    Mr Price wants to know: Why are we not asking the wealthiest Americans to make the same sacrifices other Americans have already been asked to make?
    This is easy. First, you are not ASKING the wealthiest Americans to pay more, you plan to take it right out from under them and raid their earnings. Wow, those same earnings in which that wealthy American could use to give me a job!

    I am curious, if you took ALL these fortunate wealthy Americans money, every cent from the top quarter wage earners, what impact would it have on the spending debt? Not much I am sure, then what? I guess you would have to cut spending then!
