Obama tried to pass a law called the "Buffet Rule" that would make millionaire/billionaire CEO's pay at least 30% tax rates. But the republicans stopped the law from passing.

What get's me is why don't they complain about how she "earned" her money in the first place. That seems to be the big issue imo. She is extremely rich, but has she ever created jobs to earn it? Ever create a product or involved in something that made products for people? No. Speeches and other nonsense tide to politics. She's never actually done anything to truly earn being so wealthy.

Yet Romney, who worked with companies that provided services and had workers, was this big bad evil rich guy.

And then you get to the Clinton Foundation....what a sham that is. Hypocrites who don't hold her to the same standards they hold others.

Im waiting for Reid to say his close friend heard Hillary hasnt paid her taxes in years. Oh wait, that only is okay to do to Republicans..

How will forcing millionaire/billionaire CEO's to pay 30% tax rates hurt the economy?

Mitt Romney’s company Bain Capital created a series of firms that specialized in relocating jobs done by American workers to new facilities in low-wage countries like China and India.

Yes Romney did provide services and have workers (workers that specialized in moving American jobs to Asia.)

Yes there is too much money on politics and the system needs to be reformed, there are lobbyists attending every government and dictating the way politicians should vote.

You need to raise money to win in this political culture, is there an alternative.
While the Clinton Foundation takes $16 million a year from federal grants...

You better find a better excuse than that.

He gave more of his personal income to charity as well. Hillary takes money from terrorist countries that kill and surpress women and their rights and it's ok. 😂

This goes to show the ignorance of the left.

The rich arent rich due to income, its because they grew wealth.. And WE DONT TAX WEALTH AT ALL..

You can tax it at 100%, it wont generate a DIME in extra revenues..

Pretty ironic considering Warren's company owes about a billion in back taxes.
