Rich people and taxes... thoughts?

IMO what people forget is that taxes were paid to lay the infrastructure and services that allowed the rich and super rich to gain all of that wealth. It is A LOT harder in these days to start off a life, build a solid base and possibly take chances to become more than just solid. Now its tough just to survive.
R.I.P. Gov

but I do show—thanks to a lot of in-depth interviews with GOP sources—how they plotted to obstruct Obama before he even took office. I show how the stimulus was chock full of stuff they claimed to support until Jan. 20, 2009—not just things like health IT and the smart grid and energy efficiency and scientific research, but the very idea of Keynesian stimulus. Every presidential candidate in 2008 proposed a stimulus package, and Mitt Romney’s was the largest.
