I have mixed feelings about these proposed taxes.
On one hand I feel like extremely high taxes are wrong for anyone. That if you take away a good chunk or majority of peoples earnings they'll lose the main incentive to work as much. I'm not, but if I were rich I would abhor these taxes. But then again I think I'd give a lot of charity and know that deep down I wouldn't need all this money when all my wants and needs are metm
But on the flip side I believe some of these 10 percenters earn so much. Let's take the gaming industry for example. EA gave a new head millions for just joining the company if Im not mistaken. Instead of putting this money towards a respectable SimCity or Spore sequel they give this guy millions (don't recall his name). And correct me if I'm wrong but what do these heads do that's so special? Give orders? If anything the devs should be paid more.
On top of that the country is in need of desperate infrastructure updates. The NYC subway alone needs billions in upgrades/renovations and that's just one part of one of our cities.
I don't know. Maybe I'm leaning more towards these taxes but I don't want them to be as high. I doubt taxes will become too high but I've been wrong in the past. I don't understand how politicians still haven't made a decent budget after all these years.
