Not even Marx himself said he wanted to "equalize" incomes.
" We need to work toward the goal of equalizing income in our country and at the same time limiting the amount the rich can invest." "We need to raise the standard of living of our poor, unemployed and minorities. For example, we have an estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in our country who need our help along with millions of unemployed minorities. Stock market windfall profits taxes could go a long way to guarantee these people the standard of living they would like to have as 'Americans'."
I'm all for helping out, but incomes should be equal? Why not a 100% tax rate Nancy? Think of the revenue it will generate. Be afraid...be very afraid.
