Great video, Brad. It is sometimes easy to get caught up in the "tax the rich" fervor that you don't see the forest for the tress. Clearly, our problems lie in a far deeper place than "the rich have all the money."I do think the video is a touch disingenuous in that it doesn't take into consderation the $2.5 trillion collected in federal tax revenue each year. With that money we could run the federal government for about...8 1/2 months. Well, then we just take all income over $250K ($1.4 trillion) and we have another 4 1/2 months covered. That way, we can run the federal government for a year and end the year with a SURPLUS!Granted, no one in the US will make more than $250K a year, but isn't that the point of all of this? And we could save Star Wars which, really, is the most important part of this whole exercise.
