People do not become billionaires so they can be punished by demented socialists. They can live anywhere in the world, Bern, and at sixty percent tax it will not be in the US. This angers me and I have not reached my first billion yet.

Besides the obvious - that this guy is an IDIOT - think about. If you were to have a wealth tax levied on you - where would get the money - forget the valuation issues? Bezos would have to sell stock. He does not have $43 billion just sitting around in cash. What would that do to the stock of Amazon if he had to dump 50% of his holdings - Gates, or Buffett - how much of Buffett's wealth is tied up in Bershire? Does that mean he dumps his stock in Berkshire and all of those companies that it owns has to be sold to liquidate him? This would cause a world wide depression. Good move Bernie - you raving IDIOT

Bernie has no clue. I might not respect Bezos and co much for their liberalism, but they stepped up to the plate this year. If they earned money Bernie, that is on you and your jackboot policies, because they made sure we got our deliveries of food, basic supplies and everything we used to go to the brick and mortar locations for. Did you expect us to sit home and starve Bernie? Because your side that runs 30 blue states shut things down and told us to stay home. So how else were we to survive? These idiots operate on their old pals envy, jealousy, petty greed and they don't have a clue what it takes to run a business. Why should they, for idiots like Bernie never held a job in their entire lives.

So what happens after one year? These Marxists just don't get it. Look at every city and state where confiscation of wealth takes place. The wealthy leave, and take their money with them. The current example is New York, but one could count California, Illinois, Oregon, as well as almost any of the Northeastern states.

The last time I checked, Bernie and Markey and Gillibrand were in the US Senate. Per Article I, Section 7, Clause 1 of the US Constitution, sometimes called the Origination Clause, all bills for raising revenue must start in the House of Representatives. It is so sad that the lawmakers are this ignorant of the law.

These kinds of proposals always end up taxing the middle class who are no where near billionaires or even millionaires. Clinton/Gore raised taxes on the Social Security drawn by those evil "ultra wealthy that hardly ever paid any taxes." And everyone cheered. But my elderly Mother who didn't have enough money to own a house and thus had to live in a cheap apartment got hit with that tax on her Social Security. What liars. They always claim to be taxing the rich but then they slide in an increase on the not rich.

#25, the Make Billionaires Pay Act IS being introduced in the House of Representatives. Sanders, Markey, and Gillibrand are merely getting the counterpart bill rolling in the Senate. Then, if the bills should pass (not a chance), the House and Senate get together in committee and work out any differences in a final bill. The House Bill has been introduced by guess who?

In her Wednesday DNC convention speech, Hillary Clinton implied that a “foreign adversary” could sway the U.S. elections, and suggested that an electoral college victory without a corresponding popular vote win would render the victor’s election illegitimate. “Vote for honest elections, so we, not a foreign adversary, choose our president,” Clinton implored viewers. “And don’t forget, Joe and Kamala can win by three million votes and still lose–take it from me. So we need numbers [to be] overwhelming so Trump can’t sneak or steal his way to victory.” Since losing the 2016 election, Clinton has repeatedly implied that President Trump has colluded with Russia both during and after his election victory.

Michelle Obama famously said, “When they go low, we go high.” She should have reminded her husband before he gave his speech for the online Democrat convention. Standing in a room in Philadelphia, with the words “Writing the Constitution” over his right shoulder, Obama gave a speech that almost wholly ignored Biden, whom he’d ostensibly come to praise. Instead, Obama viciously attacked Trump and did a constitutional rewrite that allowed him to cast Trump as a constitutional threat. From the start, Obama was up to his old tricks. Even while he wanted to use the Constitution to challenge Trump, he couldn’t praise it.

A series of anti-poverty billboards sponsored by a Black conservative group urges young people to finish school, get a job, get married and save money, but apparently that advice was too inflammatory for Milwaukee. The “Tired of Poverty” billboards, part of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education’s “Success Sequence” campaign, were removed this week by Clear Channel Outdoor after complaints about the message, which one local woman described as an “attack.” The four billboards featured photos of young Black people with the message, “Tired of Poverty? Finish school. Take Any Job. Get Married. Save & Invest. Give Back to Your Neighborhood.”

Michelle Obama's prerecorded speech for the first night of the Democratic convention was praised effusively and automatically by the "news" media. Because the media see it as their job to praise everything Michelle Obama does with overwhelming enthusiasm. Please try this imaginative exercise: When has a "news" professional ever asked Michelle Obama a challenging question? When has she ever been portrayed as anything less than Barack Obama's "not-so-secret weapon"? If you want to smell a whiff of authoritarianism in America, it feels almost illegal to speak one discouraging word about the first black first lady. Michelle Obama is America's most pampered princess, the most spoiled figure in our modern political history.
