Getting wealthier off the backs of the tax payers

[@557376,AnneHoney] In that wealth-class it is all..."one" (the governmental/wealthy people complex)
[@557376,AnneHoney] so do the wealthy that get tax breaks from the government

[@388015,Chernobylplayground] the top 2% of earners in the US pay about 70% of taxes. The bottom 60% of earners pay none. Who is getting a tax break? You tell me. That said I would change the tax rates to eliminate some loop holes but politicians would lose reelection donations if they did that.

Whatever they can get away with

For the most part it is donated to charities and medical research. Take a look at the Gates foundation. They started a pledge that almost all the super wealthy in the West to donate all their wealth. Almost all that wealth they created. If they had not made it, it would not exist. So we should all me thankful.

[@557376,AnneHoney] What percentage do they keep for themselves to reinvest in their own wealth?
AnneHoney · 36-40, F
All their wealth goes to do good in their lifetime. Most of them like Gates still gets money from Microsoft and that too will go to charity. I think a billion $ of his wealth went to providing vaccines to people that could not afford them mainly in Africa.

The main point that most don’t understand is that his Billions did not come from other people, they were created by his discoveries/inventions. So the rich make us all better off.

Funny I would expect many in here are in the 1% actually.
