

    Thank you for that little lesson in economics, President Reagan. :lol::lol::lol:

    Is this a muffled cry for a wealth tax?

    You guys never cease to amaze me with your naked grabs at everybody else's money.

    Wasn't my lesson. Did you even read the article? Doesn't sound like it.
