Need the same thing to happen here. Hopefully falling over this physical cliff here accomplishes some of the same thing since it will affect the rich in one way or another or at least give their CPA's a headache.
What physical cliff are you speaking of and why would the rich fall off of it? Do you intend on pushing them because I do believe that would be considered murder?

Then again, perhaps that is exactly it. You were the absolute smartest out of everyone that rode the short bus to school with you, hence the "superior intellect".

The court didnt reject the 75% tax. Simply the method suggested. So the law just needs a few adjustments (thats currently under way to comply with the supremre courts ruling) and its ready to go into effect.

I would consider being hated by a pathetic little man like him to be badge of honor.

You know what will be a good idea if the rich start fleeing the U.S from tax increases we should have a party at the airport they are flying out of. A government official could be there and read a decree that they are banished from the U.S forever. People could celebrate one of the evil rich being banished from our country.

Wealthy may defer income, curb some spending after U.S. cliff deal



With the fiscal cliff avoided and U.S. tax rates rising for higher income households, financial advisers have gone into overdrive to help their clients mitigate the negative effects while trying to benefit from the greater clarity.


For those living beyond their means or close to it, such a tax rise could force them to cut spending by selling a holiday home or a yacht or curb dining out at expensive restaurants.


To feel comfortable, they may need to trim spending, alter investments or, in the worst case, sell one of two properties they own on Nantucket island in Massachusetts

Monopolies got along just fine before colluding with government... The free market didn't work. We tried it for thousands of years.

The great thing about yachts is they automatically have negative value. They are the ultimate sink for disposable income.

How exactly was the free market supposed to go naturally and perfectly about it's business of magically solving every possible problem, without intervention, when we hadn't even invented it yet?
